Expand your single malt whisky world with a tasting event of two of the most impressive single-malt scotches in existence, Dalmore and Jura.
Jura was first established in 1810 on the Isle of Jura (which still boasts one road, one pub and one distillery), and Dalmore, which has been actively producing to worldwide acclaim since 1839.
Enjoy hors d’oeuvres and desserts, specifically paired to a number of the evening’s single malt tastings. Tickets are just $35 and include five tastings (including Dalmore’s King Alexander III).
About our Whisky Ambassador
Craig Bridger is our Single Malt Specialist with Whyte and Mackay. He is a veteran whisky educator and ambassador who has visited distilleries all over the world, and worked with some of the most famous names in Single Malt Scotch.
He is proud to represent Whyte and Mackay’s elite portfolio of whiskies—which include The Dalmore and Jura—for the Western United States, working closely with legendary Master Distiller Richard Paterson. On April 25th he will be hosting an exclusive in-depth tasting of The Dalmore and Jura Single Malt Scotch Whiskies. He has selected several expressions from each distillery including the Jura Seven Wood, Jura 18 year, The Dalmore 15 year, The Dalmore 18 year, and finishing with The Dalmore King Alexander III paired with a dessert.
Jura Single Malt Scotch Whisky distinguishes itself from other Single Malts through its remote location, unique distilling calendar, and its wood maturation. Jura is a small island that sits between Islay and Scotland with only one distillery on it. Jura uses both peated and unpeated whiskies for a slightly smoky taste. Jura is matured in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels and each expression is then finished in carefully selected European Casks to add depth and complexity.
The Dalmore distillery is considered one of the Iconic Single Malt Scotches of today, in part by its unique stillhouse, Cask Selection, and maintaining some of the oldest and rarest stocks in the world. The distillery has eight unique and individual stills. The varied shapes and sizes produce a distinctly complex new make spirit – with both bold, robust character and delicate, citrus notes – perfect for maturation in The Dalmore’s carefully selected casks.
The Dalmore sources its sherry casks directly from Jerez’s most prestigious sherry bodega, Gonzalez Byass, and enjoys exclusive access to casks used to create some of the most distinguished wine labels in Spain, impossible for any other distillery to procure. The Dalmore established luxury whisky in the 1800s by releasing one of the first 12-year aged single malts. The Dalmore continues to define luxury whisky by maintaining some of the oldest and rarest stocks in the world.
