    It was a short walk to a local pub, where we had a private, comfortable room. The set-up was perfect for a small group to listen and enjoy the colorful and entertaining stories of Scottish history, particularly that of whiskey. The storyteller was professional grade! He was knowledgeable, welcoming and hysterical at times! We highly recommend this fun 2-hour event…where you’ll get a taste of history and different types of Scotch Whiskey, while meeting people from all over the world!

    A great introduction to Scottish whisky which was enjoyed by all in our group - from complete beginners to seasoned whisky drinkers. The guide knew a lot about the whisky making process, the distilleries and about the whiskies themselves. He was very funny and self-deprecatring with a great Scottish sense of humour. We had an international group who seemed to love it too. The venue was an old Scottish pub with a Billy Connolly connection. And a good selection of whisky!

    We loved meeting and spending a couple of hours with Greg talking and learning about whisky, hearing some folk stories and generally having a chilled out time in the pub. Greg was great and has a bit of the Billy Connolly about him (hopefully this is a compliment Greg!). Would highly recommend Ben and Becky
