Some very, very big Macallan news!June 17th, 2008
The Macallan and Malt Advocate magazine (creators of WhiskyFest) have teamed up for an unbelievable experience at WhiskyFest San Francisco this October 10th.
Current and past Master Distillers and Managing Directors will each create one unique bottle of Macallan. The contents inside each bottling will be offered one dram at a time to lucky attendees who provide a donation to charity.
Current Master Distiller Bob Dalgarno, past Master Distillers Frank Newlands and Sandy Curle, along with former Managing Director Willie Phillips all will be participating. They will each use their talents to create one bottle of Macallan whisky to their liking and specification. Each will be bottle #1 of only 1, never to be reproduced or replicated ever again.
As Ken Grier, Marketing Director for Macallan described, “This is like Led Zeppelin reforming for one concert. We have never done anything like this before.”
Details are still being worked out, but one thing is for certain: you will want to find a way to get to San Francisco on October 10th for Malt Advocate magazine’s Second Annual WhiskyFest San Francisco. (Go to Malt Advocate magazine’s website, www.maltadvocate.com for more information.)
And there’s one other benefit to attending WhiskyFest San Francisco. Given that it’s only our second event in San Francisco, there will be fewer attendees than WhiskyFest New York or WhiskyFest Chicago. You will have more elbow room. And, of course, there will still be the same amount of great whiskies to sample, as you have come to expect at a Whiskyfest.
