Whisky and doughnuts. A match made in… well, we’ve never heard of it. But as soon as we did, we decided everyone had to hear about it!

The Birmingham Whisky Club, bringing you whisky events throughout the year. Championing the dram and encouraging men and women across our fair city to discover (or rediscover) the diverse and wonderful world of whisky. Amy Seton (founder) and co. have established themselves as THE go-to whisky connoisseurs in the city, and now they are matching whisky with doughnuts. And we’re slightly (ok, hugely) excited about this. Here’s the lowdown.

201705201402-World Whisky Day-2

On Friday 13 October, taking place at craft beer and cask ale haven, The Wellington, The Birmingham Whisky Club invites you to a ridiculously awesome tasting event that sees The Elements of Islay single malt whiskies matched with doughnuts. The rules are simple: you turn up, you learn all about The Elements of Islay and their awesome whiskies alongside a group of like-minded whisky fans, then you taste 5 of said whiskies and 5 of said doughnuts. Throughout the evening you’ll be regaled with whisky and doughnut facts, and then you’ll get the opportunity to ask your most-burning, deep-fried dough-related questions. It’s a doozy. You drink, you eat, you learn. What’s not to enjoy? 

Your next move: Grab a whisky and doughnut loving friend, grab yourself a ticket to this wonderful event and then head to The Wellington posthaste! Well on Friday 13 October anyway…

For whisky, and for glory, we’ll see you there!
