Islay Whisky Academy: Learn the Language of Scotch

1st June 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:45 pm

Thursday June 1 Learn the Language of Scotch, 10am – 4.45pm: Scotch whisky may be easy on the tongue, but their Gaelic names can be a challenge! Come along to this workshop and learn the foundations of the Gaelic language – through a whisky perspective. We’ll explore the linguistic background of place names and how to pronounce the Gaelic names of distilleries. Using the Gaelic flavour wheel specially created by Rachel MacNeill, sample 3 Single Malts and learn how to talk about aroma notes in Gaelic. No prior knowledge of Gaelic necessary – this workshop is welcome to all whisky enthusiasts. Learn more about IWA Open Day here.( IWA Open Day Feis Ile 2023 | Islay Whisky Academy_
