A Season of Sipping and Togetherness

We love doing events for our customers. While we wish we could do more we love to help promote great Whisky events hosted by some of our friends and partners that we believe offer great value and intrigue. This week we’ve got two special events, one hosted by the SoCal Whisky Club and the other by K&L/Wild Turkey, which should not be missed. Next week don’t forget Whisky Live LA, which is easily one of SoCal’s biggest whisky events. The tickets are going for a pretty generous discount for our customers so plan to keep the evening 25th (and preferably the morning/early afternoon of the 26th) open. See you there!

Russell's Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon Seminar & Soirée @The Kimpton Everly Hotel, Hollywood
Wednesday October 17th 2018 6:00-8:00pm

Join us in this incredible evening with Wild Turkey and their exceptional single barrel Russell's Reserve brand. We will evaluate the new K&L exclusive barrels during the event, which will also include food and cocktails provided by the wonderful Ever Bar at the gorgeous new Kimpton property in Hollywood.

Russell's Reserve represent some of the highest quality stocks available anywhere in Kentucky and these barrels are some of the last distilled before the great old distillery was torn down in 2010. This distillery was completed in 1935 - the same year as the famous Stitzel-Weller - and marked the birth of a new whiskey era.

Please note, there are two ticket options available, either for the event only, or the event plus Your ONE bottle of Russell's Reserve Single Barrel K&L Exclusive, which will be available for pick up at the tasting. All participants will have an opportunity to select which barrel they'd like to take home, and to purchase additional bottles from other barrels for pick up or delivery at a later time.

The Everly Hotel is located at 1800 Argyle Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028.

Raasay Distillery:

The Isle of Raasay Distillery began distilling in September 2017. It takes three years of maturation in oak cask before they can legally call the spirit “whisky”. This means they will be bottling the first legal Isle of Raasay Single Malt Scotch Whisky in 2020. All maturation will be carried out on the island in their own warehouse behind the distillery, which will maximise the influence of the variable Hebridean climate on the final single malt whisky. Working with local crofters, they are growing barley in a nearby field, the first time in over 40 years. They intend to expand such collaboration across Raasay, while using local peat to dry the barley to eventually craft a special release of 100% Isle of Raasay single malt.
