If you have the Brexit blues, this multi-sensory workshop by The Balvenie may well be the perfect excuse for you to drown (and down) your sorrows, Scottish-style. Honestly, we can’t think of anything better than a dram to honor Brexit, since Scotland overwhelmingly voted in favor of remaining in the EU.

In partnership with perfumer NoseWhoKnows and the Manhattan Bar, the Scottish firm has created special tasting sessions for the female drinker in mind, training her to identify the multitude of aroma and taste characters in whisky. The affable (and very knowledgeable) Neil Strachan, who is also Regional Brand Ambassador of Southeast Asia, leads the workshop and if his witty Scottish humor and cheeky grin doesn’t put the smile back on your face, little else will. Together with Sandy Blandin, Fragrance Creative Director of NoseWhoKnows, the sessions introduce the five Rare Crafts of the Balvenie through interactive activities that engage and educate women on the different flavor notes in a dram of whisky.

“As the world’s most handcrafted single malt whisky, The Balvenie pays attention to the finest details to produce whisky that is acclaimed by the industry and connoisseurs alike. The Balvenie is at the forefront of craft whisky and we are honored to partner with a renowned perfumer like NoseWhoKnows, who are craftsmen in their own right,” said Strachan.

The exclusive workshop will be opened to public and with only 10 participants per session, you’ll have to act fast to secure yourself a spot. Email [email protected] for more details.
