Scotch whisky may be easy on the tongue, but their Gaelic names can be a challenge! Come along to the Language of Scotch workshop and learn the foundations of the Gaelic language – through a whisky perspective.
We’ll explore the linguistic background of place names and how to pronounce the Gaelic names of distilleries. Using the Gaelic flavour wheel specially created by Rachel MacNeill, sample three single malts and learn how to talk about aroma notes in Gaelic.
Walk away with a foundational knowledge of the language of Scotch and how to apply it to whiskies like “Bunnahabhain Stiuireadair” and “Ardbeg Uigeadail”!
Gaelic Language rhythms and patterns paired with perfect drams.
No prior knowledge of Gaelic necessary – this workshop is welcome to all whisky enthusiasts.
