Whisky Tasting Masterclass
Thursday 30 May
Gordon & MacPhail is delighted to invite the INSEAD alumni based in Scotland and their guests to join whisky expert Stephen Rankin for an evening of education, single malts and entertainment.
Stephen is the company’s Director of Prestige and a member of the fourth generation of the family owners. He has spent almost two decades working for Gordon & MacPhail and has been made a Keeper of the Quaich in recognition of his contribution to the whisky industry.
Stephen will welcome you to the Scotch Bar in the iconic Balmoral Hotel. Here you will be greeted with a glass of champagne to cleanse the palate before Stephen takes you through a Whisky Masterclass, accompanied by canapes delicately crafted by the hotel’s executive chef.
Gordon & MacPhail, throughout its 124 year history, has built a reputation as one of the leading creators of single malt Scotch whisky with stocks maturing under its expert control from over 100 distilleries.
Stephen has curated a selection of rare and enticing single malts for the evening and looks forward to sharing these with you, together with his knowledge of the company and the relationship between spirit and oak.
