Glenfiddich lovers can have an once-in-a-lifetime experience not too far from home.
Glenfiddich, which is known as one of Scotland’s most distinguished distilleries, is releasing 50 bottles of its 50-year-old single-malt Scotch. Only six bottles are in the United States and only two of those bottles are in Texas.
One of San Antonio’s premier mixology establishments, 1919, is presenting a tasting that connoisseurs could only dream of.
Don Marsh, owner of 1919 said, “Glenfiddich 50-Year-Old is a prized possession. To have one of only two bottles in Texas exemplifies the world-class standard and unique opportunities that 1919 provides for our guests.”
Glenfiddich Ambassador David Allardice, a native Scotsman who grew up a long stone’s throw away from the Glenfiddich distillery, is hosting the evening. He will share his passion and expertise about the most awarded single-malt whisky and the prized dram.
In a press release Allardice explained, “This whisky is the jewel in Glenfiddich’s crown and amongst the most valuable whiskies ever released. Time and tradition have contributed to making every drop of this beautifully matured whisky some of the most precious Glenfiddich has to offer.”
The unforgettable evening also includes five other collectible single malts, such as the Glenfiddich 30-Year-Old and 1974 Vintage, and an exquisite five-course meal crafted by Executive Chef Stefan Bowers of Feast.
The limited edition bottle, which retails between $25,000 and $27,000, will be available to taste for $1,500 per person.
The location of the tasting is 1919, 1420 South Alamo, San Antonio, Texas 78204. Reservations are required. Call 210-227-1420.
This experience is worth the trip to San Antonio.
