May Malts at DiVino Wine Studio

A capacity crowd gathered at DiVino's on March 4th for an international whisky tasting. Paired with the predictably good food from DiVino's kitchen, an enthusiastic crowd tasted their way through some gems from Japan, Ireland, the US, Canada and, of course, Scotland. As a very basic description, all whisky is an alcoholic beverage produced from grains and water, but between chopping down the grain in a field and pouring something deliciously interesting into a glass, a lot of different things happen. In between sampling, we followed some of the processes and techniques used in different countries and distilleries to produce various versions of uisge beatha, aqua vitae, the water of life - call it what you will.
The next tasting at DiVino's will be on Thursday, 27th May. After traveling the whisky globe in March, we'll be back in Scotland for this one. Expect great Single Malt Scotches, fabulous whisky friendly tasting plates, good company and a little education. These events sell out pretty quickly, and there was a waiting list for the last one. Hope to see some of you in May.
