Thomson Whisky tasting - Thursday 20 August, 6pm, $40pp

At Regional Wines, Beers and Spirits - 15 Ellice Street, Wellington 6011

Thomson are our spirit of the month for August and will be at Regional Wines to host an upstairs tasting showcasing their amazing whiskies.

Thomson began independently bottling whisky made at the Willowbank distillery many moons ago. Now, with a new distillery in operation they blend whiskies and distill single malt, using a hand-beaten copper pot still, and a variety of cask types for ageing; ex-bourbon barrels, NZ red and white wine casks.

Kick things off with a Thomson Victor Gin G&T before diving into a selection of Thomson's finest malt - including a raft of maunka and peat smoked whiskies aged in ex-New Zealand Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wine casks.

Here is the lineup...
