CLAN FARQUHARSON 2020 VIRTUAL GATHERING
FRIDAY 14th AUGUST (8pm - 9pm BST)
Clan Farquharson UK has partnered with Skene Whisky to host an exclusive online Whisky Tasting this evening. This will be what is known as a Hybrid event, an event that blends Virtual with Real as you will be able to physically pour, nose and taste 4 Scottish malts while an interactive tasting is conducted online. This opportunity will be offered in priority to Members and Friends of Clan Farquharson UK and will be limited to the first 50 UK registrants (aged 18 years +). Registrations will close for this event on the 7th August 2020, following which all Registrants will receive a box of 4 Whisky samples (each 15ml) delivered directly to their door. The deadline may be extended by a few days and opened to a wider UK audience should some spaces remain, so, if you wish to participate but are not yet a Member of Clan Farquharson UK, it is important that you add your name and email address to the waiting list. Members of Clan Farquharson Societies overseas are also welcome to participate, either in a purely spectating capacity or as active participants, in which case they will be responsible for procuring their own whisky samples locally as we are unable to send samples abroad on this occasion.
The Tasting will be conducted by ZOOM, details follow registration.
Your hosts will be Andy Skene, Founder of Skene Whisky (photo opposite)
and Jonathan Findlay, President of Clan Farquharson UK (below opposite).
We will be tasting 4 Whiskies from Scotland:
A Bourbon Cask Single Malt (Speyside)
A Sherry Cask Single Malt (Highland)
A Peaty Single Malt (Islay)
A Blended Malt (31 Year Old)
This will be a free event, although donations will be welcome, all proceeds going to Raising the Standard, the fundraising appeal for the restoration of Braemar Castle.
All whisky samples will be selected, sourced, provided and dispatched by Skene Whisky under license.
Please consume responsibly and ensure that all participants and/or spectators of the event are of a legal age to drink alcohol in their country of residence.
