One of the most interesting thing that I do as brand influencer is to create my own blend whisky. The campaign has been offer by Chivas Regal to promote his workshop to The Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, I had to take part at the masterclass, post on Instagram a picture of the event with the right hashtag so earn 40£.
I had my private free ticket, otherwise it was cost 15£. After a warm welcome with a free drink made it by expert on whisky barman which wore an artisan leather apron, we were invited to get on the class to the mezzanine. The room was on 5 row of 7 place desk provided with bottles with different taste of wisky and a notebook. As instagrammer I had my sit on the first raw so I could capture best pictures of the event.
On stage a Master Blenders told us where the blends come from, taught us how to taste and smell the differents sort of whisky and instruct us how to blend our favoutite blend made by us on the way that we liked.
I mixed 3 quality base wisky with a peak of a very strong “highland” and a bit of smokey base whisky. The taste was the best taste which I never had in my life but as we can say in Italy: “every coackroach is beautiful for his mum”.
Sincerly I can tell you that I got out the event inebriate by all the taste of whisky, and I can’t remember in properly how to make a new blend once more.
But I have my 50ml own blend.
It will be opened to my next date, if I will be lucky to have one!
