This year Glenfarclas is celebrating its 175th anniversary. For the occasion, we've invited George Grant, director of sales for this Icon of Whisky, to host a whisky dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse on Monday, March 14th. Glenfarclas is one of the last family-owned distilleries in Scotland, going strong for six generations, and we'’re honored to have a member of the family celebrate this momentous achievment with us. We'’ll honor this occasion by tasting some 235 years worth of whisky; what a country! Those lucky enough to attend will be treated to a three-course dinner, end up with a bottle of the Glenfarclas 17 Y.O. signed by Mr. Grant, and will likely hear some great stories. Seating is very limited! Those interested should contact us ASAP (617-367-8605) to reserve a spot. This opportunity is not to be missed; if you've any interest in attending don't hesitate to reserve your place with us that evening or you'’ll surely regret it.
The event will start at 7:30PM at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Boston (45 School St., between Park Street and State Street).
We’'ll taste the following whiskies:
Glenfarclas 1953 45.8% This 54 Y.O. has elegance and finesse. Just precious!!!
Glenfarclas 40 Y.O. 46% Single Malt Scotch Whisky of The Year 2010 from Malt Advocate!!!!
Glenfarclas 1968 35 Y.O. 43% This was Import Whisky of The Year in Malt Advocate a few years back!! Long sold out!!
Glenfarclas 1974 31 Y.O. Cask Strength 57.4% George Grant said this was bottled because I was hounding him for an older cask strength of some 30+ years.
