Whisky Classes



Create your own blended whisky to take home and savour. Delve into the malts and mastery it takes with a guided tasting and lesson on the craftsmanship of Master Blending. Whether you consider yourself an expert or a complete novice, a visit to The Blend class at Brewhemia will bring out the whisky expert in you.

Join us in The Bothy and learn about the heritage and history of premium whisky, including the origins of single malt and grain whiskies.

Sample different malts with flavours varying from creamy, smoky, citrus, fruity and floral, as well as delicate grain Scotch whisky.

Study the craftsmanship of a master blender and learn how the different flavour notes are blended to create the distinctive Chivas Regal house style, then give it a go yourself to create your very own to take home.


Ever wondered about the science of whisky blending, or why certain whiskies are smooth as silk and others deliver quite the fiery kick?

Now’s your chance to find out. Scotch blended whisky specialists, Chivas Regal are giving guests a unique opportunity to delve into the fascinating world of Scotch and learn about the highly skilled process of making Chivas Regal blended Scotch whisky during their whisky blending workshop.

Global interest in Scotch whisky has never been higher. This is illustrated by the fact that Scotch whisky exports hit a record high last year, with bottles of the stuff making their way to drinking cabinets everywhere from Spain to Singapore, from France to the Florida coast.

Chivas know a thing or two about Scotch whisky, and have been practicing the art of blending since James Chivas first started experimenting with some of the aged Scotch laid out in the cellar of his Aberdeen grocery store in the mid-19th century.

Led by their knowledgeable tutor, guests will first learn about the different processes that go into making grain whisky and single malts and the role each of these liquids, and their respective flavour profiles, play in the art of whisky blending.

Tutorial over and the basics of Scotch whisky blending absorbed, guests will have the chance to get hands-on, as they are challenged to apply their newly-acquired knowledge to making their very own unique whisky blend – which they will be able to take home and enjoy.
