Description

From Speyside to Wick, an adventure in Whisky

Speyburn

WHAT: An informational guided tasting of SIX whiskies from the Speyburn and Old Pultney distilleries lead by North American Brand Education Manager Steph Ridgway

WHEN: #WhiskyWeek Special Event! Wednesday, October 4th, 5pm-7pm

WHERE: Elixir, 3200 16th St. San Francisco

Join North American Brand Education Manager for a sampling of two of Scotland’s most award winning single malts: Speyburn and Old Pulteney. Listen and sip as she guides you through a tasting of featured expressions from each of these distilleries and discover how terroir plays a large part in the final product. Hot off a working trip to Scotland, Steph had the chance to spend time working in these distilleries, actually making the whisky and getting to know the men behind the magic so she’s got some great stories to share along with a few special treats that she brought back to share.
