Wat we doen

This group is for single-malt whisky-tasting lovers who want to practise speaking English at the same time.

All levels of whisky appreciation are welcome, and it helps to have some basic English conversation skills.

Are you a whiskyphile who drinks for the appreciation of the taste rather than to get drunk? Do you savour the flavour, the aromas, palette and finish of single malts?

Do you want guidance from an English-language expert with 25 years' experience to help you speak more eloquent English?

And would you like to combine the two in a relaxed, informal, open-minded, non-judgmental environment where you feel supported and safe to be yourself, have fun and learn about Scotch and English?

During the meetup we will have conversations around specific topics, including the art of drinking whisky, while tasting and learning about whiskies. Each meetup will focus on a different linguistic issue. For example, we will work on self-presentation skills so that you can introduce or present yourself better in English.

The whiskies for tasting come from, but are not limited to, a stock of 25 single malts.

Amsterdam Scotch & English Meetup (tasting & speaking)

Scotch and English Centre

€ 50,00

During this first session, we will get to know each other and taste 5 different single-malt whiskies. The tasters will be decent-sized shots, not the one-millilitre samples you get in whisky bars. The whiskies will range from sweet and light summery malt to heavily charred and peaty winter malt, with one exclusive guest malt that will knock your socks off! Each member can introduce themselves in English and ask for support as to how to improve this skill from the mastermind group. We will have a discussion about whisky, the various types and learn about its history. We will also give input regarding the content of future sessions and what members would like to learn and focus on most. NB: Attendees should bring their own favourite whisky glass!
