Cask Trade & Grief Encounter – Charity Clay Pigeon Shoot

Cask Trade & Grief Encounter – Charity Clay Pigeon Shoot

Grief Encounter Event

On Thursday the 30th of September, Cask Trade teamed up with Grief Encounter for their clay pigeon shooting event, donating a prize to their silent auction. Grief Encounter are a wonderful charity who support bereaved children and young people in the UK, with the aim of giving every child and young person access to the best possible support following the death of someone close.

We were proud to donate a Whisky Tasting Experience and look forward to hosting the lucky winner in our Regent St Tasting Room for a Guided Tasting, complete with an exciting selection of whiskies. The event was hosted at a beautiful shooting ground called Holland & Holland in Northwood.

The experience went for a fantastic £1,250 in the auction, which could fund the equivalent of one of the following:

  • 25 hours of 1:1 professional bereavement counselling for grieving children
  • 12 Grief Relief Kits, including Mr Good Grief hand puppet for bereaved families across the UK
  • 8 sessions of Group Therapy for families after a death
  • 2 Family Away Days

Grief Encounter’s counseling services are provided free of charge, funded by the generosity of their supporters, and are here to help alleviate the pain and confusion caused by the death of a parent or sibling. Bereavement is devastating at any age, but for a child it is life-changing.

Whisky Tasting at Tanner De Witt – HK

Whisky Tasting at Tanner De Witt – HK

 

Last week Cask Trade HK hosted a fantastic and insightful whisky tasting event at Tanner De Witt.

Sales Director John Wong and Exec Alan NG were in their element as they delved deep into the whiskies’ histories and presented their knowledge on a variety of Speyside expressions, explaining to guests the joys and opportunities of cask ownership. Attendees were treated to some delicious drinks, including the ‘Talisker with a twist Highball’ and drams of ‘Ancient’ and ‘Modern’ Talisker.

A pair of delightful cask samples drawn from 2008 Glen Moray and Linkwood casks, followed by a classic eight-year-old Glen Moray bottled in the 1990s. A 1994 Secret Speyside matured in a sherry puncheon was the last dram featured in the tantalising tasting line-up.

Following the success of the event there is already talk of another one due to popular request, so watch this space…
