Pete Goss hosting events with Talisker whisky to raise money for the RNLI
Pete Goss has teamed up with Talisker Single Malt Scotch whisky to raise money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), the charity that saves lives at sea. Goss will be participating in a series of events called ‘Talisker Tales’ at sailing clubs across the UK. He will be joined by crew members from the RNLI to tell their tales from the sea. All funds raised on the evening will go directly to the RNLI.
‘Talisker Tales’ is part of a formal partnership between Talisker and the RNLI recently announced at the London Boat Show. The ‘Talisker Tales’ events will be small and intimate as the audience will be invited to gather round with a dram of whisky and share their tales. People will also have the opportunity to expand their whisky knowledge with a tasting of Talisker, including the World’s Best Single Malt – Talisker 18yr old . The audience will be guided through the sea-like properties of Talisker which is distilled on the shoreline of the Isle of Skye.
Pete Goss said: “Talisker Tales is a wonderful opportunity to support the RNLI. I have first hand experience of the RNLI as I was once rescued off the coast of the Scilly Isles whilst aboard Team Phillips, but if you want to hear more you’ll have to come to one of the Talisker Tales evenings.”
The first ‘Talisker Tales’ event took place at the Little Ship Club, London (18th April). Further events are to be held at the Royal Motor Yacht Club, Poole (2nd May) and the Talisker distillery on Skye following the Oban to Talisker leg of the Classic Malts Cruise (17th July).
