A Journey with Taste - take the journey at Ledgowan

'Journey With Taste’ caters for a broad spectrum of entertainment events from the intimate close gathering of friends, visitors from both near and far, to corporate/business functions, with emphasis on an appreciation of Malt Scotch Whisky.

The event offers an experience of new tastes and flavours of Malt Scotch Whisky and food products that are made solely in Scotland. The event will be set in the warm, pleasant atmosphere of the Ledgowan Lodge Hotel, enabling individuals to share the; ‘Journey’ and be comfortable in close proximity to each other reflecting an ambience of comfort. What makes this product different from others on the market is that you will learn from your own tastes and experiences.

This ‘Journey’ will not be about what others think and say of Malt Scotch Whisky but about your feelings, thoughts and tastes. There are no ‘wrongs’ when taking this journey, as diverse and varying opinions may be offered by everyone taking part. The emphasis is for the participant to own and enjoy this experience as it must be about what is ‘right’ for them when nosing and tasting Malt Scotch Whisky. It will also give an opportunity to sample Scottish Fayre that is not always readily available in supermarkets. Journey With Taste’ introduces unique Scottish food products between the tasting of each Scotch Malt Whisky.

This serves two purposes, firstly to clean the palate before tasting the next Scotch Malt Whisky and secondly to give an insight to the fabulous range of food products available. Emphasis will be on the participant’s enjoyment, primarily of the Malt Scotch Whisky however the raising of awareness of the differing flavours of all Scottish Fayre throughout the Journey will also be encouraged. Everyone will have the opportunity to share and discuss his or her own individual experience with others.

Guests will be able to enter comments into an individual logbook that is provided for the purpose of the ‘Journey’. This will be theirs to keep for future reference and as a souvenir of the evening.

This journey is available for small groups - minimum 15 people.

If you are interested in booking a 'journey' call us - these events can be made available as pre or post dinner, afternoon or evening events. Combine your journey with an overnight/weekend stay at the hotel. DB&B packages including this event are available upon request.

A short history of Ledgowan Lodge Hotel

The hotel was originally built as a private shooting lodge in 1904, for a Major Ross as part of his 8,500 acre Ledgowan estate. It took six years to complete, being virtually 'hand' built. However, due to the high costs involved in running the estate it was sold to Lord Latymer of Coutts Bank, London. It remained in the family until the second World War, when the army used it as a barracks for their officers, but keeping it in top class condition. After the war Ledgowan remained empty for around 15 years. It was then discreetly converted into a country house hotel, and separated from the estate, although retaining most of its original charm and character.
