Dram Queen, Fields of Flowers & Smoked Salmon Experience

Join the Dram Queen on the family farm for this special whisky tasting experience in her dram room, followed by an inspiring nature walk through fields of wildflowers to a picturesque pond to taste some more drams with locally smoked salmon.

Over the drams she shares the story of how the farm changed from growing barley for malt whisky to providing habitats for insects, birds, and other wildlife plus many entertaining anecdotes.

Dinners or Lunches with Tastings

Ann has created many successful whisky dinners, in collaboration with chefs and culinary experts, to match Scotland’s larder with its delicious drams. She developed the successful Aberlour Whisky Dinners with whisky expert, writer and chef Martine Nouet. These were a highlight of the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival for a dozen years, always selling out rapidly. She has hosted many more food and whisky events in Speyside and around the world over the years.

Ann is always happy to create and host dinners combining the best local produce with great drams and to entertain guests with anecdotes about the world of Scotch whisky. These dinners can be organised in conjunction with hotels or restaurants – in Speyside or beyond – to suit your own plans.

Tastings with Canapés

A pre-dinner tasting with canapés paired to each dram is guaranteed to get any evening off to a good start.
