Event - Rock Lobsters Session 1, 2017

Salt Crusted Drams

Blistering Barnacles! We are going nautical with this tasting as we explore the salty side of the dram.

We can definitely say there will be smoke, layers of salt, a wrapping of kelp and a bucket of herrings but there is also going to be delicate sherry, refined oak and layers of distillation finesse that will be leaving you smacking your lips for more.
