Sietse Offringa
What began in 1879—the year that the first exceptional single malt flowed from the stills at The Glenrothes Distillery in the town of Rothes— continues today. The making of a no-nonsense, finely crafted single malt. A whisky that carries its heritage with pride, but which isn’t weighed down by history. A whisky of integrity, authenticity and expert craft. Above all, a whisky of honesty.

This fall, The Glenrothes launches a completely new range of Scottish single malt whisky and this with a surprising packaging.

International brand ambassador Sietse Offringa will introduce you to this new range - including a 25 year old top single malt - and will reveal Master Whisky Maker Gordon Motion his line of reasoning behind his creations.

There will also be an exclusive tasting limited edition expression that will only be available for sale in a few months, really worth it to join this masterclass!
Available tickets: 14
