Local spirits tasting specialist, Azu Spirits, and the Cridford Inn, a pub restaurant based in the Teign Valley, launched their first Whisky Club Series on 1st September. A monthly whisky series exploring the histories, culture and production of single malt Scotch, with a new theme and six unique malts to explore every month. The tastings, accompanied with food pairings from the Cridford’s award-winning restaurant, are centred around blind tasting and include challenges and prizes.

Their next tasting event is scheduled for 7pm on Thursday 6th October and explores peat in Scotch whisky. Including peated and unpeated expressions from the Bruichladdich and Springbank distilleries in addition to Glen Moray Peated and Glenfiddich Fire & Cane, guests have the opportunity to ‘challenge’ their palate through the blind tasting and can try to identify which whiskies comes from the same distillery.

The Whisky Club includes a Burns Night Special finale which hosts a raffle to win whisky prizes and local experiences. For £10, guests can become Club Members and receive a Glencairn nosing glass, a personal discount code to Azu’s website and a free 30ml miniature whisky of their choice to take away from each tasting event they attend. Whisky Club Members will also be given a raffle ticket for the prize giveaways at the Burns Night Special.

Each tasting event will be £35 per person, with discounted packages available for guests wanting to attend the whole series. 

For those that can’t attend, Azu offers a ‘host-your-own’ option that’s available from their website and provides a complete blind tasting experience for 5-6 people.
