Richard Paterson, the master blender for Whyte and Mackay, is taking to Google+ to host a live whisky tasting session.

Paterson will use the new service’s group video chat feature to get enthusiasts together to “have a dram and talk whisky”.

As Google is not allowing brands to sign up yet, Paterson says he will also be tasting Jura and Dalmore whisky to avoid accusations that he is trying to bend the rules.

The whisky tasting sessions will be held on August 15 and 16 at around 7pm UK time. Those who wish to take part can find out more on the Master Blender blog.
