1 October 2018 @ 15:30 - Whisky Tasting: The Creative Whisky Co with Paul McKendrick

Location: St James Hall Duration:  1 hour 15 Minutes. In late 2004 a (very) young man by the name of David Stirk was deciding where his future lay. He loved Scotch whisky, and the love was reciprocal. So with every dime, nickel and more importantly, pound, that he had, he bought his first cask which sold like reasonably priced bottles of supreme, lip-smacking, old & ex-Sherry matured whisky and The Creative Whisky Co Ltd was forged.  And the rest is history - although David notes that no-one has deemed it good enough for a movie, documentary, book or even a Wikipedia page. Paul joined CWC 3 years ago as General Manager and one of his many responsibilities is to undertake tastings so he will be hosting this event which will be looking at the latest releases from CWC. Over 18's only please. Please ensure you have read our terms and conditions for events. If you want to contact us about this event please email enquiries@whiskyshopdufftown.com or phone on +44(0)1340 821 097. The price of a ticket to this event includes VAT (VAT No GB 875018023).
