Whisky starts its life after distillation as a clear spirit that has more in common with vodka than a bottled whisky. But this new make spirit is crucial to defining the final character of your dram – discover why with Dave Broom at Whisky Show.

What gives whisky its character? While most of the time the focus is on the casks it is aged in, it's the new make spirit that's matured in them that starts the whole process.
In this masterclass whisky writer Dave Broom will break down the factors that give new make its flavour and compare four new make spirits to the whiskies that they will eventually become.
We'll be trying four whiskies and four new make samples sourced specially for the class. It's an excellent opportunity to find out why your favourite whiskies taste how they do.
This is a class for those who want to delve deeper into the world of flavour and do so with someone who has one of the best palates in the whisky industry.
Please note: you must have a valid ticket to Whisky Show on Saturday 28 September to attend this masterclass.
