They suggesting tasting whiskey at a place called Taste The Doom. Frankly I've never heard of it, but its website is interesting looking. Seems they have combined whisky tasting with Doom Metal. Perhaps not to everyone's tastes but I'll leave that to you to decide.
Exberlinner reckons that it:
the bimonthly event held in the back room of Neukölln haunt Das Gift has quickly become the neighbourhood’s hottest ticket, thirstily snatched up by ageing bobo-cores eager to combine their love for loud, soul-crushing music with a burgeoning taste for delightfully peaty, perfectly balanced, 50-bucks-a-bottle single-malt Scotch.The Tea Tasting they suggest looks a lot more civilized. It is at the Tea Salon on Invaliden Strasse (Mitte- while you're there you can pop into Berlin's natural history museum). Anyhow, here is a snippet of what to expect from the Exberlinner site:
Before starting the tasting, Mager goes into detail about the teas she's chosen and the utensils she's using (usually a tea table, wooden tweezers, an array of cups, teapots and spatulas). Then the actual tasting starts: first, the smelling of the dry tea leaves, before the pouring of the hot water (a more complex art than one might imagine) and finally the tasting and discussing of each new brew.There are many more ideas so take a look at the full article for more inspiration.
