The 2019 term of the Springbank Whisky School has now started.
Week 1 saw us welcome Darien, Felix, Kylie, Lars, Michael and Soren who joined us from a range of countries including Germany, New Zealand, Sweden and USA.
This great group worked at Springbank throughout the week as they took part in malting, production and bottling. They were also the first group to try our new blending session where they blended their own whisky to take away once their time with us had finished.
We are also delighted to say that the group enjoyed their stay in the town and perhaps spent time enjoying the convivial atmosphere to be found in the local pubs - although that probably made the Whisky School exam a little harder on Friday morning!
The group were awarded their bottles and certificates before they left - with Felix being named 2019’s first Scholar of the Week for the effort he displayed over the previous few days.
Well done to all the Week 1 pupils - we hope to see you all again soon!
