Burns Night – Cocktails & Drams

written by Melina

We love a good whisky here at Hel’s Angels HQ and thankfully quite a few of our talented Angels are partial to a drop of the good stuff too. With this enthusiasm our Angels tend to naturally acquire a fantastic broad knowledge, which we refine through further training and mentored campaign placement.

Whisky continues to explode within the big brand industry and small distilleries are springing up all over. Whilst this is great news for customers and the variety of choice, some may find it intimidating.

Finding the right whisky for you is a personal journey and with so much diversity on offer a little guidance is often welcome. This is where Hel’s Angels in partnership with William Grant & Sons aims to break down these barriers by bringing the tasting experience to members of the public.

You will find our hand-picked Angels across the country supplying immersive experiences with samples in the on-trade & retail environment, leading Glenfiddich masterclass workshops and teaching customers the basics of Whisky tasting with a range of Glenfiddich’s drams.

As if all that wasn’t exciting enough, you can now learn the history of Glenfiddich and tour around the distillery, delving into the making of the Whisky that has made Glenfiddich world famous, from the comfort of the pub. Hel’s Angels are showcasing Glenfiddich VR, which is a unique experience that allows the guest to immerse themselves in the world of Glenfiddich Whisky through a virtual reality headset.
