Along with a massive rocket we will be showing an incredible line up from Ardbeg:
10yr, Corryvreckan, Uigeadail and… well, you will just have to find out for yourself
If you are not a fan already, it is time to become one. Ardbeg is just so good. Revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all. Yet it does not flaunt the peat; rather it gives way to the natural sweetness of the malt to produce a whisky of perfect balance. Typically most whiskies are chill-filtered and reduced to a strength of 40% ABV. Ardbeg Ten Years Old, however, is non chill-filtered and has a strength of 46% ABV, thus retaining maximum flavour, at the same time giving more body and added depth.
Colonial Spirits is honored to host a presentation from Master of Whiskey, Ross Graham. Ross will present the traditional Scottish and Irish styles of whiskey and explain the differences between the two. Samples of classic whisk(e)ys will be poured and discussed.
The seminar is free, but space is limited so please reserve a place at either 6:00pm or 7:00pm. There will be open tasting and Q&A following each presentation.
I don’t like gin. At least that is what I have been telling people for more than 10 years now. As the spirits buyer for a liquor store it is time to address that conflict of interest.
Gin is a spirit most commonly associated with juniper berries, indeed the name itself, ‘Gin’, is derived from the Dutch ‘jenever’, meaning juniper. The drink has been around for centuries if not millennia and likely began as a form of medicine. Today gin is growing out of its image as a dry, one dimensional, 80 proof alcohol made for either martinis or tonic. I must admit that I have always found that mold a bit boring.
