Atlantic City, Wyo. – Miner’s Delight Inn will host its sixth season’s “Second Saturday Scotch Sipping at Six” on July 12, 2014. To celebrate this momentous anniversary whisky importer ImpEx Beverages will send Whisky Ambassador Chris Uhde to the inn to share six stunning single malt Scotch whiskies.
From the Isle of Arran Distillery Chris will pour 14 year old and a limited release whisky finished in Amarone wine casks. The recently released Tamdhu 10 year old, matured solely in sherry casks, comes from the Speyside region of Scotland, as does the Glenrothes 18 year old, which matured in a single sherry cask and was bottled by independent bottler The Creative Whisky Company at 104.6 proof. Of the two Islay malts Chris will pour the first comes from Bowmore Distillery – it’s a 12 year old bottled at cask strength (116.8 proof) by The Creative Whisky Company. Chris will share the latest expression from Islay’s newest and smallest distillery, Kilchoman. Loch Gorm, the whisky’s name, is the distillery’s sherry cask offering, and this 2014 version is the second limited edition in the annual series.
As ImpEx Beverages Western Sales Manager, Chris' expertise lies not only in whisky as a product and symbol of Scottish culture and heritage, but he has also proven to be gifted in sales, marketing and business operations, from specialty exclusive accounts to large scale region-wide programs. In addition to his role at ImpEx, Chris is Whisky Expert for the United Scottish Society of Southern California, the founder of the Southern California Whiskey Club and he volunteers as the Whisky Curator for the Daily Pint in Santa Monica, LA Weekly's Whisky Bar of the Year 2013. With 14 years of experience in the spirits industry under his belt, Chris is affectionately known as the Whisky Red Head or Whisky Ginger, and you can find him traveling throughout the West educating retailers, bartenders and consumers about the process of making and drinking fine whisky.
The night’s tasting will span the hours six till nine p.m., and the fee is a whopping $10. Innkeepers Barbara and Bob Townsend will have on hand a few delights to cleanse your palate between Chris’ whiskies. To find the inn visit this site: www.minersdelightinn.com.
