Testimonials

Simon and Franchi were fantastic at providing the whisky tasting at our Burns Night celebration last night! I have had positive feedback pouring in from clients and hosts alike. Not only do they clearly know their stuff, but they made a huge effort to tailor which whisky to taste to the individual based on their likes/dislikes etc. This was a really nice touch and something that we haven’t had before in previous whisky tastings and put Simon and Franchi a head above the rest! We will certainly be using them again next year! Highly recommended.

A huge thank you to Simon and Franchi of Simply Whisky for supplying us with the much needed celtic contingent at our Burns Night Extravaganza. These two are the walking definition of Scottish hospitality and worked their sporrans off, with a well informed and lively whisky masterclass before compering our Burns Supper. Their Selkirk Grace was wonderful and the Ode to a Haggis passionately and hilariously delivered, while their Burns Factor poetry competition had the audience in rapturous applause. They didn’t take a moment to themselves, constantly checking in and entertaining individual tables when not commanding the floor. They were a sheer delight to work with from start to finish; a rare combination of absolute professionalism, mixed with a generous slug of good humour and a sprinkling of roguery.

Simon and Franchi of Simply Whisky provided a bespoke Whisky tasting experience for a corporate event at The Mayfair Hotel. With a selection of Whisky and Port they also included cheese, chutney and chocolate pairings. Both Simon and Franchi were helpful and friendly and my client raved about the high level of service. Guests thoroughly enjoyed the interactive tasting experience and I most definitely will be using Simply Whisky in the future.

The Simply Whisky team was a big hit in our office. Our guide was incredibly passionate and knowledgeable. Some of our employees were not big fans of whisky but thoroughly enjoyed the tasting and learning about the history as well as what foods to pair with what whiskies. The company was professional and friendly from beginning to end, having given us a heads up on what to expect and were timely when it came to sending and receiving the glasses and conducting the tastings. They took care of all of the details. We highly recommend!

Our event needed an added extra element so we hired Simply Whisky and I’m glad we did! The guys are friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the whisky they provide and make the whole experience a lot of fun. Everyone at our event loved having them there and I would be happy to welcome them back anytime.

Thanks again for everything – the experience will be remembered well. All in all, a really great night. We heard many positive comments about the banter and mash-ups from The Whisky Band. The piper was well received, the games were fun and the whisky tasting and mixing was good – clearly a hit! Thanks again for everything and the extra efforts to make it a memorable evening.

The event went great, everyone was super happy and loved the whisky tasting! It’s been great working with you Simon, and Franchi! Hopefully it’s not the last event we will be working on together!

We hired Simply Whisky to do several whisky tastings for guests at our hospitality tent during the Chatsworth International Horse Trials. Simon’s enthusiasm, knowledge, storytelling and personable nature made the tasting a hit with both whisky connoisseurs and novices alike. Thank you Simon!

Thank you for an informative and entertaining evening! I never thought I’d enjoy a blended whisky as much as that!
