About Us

Dusty; Covered in dust or slightly grey in colour.

Welcome to 'The Dusties' Whisky Club, the home of extraordinary whisky tastings in Bristol and online.


We aim to introduce like minded whisky lovers to some of the rarer whiskies out there. Expect to see old bottles rescued from forgotten cupboards, limited editions long gone, sold out small batches, festival bottlings and distillery samples that probably shouldn't have left the warehouse!


Upcoming Events

Here is a list of all the upcoming Dusties tastings and events. We try and host an event every other month and they generally sell out quite quickly!  As our events are break even there is a very limited number of tickets available so don't snooze or you may miss out!

About Dan

Dan Bovey has been in the bar industry for over 19 years, most recently making his mark as the Beverage Manager for Hyde & Co Group. 


His love affair with whisky came via a chance visit to the Dalwhinnie Distillery in 2007, after working an event in the area. Since then he's visited distilleries all over the world from Canada to Guyana, Cuba to Iceland.  However it's Scotland that keeps drawing him in. So much so that he's been back every year to explore different areas, more likely than not with his wife Ash, who's also whisky mad.
