Our local Malt Whisky specialists at The Jar in Troon are once again organising a whisky tasting event in aid of the RNLI.
The tasting will be held on Friday 17th of May at 7.30pm at the South Beach Hotel, Troon and the evening will begin with a welcome dram of Loch Lomond Single Grain. The tasting will include six single malt whiskies from six different distilleries.
Tickets are £35 per person & must be purchased in advance from The Jar (33 Ayr Street, Troon) or by visiting https://www.glasgowmaltwhiskycompany.com/tasting-events/
All ticket money will go directly towards the training and operational costs at Troon RNLI lifeboat station. We do expect demand to be high for this event so please book early to avoid disappointment.
