Lee Baker MACALONEY’S CALEDONIAN DISTILLERY’s Scotch specialist
Join Joel Virginillo PMAs Scotch specialist on an exploration through the hand crafted arts used in the production of this small yet iconic distillery. The Balvenie is known for its eclectic cask finishing and is one of the few distilleries left utilizing its own working malting floor, cooperage and copper smithing. Taste your way through the progression of cask influences and enjoy a few very rare drams!
MACALONEY’S CALEDONIAN DISTILLERY:
This Whiskymakers Masterclass includes the inaugural release of one of Canada’s finest, internationally award-winning, single malt whiskies. Comprising five (5) whiskies, Lee Baker will pour two of Macaloney’s Caledonian Distillery single malts (Glenloy Premium and Peated Mac na Braiche) and a Macaloney’s triple-distilled potstill dram. The new-make underpinning these won the prestigious World Whiskies Awards best new-make in Canada and top 2 on the planet. Lee will also give insight into how their Macaloney's Twa Cask Highland and Islay Scotches
were constructed through vatting and finishing to create 89 & 93 score whiskies, with the Islay also landing in the top 3 at the 2019 World Whiskies Awards!
Then join the Main Event at 7:00pm!
You can only go to one Master Class, and will be directed at the front of house to your private tasting. Be sure to book your tickets for the Wee Tipple Party as well!
