All in the name of craftsmanship and whisky

This event has finished

Your budget may not always stretch to incredible single malt whiskies, but in November the Scotch Malt Whisky Society and Speyside's Balvenie Distillery are hosting a pop-up at Zenith Interiors where you can taste a dram or two. They are teaming up with local craftspeople to showcase why somethings are just better when they are made by hand. On display will be the bar and stonework of Kris and Tim Torma, Cinnamon Lee's metal work, Tim Kill and his mad luthier skills, Ruth Allen's glassware, Nick Haddow's artisan cheeses and the designs of Brad Nicholls. That's right, you've got stonemasons, carpenters, designers, cheesemakers, glassblowers, metal workers and a freaking luthier to have a chat to while you get a taste for some seriously high-class whisky. The first half of a week never looked so good.
