The Great Whisky Debate – tutored tasting

Taste some of the world's finest whiskies as Scotland and Japan go head to head at Epernay

The Great Whisky Debate – tutored tasting

At Epernay on 3 August, we'll be holding the Great Whisky Debate in association with the Boutique Bar Show. It's a tutored whisky tasting that will pitch the best of Scotland's distillers against the stars of Japan.

It's a chance to become a whisky connoisseur while enjoying a drink with fellow Confidential readers.

Scotch whisky has long reigned supreme as the finest in the world. But a new contender is rising in the East. Japanese whisky took the title of Best Whisky in the World in 2008.

At this event, you can taste some of the finest creations each country has to offer – and decide who you think deserves the whisky crown.

Representing Scotland will be the world-famous Glenlivet distillery in Moray. Described as 'The single malt that started it all', Glenlivet was founded in 1824 and is still winning international accolades. You'll be tasting the the Glenlivet 18-year-old, the Glenlivet 21-year-old, and the Longmorn 16-year-old.

Representing Japan will be Suntory, the whisky producer that Bill Murray's character was in Tokyo to promote in Lost in Translation. They were Whisky Magazine's Distiller of the Year in 2010. You'll taste their Yamazaki single malts, which have been gaining recognition and growing in stature amongst malt enthusiasts worldwide, and their sublime Hibiki 17-year-old blended whisky – another world-class whisky that is not to be missed.

At the tasting expert tutors from both companies will take you through the different whiskies in a relaxed but informative evening. You'll learn about the regions and history of each distillery and will be guided through the differences in taste between the whiskies.

If you've always fancied learning a bit more about whisky and exploring brands you may not have tasted before, this evening is for you. Tickets are very reasonable at just £10 – that includes expert tuition and six different types of whisky with a retail value over £300. There are only 30 places available so it will sell out. Act now if you want a ticket.

It takes place at Epernay Champagne Bar near the Great Northern Warehouse in the city centre on 3 August from 7pm-9pm.
