The G&M Upper Connoisseurs Choice Tasting - w/ special guest Stephen Rankin - Friday 6th May
After the success of last years first joint East Coast Whisky and Gordon & Macphail online tasting, I am delighted to present our next one. This time we are focusing on delicious whiskies of 30yrs+ in age, from a range of cask-types, all found in G&M’s Upper Connoisseurs Choice range, as well as taking a small glimpse into their Private Collection. We also have Stephen Rankin, G&M’s Director of Prestige, joining us. He is a 4th generation family member for the company, and has decades of experience in the whisky industry. He has been recognised for this as a Master of the Quaich. Stephen is a great host with lots of stories to share and information to give. It will be an excellent tasting!!
