Introduction to Scotch Whisky
With a rich heritage and longstanding traditions, Scotch has historically been marketed as a luxury spirit for sipping rather than mixing in cocktails. However, as more affordable, cocktail-focused Scotch whiskies enter the market, we will see more Scotch-based cocktails like the Blood and Sand or Penicillin on the menus of craft cocktail bars.
This introductory course will provide you with a basic understanding of Scotch. This course will explore:
- A brief history of Scotch, how it is made and Scotch-producing regions
- How to read a Scotch label; including information on the styles of Scotch and common labelling terms
- How to recommend a Scotch cocktail to a guest
- The basics of popular Scotch cocktails
Whether you prefer a single malt for sipping or a soft blended whisky for mixing, there is a Scotch to satisfy your taste. Let's learn about Scotch!
