About the {{offerTypeLabel(offer)}}

This event is part of the 2018 Bristol Food Connections festival – a citywide celebration of the fantastic, varied and delicious food culture in our city. From the 11th - 17th June, BFC will shine a light on the diverse people, businesses and organisations that make our city's food culture so incredible. Head to the festival and embark upon a voyage of discovery and exploration, learning about all aspects of the journey of food – from field to fork.

Whisky and the Senses, with Rachel McCormack and Professors Barry Smith and Charles Spence. Daughter of a Macallan drinker, Radio 4's Rachel McCormack had a rude awakening in a Glasgow pub at 17 years old after asking for the house whisky and discovering that not all whiskies were the same. Her father maintains that he ruined her taste buds with quality malt from far too young an age. She would like to think he gave them a crash course in discernment! 

Rachel's book Chasing the Dram: Finding the Spirit of Whisky was published in 2017. In this interactive tasting event, Rachel is joined by Professor Barry Smith, researcher into taste, smell and the multisensory perception of flavour and Founding Director of the Centre for the Study of the Senses at the University of London's Institute of Philosophy; and Charles Spence, Professor of Experimental Psychology and author of Gastrophysics: The New Science of Eating. 

Together, they will take you on a journey of discovery of how whisky is produced; the physical and psychological factors that affect its taste; and why you like some whiskies but loathe others.
