Meet the Blender 2: Opening 2019 with a Blast
For our first event this 2019, we invited Kavalan’s Master Blender Ian Chang We had a similar event last year that got sold out fast so we brought it back due to popular demand. Just in case you weren’t able to attend, here are the event highlights last January 18!for Meet the Blender 2, an exclusive whisky tasting event and Masterclass for Singlemalt VIPs, Platinum, and Diamond members.
Meet the Blender 2 was held at The Brewery at The Palace, The Fort BGC where we prepared lots of Kavalan whisky for tasting and of course, special food for the attendees. Great place, sumptuous food, and exquisite whisky? Anything to give out members the ultimate whisky experience!
It’s not a Singlemalt event without lively chit chat? Here are some of our members sharing a good laugh before the event with Chewy and our very own Johnssen Li.
Oh, and did we forget to mention? Free beers before the event! Get to mingle with like-minded whisky enthusiasts from all over the Philippines.
As the Masterclass started, Ian Chang relayed some of his whisky wisdom and of course, introduced the bottles that will be up for tasting.
Along with the star of the night which is the Kavalan Solist Peaty Cask, other exquisite Kavalan bottles were tasted by everyone too. From the Solist series everyone enjoyed the Port, Oloroso SHerry, amd Ex Bourbon and also the Kavalan Distillery Select.
All eyes were on Ian Chang as he discussed some whisky tips and tricks! We were listening to every word since it’s such a great opportunity to be in the company of a Master Blender.
There were also special discussions for the special questions from our members who were really enjoying the event.
As the Masterclass and Tasting session concluded, everyone was enjoying the night.. But wait.. The best part isn’t over yet..
