If you missed our Burns Night Celebration, we’ve another exciting opportunity to experience the film.
As whisky lovers ourselves, it’s important to us that we’re giving our audience an opportunity to experience the full sensory spectrum of whisky. To us, it’s not just about watching the story on screen but it’s about creating sensory experiences that allow you to watch, hear, and taste the story behind some of the greats of the whisky world.
For this event, we’ve collaborated with our friends at The Single Cask to bring you an amazing whisky experience.
We’re pairing an extraordinary Bruichladdich single cask bottling from The Single Cask with a screening event that includes:
- A tasting session with Brendan Asher Pillai from The Single Cask
- A Q&A session with the filmmakers; and the man who distilled the whisky in the bottle: Jim McEwan.
This event will be exclusive to those who purchase the bottle – because, what’s a tasting session without the bottle! The full experience, film screening, bottle, tasting session and Q&A costs £149 click below to purchase the experience at The Single Cask.
About the event
The event will be on Friday, March 5th.
(Why so far away I hear you say, we’ve had to build in a bit of buffer as Brexit is playing havoc with deliveries)
The film will be available for you to watch at your leisure from midnight GMT on the 4th March but…
…. to get the best experience we’d recommend
Kicking off the film at 19:00 GMT/ 14:00 EST/ 11:00 PST (it’s approx. 88 mins long) and at 21:00 GMT/ 16:00 EST/ 13:00 PST the Live tasting and Q&A session will kick off.
Leading the tasting session, Brendan is a self-professed whisky nerd who’s turned his passion for the golden liquid into his day job. Brendan is part owner of The Single Cask whisky bar in Singapore, runs his own whisky blog (WhiskyMate.net) and is a key part of the team that hunts down some of the amazing casks released under The Single Cask range. He’s even had the pleasure of being ‘baptized’ on stage in Nurnberg by Jim himself (check out our social media for the video!)
The Q&A will include Greg Swartz, Director of The Water of Life… and a special appearance by Jim.
About the cask
Cask #3615 was distilled on the 12th of October 2009 at the Bruichladdich Distillery and matured in a first fill Bourbon cask for 11 years. The American white Oak Bourbon cask helps bring the full bodied and deliciously decadent palate to the golden liquid.
This unique expression has been bottled un-chill filtered, with no added colour, at cask strength of 61.3%.
Cask #3615 yielded 247 bottles which The Single Cask are releasing in celebration of The Water of Life Film.
About the bottle
Bruichladdich 2009 #3615 (61.3% ABV) – 247 bottles
Nose: macadamia, sea salt, malt, honey, cacao, light hay
Palate: An immediate rush of liquorice, lemon, key lime and fennel which took the tongue a few minutes to process before it leads on to green apple, pineapple, cinnamon and mint on second taste before it exits and leaves you salivating with malt powder and sencha rice tea. Full-bodied and decadent.
Finish: Dries off into malt, white pepper, coriander seeds
