Last Sunday, September 5th the Masters teamed up with the Hebrew Order of David Barmitzvah Project at the lavish Hartsbourne Country Park to host an evening of whisky tasting and biltong – truly a match made in heaven…
The event featured a decadent spread of shawarma and salads, as well as a guest appearance from England Cricket Legend Graham Gooch. The tasting itself consisted of a variety of four very different Cask Strength single malt Whiskies and was expertly lead by Cask Trade’s Brand Executive Phil Huckle, who guided the guests on a journey of Whisky Discovery.
Attendees were treated to a dram of a Glen Moray 12-year-old, a Royal Brackla 14-year-old, a 10-year Armore, and a 13-year Orkney Islands single malt, all of which were sampled along with a side of humour as Phil entertained and educated the crowd.
MD Simon was at the helm of the charity auction, allocating a variety of exciting prizes to the highest bidder. Cask Trade donated a few prizes that the team really wished they could bid for themselves, including a guided Whisky and Cheese pairing night for six guests in our Regent Street tasting room, a bottle of delicious 27-year-old Glen Garioch, and a divine 25-year-old Mortlach.
A special thank you to Masters Jess Simmons and Joel Luumi who helped keep the whisky flowing throughout the evening and to organiser Laurence Gishen. Slàinte!
