Grain juice in Covent Garden

Soft-open in Covent Garden (proper opening's Friday), this month-long Balvenie pop-up will constantly evolve, with everything from the lights to the bar to the walls handmade on-site from old whiskey barrels in order to create the sense that you're actually inside one. Programs will involve furniture-building workshops, a whole ton of grain and peat shipped in to demonstrate the making process, an open bar, a chance to blend your own malt from fully loaded casks, and, going far beyond "make sure it actually hits your tongue on the way down", master classes on whiskey tasting.
