Seven Grand San Diego Whiskey Society: Featuring Johnnie the Scott & Auchentoshan, Mon., April 14th @ 8:30pm

April 10th, 2014 — 12:12pm

Johnny the Scott Vert
I would like to invite you to Seven Grand on Monday the 14th at 8:30pm. This will be the first of a three part session with Johnnie “the Scott” Mundell. Over the next few months Johnnie is going to guide us through several aspects and influences that have inspired and shaped whisky. This first session will last until 8pm and discuss the art of distillation. The distillery we have chosen to illustrate the many facets of distillation is Auchentoshan. This will be a very limited class so I would like to apologize to those who are unable to attend. I would also like to thank all of those who attended the Teeling release party. I need some more corned beef!
