A special whiskey menu is available throughout the month as well as the Night of Whiskies on Thursday 14 July, a ticketed event where The Glenmore’s middle level will become whiskey central with local and international tastings, meet the makers, cocktail masterclasses, and canapes matched with whiskey.

Each room of The Glenmore’s middle level will host a different whiskey activation on the night.
