Come and join us and perhaps you will discover why Glenfiddich is the world's best-selling single-malt whisky and the most awarded at the International Spirits Challenge. Explore a range of whiskies selected by your guide for the evening, Brian Kinsman, none other than the Malt Master for Glenfiddich and Master Blender for William Grant & Sons himself.
Enjoy an evening with our guest speakers Craig Mathieson and Jake. Founder of The Polar Academy charity, Craig is renowned as Scotland’s greatest living explorer who, in 2013, was named Scotland’s first Explorer in Residence in 129 years by the Royal Scottish Geographic Society. A commendable motivational speaker he now spends most of his time inspiring and transforming the lives of children through arctic exploration. Jake is one of the pupils who travelled with Craig on the 2019 expedition and who featured in the hair-raising BBC documentary Arctic Academy.
This evening is dedicated to the exploits of his young explorer cadets and helping to fundraise for the pupils from Bell Baxter High School, Fife, who will be setting off in April on their 2020 Arctic Expedition.
Craig Mathieson and Jake will give you a wee introduction to the Polar Academy charity.
Whisky Tasting Experience:
Brian Kinsman will introduce six samples of Glenfiddich whiskies and explain what makes them so special. Following this you will have an opportunity to ask the malt master about Glenfiddich.
A wee auction will be held after the whisky tasting experience in which a rare, single cask bottle of Craig Mathieson's Polar Explorer whisky - containing blue glacier ice water from Greenland - will be up for grabs. The auction will also feature donations from distilleries including Highland Park, Kingsbarns, Lindores Abbey and Glenmorangie, and signed golfing celebrity items.
Follow us on twitter, @BBPolarAcademy, where we will keep you posted with our auction donations, event information and, of course, how the kids are getting on with their training!
