Tasting Schedule This Week

Here's what's on tap for this week in the two locations:

Tuesday - Redwood City @ Martin's West 6 PM - Springbank 18 - $6 - ish (final cost TBA) - This is one of Campbeltown's best values, especially when you consider that the 21 year retails for upwards of $600.  One of Scotland's most exciting distilleries and independently owned.  This is essentially mandatory purchase for all those Single Malt obsessed, if no other reason than to gloat about actually tasting one.  Plus it tastes great - classic Campbeltown rusticity balanced by 80% sherry casking. 

Thursday - San Francisco @ Gitane 5:30 PM - Rittenhouse 25 - $9 - ish (final cost TBA) - The oldest and best tasting rye currently available on the market.  Come taste this legendary Heaven Hill whiskey with us for a pretty nice little price.

Between your mentioning them and their appearance on the Chronicle's Bar Stars list I ended up with Gitane on the brain and booked a table for a pre-theater dinner on Thursday. I might be there before the tasting is over... may or may not be in time to take part myself.
