The month that was
With tasting events, whisky shows, colourful Indian festivals, Easter, etc., March was a busy month. For those who missed out on the action here’s a quick recap of the month that was.
We started the month with a successful showing at ‘Spirits of Scotland’. This was our second time at this prestigious festival at Salone dele Fonatane, Rome. Cask #2102 was entered into blind tasting competitions and was crowned ‘Best Malt’ in the ‘Rest of the World’ category. We also conducted a masterclass for a niche audience. The story behind each dram enchanted everyone. But the highlight was when ‘Professor’ Jerry Thomas, one of the best bartenders in the world, whipped up cocktails with our whiskies.
And then came Whisky Live, London. Two whole days of great food, cocktails and amazing pairing left the guests wanting more. Salt Bar, our cocktail partner, created some interesting concoctions like Paul John Lemon Chai and Paul John Bold & Fig Sour. The festival also saw very interesting pairing ideas by Ms. Seanee Sullivan, a restaurant owner from Dublin. Our guests loved them all, and enjoyed the masterclass even more.
While these events were a huge success for The Great Indian Single Malt, we enjoyed ourselves even more during the festival of colours, Holi. As India got dabbed in colours, we sat back and enjoyed the show with our favourite Single Malts. But the celebrations didn’t end there. Right after Holi was Easter. A long, lazy brunch at Palm Meadows in Bangalore was just what we needed. Guests were treated to a wonderful meal, paired with the right Single Malts.
Our story was covered by the Asian Wealth Magazine, a renowned luxury business magazine for Asian entrepreneurs. You can read it here.
Those were the highlights of March. We have a lot in store for this month. Keep in touch and we’ll share our experiences with you.
