Charity Event: Malts & Cocktails Soirée

In the aftermath of the 2011 Edinburgh Marathon, Scotch Malt Whisky Society Ambassador Craig Johnstone & Maxxium UK Mixologist Patsy Christie cordially invite you to a Malts & Cocktails Soirée, the third episode.

A charitable evening of enchanting narratives, captivating demonstrations and talented live music to accompany tongue-tantalizing libations and lip-smackingly good gastronomic dishes.


Craig will captivate with his famously anecdotal guided tastings of three rare and luxurious Scotch malt whiskies, including a world-wide first from the private cabinet of a celebrated Whisky Maker, that will reignite each gentleman’s spirit.

Patsy will mesmerize with her renowned, passionate Mixology demonstrations of three gourmet cocktails sure to appease every ladies’ taste buds.


All will enjoy a scrumptious three course meal prepared by the gifted Chefs of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society, Queen Street; to an interlude of live musical stylings. We’re pleased to welcome back ROBIN LAING, the Whisky Bard and one of Scotland’s premier singer-songwriters (; and add to the line up celebrated international Harpist SHARRON GRIFFITHS (
