Meet The Distillery And The Man Behind It – Thursday May 26th

What an event I have planned for you!

Meet The Distillery And The Man Behind It

Thursday May 26th at Black Book


If you’ve wanted to visit a distillery but never found the time, you dread the thought of the travel, or you actually want to hear from a whisky maker, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE.

I give you distillery owner, Max Vaughan! His passion and drive is inspirational.

Then there’s the whisky and the story… You may well not have tried their 1st release. That could be because it sold out everywhere within days. The 2nd release was gone in 10mins online!!

Their passion doesn’t stop at whisky. “Meet the Distillery” means we will travel through their range of drinks – gin and rum as well as whisky, plus a cocktail and food😋


The Venue:

In the heart of London’s Soho, there was a private members’ club for the Drinks Industry, known for its Black Book of special drinks. The Club has gone, but the Black Book remains. It’s no longer a members’ club, but, not only has the venue taken on the name of the prestigious book, they have kept The Black Book going 😊

Black Book, 23 Frith Street, London, W1D 4RR opposite and across from Ronnie Scott’s


The Tasting:

  • A welcome cocktail – made with gin
  • A glass of wine – all will be explained
  • The man behind the distillery – Max Vaughan will lead your tasting
  • After the tasting – dinner – steak and chips, followed by petit fours


The Distillery – White Peak:

Uncompromising in their approach to product quality, WPD has a strong sense of place & flavour and what it means to be making whisky in Derbyshire. They’re doing something different but not just for the sake of it and take a long-term view of every aspect of the business.



The Man Behind The Distillery – Max Vaughan:

In mid-2016, Max and Claire, his wife and co-founder had no premises, no partners or staff, no permits or consents, nowhere near enough funding, and no track record in the drinks & spirits industry. Yet White Peak Distillery is producing fantastic whisky that went on sale for the first time in early 2022 and was rapidly snatched up, with the second release gone online in 10min.

Meet the man who made it happen as he leads you through the tasting.
