Blend and bottle your own Scotch whisky in the very place it was pioneered and created hundreds of years ago!

Follow in the footsteps of Victorian era whisky blenders by sampling and studying a range of Scotch single malts, under the guidance of our whisky ambassador to learn the fine blend of science, art, and interpretation to create you very own whisky in the birthplace of the Scotch blended whisky.

The single malts used to create your own blend have been supplied by Chivas Brothers, another historic Scottish blending dynasty, as well as being operators of The Glenlivet single malt distillery. Famous worldwide, The Glenlivet was distributed from the Usher’s Peartree house headquarters as early as the 1820’s and used as the foundation single malt of their original Victorian recipes.

Six serves of whisky and your own 200ml bottle to take home. 

Please arrive at The Counting House in Pear Tree House no later than 18:50. 34 W Nicolson St, Newington, Edinburgh EH8 9DD.

You will be consuming approximately nine units of alcohol over the course of the evening therefore we recommend you eat before the event so that you don’t consume alcohol on an empty stomach.

Please note this is a guided tasting and blending class. We do not condone reckless consumption of alcohol, consuming whisky as shots and the 200ml bottle of whisky produce at the end of the session is not to be consumed on site. We will not allow inebriated individuals into the tasting and have the right to refuse entry to any of the venues or remove guests from the tasting without refund if they are drink, disruptive or abusive.

If you would like to scale up your very own recipe of blended Scotch this can be done after the tasting but must be before 21:45 so we have time to retail the bottle as per Scottish licensing laws. 

A 700ml bottle costs £45.00
