To celebrate their listing in The Whisky Shop, the UK’s largest specialist whisky chain, Compass Box are attempting to set a whisky tasting world record and raise money for charity.

The whisky makers plan to hold 8 different tastings, in 8 different shops, in 8 different cities – from Inverness to Brighton – all in the one day!

Compass Box founder John Glaser will be joined by whisky expert Dominic Roskrow on 15 June on this venture, commencing at one minute past midnight in Inverness and finishing in Brighton at 11.30pm the same day.

The Whisky Shop’s Managing Director, Andrew Torrance, said on their blog: ‘We are delighted to list the Compass Box range in our stores from Spring this year. When we were discussing a launch plan we thought the best way to bring the magic of these whiskies to our consumers was of course to let them taste the product. What better way to do that than in one day!

“Inverness to Brighton in one day. I’m really looking forward to it and I know our customers will get right behind the challenge. Like all the best ideas, it was hatched over a good dinner and a glass of whisky.’
