January Library Lunch
Starter and main course, with Scottish theme, for January.
Faffless Whisky Tasting
Craig Thom recently set up Faffless and ran a successful whisky festival in the Tunnels as well as tastings in Food Story and Slains. We have managed to persuade him to come to the library to share some amazing whiskies with our members and their guests.
His tastings lean more on the entertainment side of things rather than boring people to death with facts about whisky. As an independent whisky chap, Craig can ensure people learn a lot about the whisky and the industry as well without any bias to a particular distillery. You can also ask as many questions as you want about the whisky world, from whisky recommendations all the way to investment advice on whisky.

An Evening with the Travelling Cooper
The craft of coopering goes back thousands of years and is soaked in tradition where knowledge and a high level of skills are required.
Duncan, a Journeyman Cooper, is passionate about his trade and through his demonstration will unlock the mysteries of how a cask is formed from oak tree to the dram. Explaining the magic of how compounds are released from the wood to produce flavours and colours will provide an insight to the special qualities the cask performs.
The art of raising and repairing a cask will be a main feature of the demo where using traditional tools will demonstrate that methods handed down over centuries are still as relevant today as they were from those early years.
