May 2021 - The IFT

Whisky Tasting Social


We are holding a virtual whisky tasting social at 6.30pm on Thursday 6 May, hosted by The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS).

The event will be of interest to everyone whether you are a whisky “first timer”, a connoisseur, or anything in between and we will be assured of the very best quality and unique whiskies as SMWS only supply single cask, cask strength malts of which every one is different and rarely available other than to SMWS members.

The event will be hosted by John McCheyne, SMWS’ Master Brand Ambassador who has the enviable job of touring the world (in more normal times) talking about and supping the occasional whisky. He will talk us through a range of fine drams as well as telling us about the whisky-making process, and how to get the best out of the tasting process.

There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss and ask questions of John, or if you prefer just sit back and enjoy the tasting.

We have arranged a special discounted price for this event of £25 per person which includes a pack of five miniature bottles.

If would like to join this event, please email Natasha at the IFT with your full name, delivery address and contact telephone number. Natasha will invoice you for the event and then send Zoom details.

Responses are required by Friday the 16th of April  in order to allow time for the whisky packs to be sent to you.

The event is kindly sponsored by our member Nick Goldstone, turnaround director and principal of South Ford Consulting (

We look forward to seeing you all there
