Private Tastings for Warehouse 24 members only

As a Warehouse 24 member, you have an opportunity to attend one of the free daily private tastings with UK Ambassador, Dr Andrew Forrester. Most importantly, you'll have a chance to sample something rather special pulled from the cask with The Balvenie Dipping Dog.

Though these private tastings are free for our Warehouse 24 members, each session is limited to just 15 people, so booking in advance is essential.

Dates and times for our private tastings are as follows:

Thursday 26th Sept 5:30pm – 6:30pm
Friday 27th Sept 5:30pm – 6:30pm
Saturday 28th Sept 12.30pm – 1.30pm
2:00pm – 3:00pm
4.00pm – 5.00pm

Cooperage Displays

Ever wondered how a barrel is made and how it stays perfect for all those years? Ever wanted to have a go at making one? Now’s your chance.

The Balvenie Master Cooper, Ian McDonald will be on hand for those curious to discover more about the craft and skills involved in coopering.

With impromptu sessions happening all day, there will be plenty of opportunities to test your own skill and see just how important each stave is to the end result that sits in your glass.

(There’s no need to pre-book as sessions are on a first-come-first- served basis and will last about 30mins.)
