Milroys, the Whisky specialists originally of Soho, have launched a series of combined whisky tasting and comedy nights at their new Spitalfields site. The events include a night of comedy alongside three drams and three highballs from some of their most-loved distilleries, to be enjoyed together with the bar’s record-breaking selection of whisky and a menu of bar snacks from The Ingredientist.

March’s event will honour International Women’s Day in the form of a Straight Up & Funny (Honey) Comedy Night with Aberfeldy Whisky. A whisky that is honeyed and sweet in taste, known as the golden dram, a whisky that is a classic dram with complexity yet still approachable. The event on 4 March will champion ‘women in Whisky’ being an inclusive event and open to everyone. Stereotypes to be left outside.

The acts for the March evening are Catherine Bohart (recognisable from E4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats, BBC’s The Mash Report), her partner Sarah Keyworth (known from being a nominee of Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, ITV 2’s Stand Up Sketch Show, Comedy Central’s Roast Battle) and Thanyia Moore (Funny Women Award Winner).
