Blend your own whisky!

Are you passionate about whisky but can’t decide which is your favourite – why not indulge in a unique whisky blending experience? Guests at Shieldaig Lodge are invited to blend their very own whisky under the guidance of the hotel’s resident whisky connoisseur.

The experience involves taking twelve samples of whisky and carefully blending them using a specially designed kit. In keeping with the Highland theme, the whiskies are served on stylish tasting antlers which have been handcrafted to hold whisky glasses. Perfect for couples, groups and whisky enthusiasts, guests can taste each of the samples and then select their favourite bases, mixes and finishes to create a special whisky that is unique to their individual taste. To complete the experience, the hotel can arrange for guests’ unique blends to be bottled, given a special label with the new whisky’s chosen name and delivered home as a souvenir. For guests who don’t have a palate for whisky, the hotel also offers a gin flight experience.

The Whisky Blending experience at Shieldaig Lodge is from £80 per person. Personalised bottles are from £40 each.
