  • Whiskey Lessons at Angel's Share

Ron Taylor has been studying spirits for over 30 years and lecturing for 10. Born in Scotland, you’ll be hard pressed to find one who knows more about the “water of life” than this Hong Kong resident.

Starting from February 11th Angel’s Share will be hosting professor Taylor for a series of 4 whiskey education sessions. Whisky has a huge variety of classes and types, so besides how to appreciate its taste, there is actually quite a lot to learn.

Attending from the first foundational course, ‘What is Scotch Whiskey?’ on Saturday, February 11th, to the very last course ‘Let the cask do the task’ on Saturday, March 31st, may not get you a doctorate, but it will certainly ensure you have a much deeper understanding of everything whiskey.

These courses are back by popular demand, so if you’re interested it’s advisable to sign up as soon as possible.

$450 per person, 6:30-7:30pm
Feb 11, 25 and Mar 10, 31.

Enroll by calling 2805-8388 or email
