Spirits company responds to the cost of living crisis by releasing their first ‘host-your-own’ Whisky Club tasting sets.
The current economic climate means more and more people are finding it difficult to go out and meet friends and family in pubs and restaurants, but Azu Spirits is still set on bringing people together and has just released a ‘host-your-own’ Whisky Club blind tasting series for those not able to attend their Whisky Club monthly tasting events.
A five-month series with 30 single malts to explore and a new theme every tasting, each set includes 6 x 100ml sharing bottles, a guide, tasting tips, a flyer exploring the particular theme, and the ‘reveal’ envelope for when you’re ready to discover which is which.
A complete at-home experience designed for an entertaining evening with friends. The series is sold online on the Azu Spirits website HERE for £96 and includes plenty for 4 – 6 people to share.
The current Whisky Club series is based around exploring the roots of flavour, and themes include the Regions of Scotland, Peat, Distillation and Maturation, ending with a Burns Night Special finale. In the spirit of blind tasting, Azu has included a ‘blind tasting challenge’ in every box to reflect the particular theme. For example, in the first tasting set, the blind tasting challenge is whether you can identify the six regions, in the ‘Peat in Scotch whisky’ tasting set, you can explore the impact of peat by trying to identify which peated and unpeated expressions come from the same distillery.
A blend of indulgence, entertainment and education. The Whisky Club offers those interested in Scotch whisky an exploration into the fascinating spirit. An opportunity to expand their whisky collection, by January 2023 Azu Spirits will have ‘Build your own’ tasting sets available with a choice of over 35 single malt whiskies.
As well as their winter whisky series, Azu is releasing a smaller introduction to the blind tasting, with 6 x 30ml bottles great for one or two people in addition to their classic sharing boxes. Designed as the perfect gift for a whisky or gin lover, and to introduce those interested in the blind tasting before they go on to share with friends, Azu’s mini tasting sets will be available in November ready for the perfect Christmas whisky gift.
