Välkommen! Welcome!

Moa is a quirky, adventurous and knowledge thirsty Swede who ended up living in Edinburgh after falling in love with Auld Reekie, a scotsman and whisky.

After working with whisky tastings and undertaking several drinks related courses and trainings she has now started up her own tastings with focus on being friendly, quirky and educational.

Moa is available for freelance projects involving everything from tastings, social media and blog related content to training events and whisky reviews.

Get in touch at swedishwhiskygirl@gmail.com for more information or/and enquiries. 

For private whisky tastings in Edinburgh see more information below.

NEWS: We can now also offer Virtual Tastings where you'll receive a tasting pack in the mail and enjoy your tasting from the comfort of your own home via video call. We have of course also taken measures to ensure that the whisky will be handled in a safe and secure way. 

Get in touch for further information.
