Whisky Dinner Seminar
at the SF City Club
Thursday March 29, 2012 6:00 PM
RESERVATIONS REQUIRED: firstname.lastname@example.org
Featuring Isle of Arran (Euan Mitchell) and Kilchoman (Anthony Wills)
The evening will indulge your senses with Whisky expertly paired with gourmet hors d'oeuvres. Enjoy and experience these small independent distilleries through the men who make them possible as we take an educational journey on how these fascinating spirits are created.
About Isle of Arran:
One of the few remaining independent distilleries. Built in 1995 on Arran for the following reasons:
- They had found the purest water supply in all of Scotland at Loch na Davie, high in the hills that overlook the village of Lochranza on the North coast of Arran.
- Arran is washed by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream and enjoys a microclimate - ideal for the speedy maturation of single malt whiskies.
- The Island already enjoyed a reputation for producing top quality - if illegal - whisky.
Anthony Wills decided to build a brand new distillery on the isle of Islay. The first distillery built on Islay in 124 years. Kilchoman is a new distillery that it is all about bringing new ideas. It is a farm distillery that does everything itself from growing the barley to its own floor maltings. Anthony doesn’t seem concerned with profits and production as much as doing things correctly. Their first release after three years was an incredible whisky that most connoisseurs would not recognize as a young whisky.
