The Science of Whisky

About The Science of Whisky

Join us at Glasgow Science Centre for a special masterclass on the science of whisky to celebrate Burns Night. We're teaming up with those whisky aficionados at the Good Spirits Company, who will guide you through six different and amazing whiskies over the course of the evening, while astronomers from Glasgow Science Centre talk about the science inside the glass.

You'll end the evening with the final dram of the night tasted under the glittering stars of the Planetarium, where you'll be flown into space to explore clouds of interstellar alcohol and discover how everything in your glass came to be, forged in the heart of a dying star.

This event is for over-18s only. If you're lucky enough to look under the age of 25 we'll ask you for ID when you arrive, so please bring some with you to avoid disappointment.

We will be serving Burns-inspired canapes, so please let us know if you are a carnivore or a herbivore by selecting the appropriate ticket. If you have any questions about the food being served or for special dietary requirements please contact us at call.centre@glasgowsciencecentre.org

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Science of Whisky are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
