Theme selection

Just like any other party or event, a whisky tasting party also should be hosted with a theme. You have a lot of options when it comes to tasting whisky. Ranging from Scottish to Australian, American, single malt whisky Glen Scotia, there are various expressions of whisky that come from different parts of the world to be served in your glass.

Consider picking on a theme and pair it up with similar food items and snacks to throw the perfect party for your fellow glass partners.

Get the setting ready

If you are hosting the whisky tasting party at home, pick one corner of your home where your guest can feel comfortable while clinking their glasses together. Whether it is your lawn, drawing room, or even your terrace, make sure that you lay down the table well and get the setting prepared beforehand to get your guests showering you with compliments.

Also, make sure that you have enough tasting mats and note cards to get your guests to jot down their views.

Pay attention to the glassware

Having the right set of glassware is as important as having whisky itself. Preferably, use tulip-shaped glass tumblers for whisky tasting because such tumblers have the capacity of holding the aroma of whisky for longer periods in comparison to regular glass tumblers.

Also, never use any other material except glass, or you may end up spoiling the authentic flavors of your whisky bottle.


No, here we are not talking about icebreaking the identity of your guests but the whisky that your guests are about to taste. Give a brief introduction about every brand and blend of whisky you give to your guest and also give them a few genuine tips about tasting the same.

Especially for beginners who are about to taste whisky for the first time, make sure to help them in every possible way to ease things out for them.


Whisky tasting not only gets one acquainted with new flavors of whisky but also gets buddies together to enjoy and share their experiences. Such parties bring in a lot of fun and entertainment.

So what are you waiting for? Host a perfect whisky party with the above-mentioned tips and see how your friends have a blast and do not stop praising you for your efforts and thoughtfulness!
