Join us for an exclusive whisky & food pairing event, conducted by whisky expert Alwynne Gwilt, AKA Miss Whisky.

Alwynne, William Grant & Sons UK Whisky Specialist, has been involved in the whisky industry since starting her blog Miss Whisky in 2011. A former journalist, she started her blog to widen the conversation on whisky, and as one of the first female whisky bloggers in the UK, has been named one of the Top 10 Women in Whisky. In her new role with William Grant & Sons – one of the last remaining family-owned whisky companies in Scotland – she looks after the Ancient Reserves portfolio, which includes single malts Kininvie and Ailsa Bay, single grain Girvan Patent Still, and blended whisky Rare Cask Reserves.

Excellent event, with unusual and very interesting whisky's including a few surprises. The event was made even better by good food pairings which made it a real taste-fest. Would love to do it again. Visited Town House at The Kensington on 2016-07-27
