K&L Whisky Dinner w/David Stirk - May 20th

Have you ever wanted to meet one of rogue independent bottlers in the Scottish single malt industry? Have you ever wanted to ask questions about how these guys find new barrels, and what they have to do to get them? If so, you should buy a ticket and join us a week from now at Donato in Redwood City when we host David Stirk from the Creative Whisky Company. This should be quite an eventful dinner.

Stirk is a character and this is the first time we've hosted him up North. He's the total opposite of the song and dance, kilt-wearing guy teaching you how to taste and how to nose the glass. He's a no-BS kind of dude, which should make this evening a very interesting one. $50 gets you lots of food and lots of booze.

Don't miss it.

K&L Whisky Dinner w/The Exclusive Malts @ Donato, Tuesday May 20th, 7 PM $50.00 - Come and meet one of the most important partners to the K&L single barrel program: Mr. David Stirk -- the owner of the Creative Whisky Company and the man behind the Exclusive Malt whiskies. We've been working with David and his Glasgow-based label for more than three years now, and his warehouse is always one of the most important stops of our trip. We'll be featuring our new 25 year old Littlemill cask as well as some new selections to arrive at JVS -- the American importer for Mr. Stirk. Rather than talk production, like we feature at most dinners, this is a chance to learn more about the independent barrel trade and what it takes to stay alive in this fierce market. David will be chatting about sourcing new casks, maturation techniques, and a number of other interesting stories concerning the trade. He's a straight-shooter, as well, which should make this one very interesting evening. The tasting will be accompanied, per the usual, by the fantastic cuisine of Donato in Redwood City. NOTE: There are no paper tickets for this event. By purchasing a ticket your name will be placed on a guest list.
