January 1: New Year’s Day – Scottish Style!

Happy New Year, friends! We open at 12:00 pm today and we’ve got two gatherings to invite you to today:

1:00 pm

First Footing is a traditional Scottish gathering. Our friends from the St. Andrew’s Society of Minnesota are coming together to celebrate and they invite you to join them. Here’s the invitation (but you need not bring it, we’re open to all today!):

Now that Christmas is over, set your plans for New Year’s Day and attend the St. Andrew’s First Footing celebration!  We will gather at Merlin’s Rest, starting at 1:00 p.m.  Come anytime after that and enjoy the camaraderie and good times of an old fashioned Scottish First Footing.  There will be food and drink available for purchase.  Hope to see you there!

7:30 pm

Start off the new year with a nip of the best! The Whisky Wench (a.k.a., Fiona) is back with our next single-malt scotch tasting. Fiona reports:

I have some fine drams for you and this time we will focus upon what’s in a finish; contrasting some light finales with the heady richness of The Macallan.
#1: Royal Brackla – 10yr
#2: Singleton – 12yr
#3: Hazelburn – 8yr
#4: The Macallan Cask Strength
