“Talisker at Sea” Tasting on board the MS Kleine Freiheit (Event)

"Talisker at Sea" Tasting by Christiansen's in Hamburg (Isle of Skye Single Malt Scotch Whistky Diageo Tasting Event)

Talisker has the motto “Made by the sea” written in silver or gold on all of its bottles for a reason.

Pernod Ricard Tasting with The Glenlivet, Aberlour & Longmorn at Christiansen’s (Event)

Pernod Ricard Tasting at Christiansen's (Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky Longmorn Ballantine's The Glenlivet Aberlour Event)

Although I had enjoyed drams at Christiansen’s before, I never got to attend one of the many tastings they host in their premises throughout the year. So when I read on Facebook that the bar would stage a Pernod Ricard masterclass with renowned spirits consultant Jürgen Deibel (more…)
