Scotch Whisky Tasting @ the 50th Charleston Scottish Games
(Admission Ticket / Token must be purchased separately at the Whisky Tasting Venue)
Scots are proud of their whisky! It’s no wonder – after all, the term ‘whisky’ comes from the Gaelic uisge beatha, which translates as the ‘water of life’. And anything called the ‘water of life’ must be worthy of a bit of a celebration, surely?
Our Scotch tasting tent will feature top distillers from all over Scotland. You can opt for a ticket that provides entry to a whisky class where you will have the chance to try special and rare malts and go on a remarkable whisky journey, or you can simply purchase tokens and try the whisky of your choice!
