whisky tasting Stag Party in prague
If you're fans of the old amber nectar then this is the perfect chance to sample five superb and varied tipples. You'll be led by our local guide who will be without you throughout the session.
The activity takes place in a popular bar in the heart of the city centre and Prague Old Town. Each sample will be 2cl and the whole session accompanied by local bar snacks such as;
- Fried mozzarella
- Roast beef
- Grilled eggplant with blue cheese
It's fair to say stag parties are known to enjoy the odd drink and if the groom and his friends are fans of whiskey then this is a great activity to broaden their taste horizons.
