On Tuesday, 9th November Cask Trade hosted a fantastic whisky tasting at the prestigious private members club, 67 Pall Mall. Simon Aron our MD and founder kicked off the evening with a short welcome speech, before handing the floor over to Cask Trade raconteurs Sir Colin Hampden-White and Phil Huckle. They proceeded to guide the members on a tasting journey featuring an array of delectable single cask spirits, consisting of four whiskies and one rum.
They started off with a Cask Trade resident favourite, the Glen Moray 12-year – this was an instant hit! From the offset, the atmosphere was electric and the crowd was noticeably engaged in the tasting, asking an abundance of insightful questions along the way. The repartee between Colin and Phil certainly added to the convivial atmosphere and it’s safe to say the members thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The favourite whisky of the evening was the Orkney single malt (Highland Park) 13- year sherry cask, which was fondly described by guests as ‘exquisite’. We don’t think we can top that description!
Finally, a big thank you to our Sales & Marketing Executive Manager Josh Wood who ably assisted the hosting with his affable charm, and not forgetting the 67 Pall Mall events team and all their hard work that helped make for a most enjoyable evening.
