Re: whisky stramash
Just a quick update of what's happening at this year's Stramash:
Confirmed so far, is:
Glenfiddich Warehouse 47
The Cocktail Pod
Dewar's Barber Surgeon
The Jura Murder Mystery
The Balvenie Brand Ambassadors
Glen Moray, Surgeons' Hall's own whisky, Dancing Stag Single Bottlings, along with the already announced; Black Bottle, Bunnahabhain, Glenfiddich, The Balvenie, Brewdog Beer , Dancing Stag Single Bottlings, Ledaig, Tobermory, Fettercairns, Dalmore, Jura, Whyte and Mackay, Isle of Mull, Dewars, Aberfeldy, The Finniestone, Springbank, Longrow, Deanston and Arran
Glenfiddich Warehouse 47 will tease all five senses by immersing small groups in an atmospheric room where guests will be taken on a pioneering virtual tour of the Glenfiddich Distillery stillhouse, cooperage and warehouses.
Hosted by Glenfiddich Ambassador, Jamie Milne, the experience will also feature whisky barrels, aroma samples, photographs and advertising images from Glenfiddich's past and present, as well as a chance to try your hand at making a whisky barrel. The whole experience will really bring a tasting of Glenfiddich 12, 15 and 18 year old whiskies to life.
Multi-award winning mixologist Jon O'Connor will be on-hand to create bespoke whisky cocktails at The Cocktail Pod. Visitors will help the bartender choose from an amazing array of ingredients to create their perfect cocktail and they will receive a copy of their recipe so they can recreate it at home.
The Molecular Experiments will focus on whisky in different and unusual ways including: whisky caviar, a range of gourmet infused whisky and smoking unpeated whisky by Stramash's very own Heston Blumenthal-esque chemist.
A Sweeney Todd-style bladed barber surgeon, in partnership with Dewar's Blended Whisky, will offer those brave enough to volunteer procedures of the follicle kind.
Jura Single Malt Scotch Whisky is sponsoring the Murder Mystery, which will entice and entertain. The classic whodunit will give one lucky visitor the chance to win a once in a lifetime trip to Jura, including a special distillery tour, if the cunning culprit is guessed correctly.
The Balvenie's crack team of top brand ambassadors will enlighten dram enthusiasts about the craftsmanship behind the nation's top tipple. This captivating tour around the show will ensure an exciting and engaging learning experience, guiding visitors through an exploration of all things whisky.
The Stramash will be held on three sessions over the 26th and 27th of May 2012:
Saturday 26th of May 2012: 12pm - 4pm and 5pm - 9pm and Sunday 27th of May 2012: 1pm - 5pm.
Hope to see a few of you there!
