Whisky TastingFollowing on from the end of the Conference day and after the SOM AGM, we have arranged for the world-renowned Scotch Malt Whisky Society to come to the Assembly Rooms and provide a tasting of some of their unique drams.

Each participant will be able to enjoy 3 drams of the Society’s unique whiskies.  These are not available anywhere else and a presentation from one of the Society’s experts will provide some explanation and background. 

This promises to be a special opportunity and will be informative and unique, even if you are not (yet!) a whisky drinker!
