On Saturday the 26 th of September the first BABC YP Scotchtober event was held in Sunny Alameda at The Hunter Public House; one of the BABCs newest Business members. It was a small group of us that came together from the BABC Young Professionals network including several new members which was great to see.
Some of us ventured over the Bay on the Ferry before being welcomed by The Hunter Public House President Sharon who treated us all to a complimentary pineapple cocktail which was refreshing on such a gorgeous Indian Summer Saturday.
The conversation between us all flowed from the get-go, before sitting down to our 6 scotch whisky and cheese pairings led by distillery representative Rory Glasgow. Each guest sat down to a selection of scotch whisky from three unique Scottish distilleries: The GlenDronach, The BenRiach, and Glenglassaugh Scotch Distilleries. Rory took us on a Scotch 101, diving into the production, history and the flavor profiles offered by each distillery with all whisky expressions being expertly paired with a selection fine cheeses.
This was a culturally unforgettable tasting of whisky for all those that attended and we look forward to a future event to be held at The Public Hunter House. Thank you to all those that attended, and we hope to see all those that attended again soon and we are sure The Public Hunter House will do so too!
