Whisky aficionados - have we got one for you. Next door to the Jewellery Quarter Museum, you’ll find an absolute treasure trove of whisky. The Birmingham Whisky Club is home to over 350 whiskies from big distilleries and independent makers across the globe, making it a must visit destination for anyone who already has an appreciation or is interested in learning more. Their collection includes Scotch, Irish, Japanese, Blended and rare gems from smaller whisky producers based all over the world. The seemingly endless selection of high-quality whiskies is sure to include a sample of something love, as well as the option to discover, new, harder to find bottles. Seriously, you’re going to dig it.
Whilst The Birmingham Whisky Club has a loyal following from die-hard whisky fans, the team are motivated by the ethos that whisky is, and should be, accessible to everyone. Their curated tasting flights create an opportunity for anyone curious about whisky to explore a whole range of flavour notes and styles. Their team are on hand to help you through the tastes, what you can expect and why the process behind making each whisky impacts the finished product. Who knows, you may end up leaving with a new favourite drink.
They knock out some cracking cocktails too, reinventing old classics with their stash of whiskies and other high-end spirits. We’re talking classic favourites like the Whisky Club Old Fashioned or a Whiskey Sour as well as a stellar Jameson Espresso Martini. With Joey Beardsmore leading the bar, with a history of exquisite and creative bartending you’re bound to find something great. They already have some excellent fruity twists like our personal pick the “Rosehip Boulevardier” (made with Glenfiddich 12yo, Sacred Rosehip vermouth, Campari and rose sugar).
It’s not hard to see why The Birmingham Whisky Club has been so well received here in Birmingham. The dedication and passion showcased by the team paired with the sheer quality of drinks on offer makes this venue a unique experience. With accessibility and the sharing of knowledge a key part of The Birmingham Whisky Club’s agenda, it’s no wonder that it’s converting so many more people to the world of whisky.
