How to Woo Your Favourite Whisky Enthusiast on Valentine's Day

PUBLISHED IN scotch, whisky, macallan
There is often a lot of pressure to be romantic and thoughtful on Valentine’s Day. Which is slightly ironic considering it marks to day St. Valentine was brutally killed.
But all killing aside, Valentine’s Day has become an international celebration of love, and here we want to spread that love to all our Whisky fans and their significant others.
With that in mind, we’ve come up with gift ideas that will definitely make the Whisky lover in your swoon.

Take them to...


Renowned as being one of the most picturesque distilleries, you can’t help but fall in love with Strathisla. It is also one of the oldest continuously working distilleries and has a long and varied history.

The views from Strathisla are out on to the beautiful countryside of Speyside. Scotland has been named the most beautiful country in the world, and Speyside plays a big part in that achievement. Strathisla is placed right in the middle of the region and is truly remarkable. It is the perfect place to bring the person you love for Valentine’s Day.

Strathearn is a quaint distillery that also happens to be one of Scotland’s smallest. An experience day at Strathearn is a day out that any Whisky lover will adore. They offer three packages, including a one day, three day and five day Whisky school, where you can learn all about what it takes to become a master distiller.

This is the perfect romantic experience to bring your favourite Whisky enthusiast. You can learn more together about the wonderful world of Whisky, and enjoy the quaint surroundings of Strathearn at the same time.

The Macallan 12 Year Old Glass Set

You can’t go wrong with Macallan, and with this set you can both enjoy a great dram together. This malt has been matured in sherry casks, to give it lots of spice and fruity sweetness. There is a gentle undertone of smoke as well that really picks up on the palate. This is a fantastic Scotch. This limited edition pack comes with two branded glasses, so you can enjoy it together!
