Let’s go to Islay! Journey with us to the enchanting Scottish island home to Bowmore Single Malt Scotch Whisky without ever leaving the fine city of New Orleans. Let us take you on a SENSORIAL journey to an island far, far away.

SEE the visceral changes a drop or two (or more) of water does to whisky, TASTE the difference and HEAR Camper English lead you through the tasting.

SMELL the peat smoke that gently dries Bowmore’s malted barley.

TASTE Bowmore! And freshly shucked oysters by New Orleans famous oyster man, Sal Sunseri from P&J Oyster Company. Do your first Bowmore Oyster Luge.

FEEL the glass in your hand as you are led on a blindfolded tasting by Morrison Bowmore’s Master of Malts Iain McCallum.

HEAR the heart-pounding Islay waves crashing on the Bowmore distillery walls.

And all the while you get to indulge in Arnaud’s delicious food and the intoxicatingly smoky and balanced spirit from Islay’s first distillery: Bowmore 12 Years Old, 15 Years Old “Darkest”, 18 Years Old, Dorus Mor and maybe a few surprises from the No. 1 Vaults.

Leave your inhibitions at home and experience The Taste of Islay.
