‘GENTLEMEN’S EVENING’ COURTESY OF GLENFIDDICH AND HABANOS

?

Last night, Mr. Ian Millar, Global Brand Ambassador, Glenfiddich conducted a malt appreciation paired with the celebrated Habanos Cigars amidst the city’s crème de la crème in a bespoke Gentlemen’s Evening at the Spanish Ambassador’s residence. The intimate Cigar and Malt special evening witnessed the city’s elite being treated to fine Single Malts paired with Cuban Cigars courtesy Glenfiddich brought by Ian Millar and Habanos by Chetan Seth, Chairman and MD, The Chemon Group.  Enjoying and indulging in the revelry were the city’s prominent faces including media moghul, AroonPoorie and fashion extraordinaire, SonalikaSahay. Also in attendance to celebrate the occasion were AishwaryaRana, Anil Chenana, ChandaChaudharyBarrai and Vikramjit Sen.



The guests sipped on fine Single Malts including Glenfiddich 12 YO, Glenfiddich 15 YO, Glenfiddich 18 YO and Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Madeira Cask while smoking premium Cuban Habanos Cigars such as Hoyo De Monterrey, Cohiba and Partagás, discovering how delightful the two taste when perfectly paired together.



On this special occasion, Ian Millar unveiled a Gentlemens’ private malt kit with a sampler of limited edition Glenfiddich 50 Year Old taken from his personal closet of whiskies. This special whisky is from a 1991 bottling with the whisky put into the cask in 1937, and is a rare and precious jewel in the Glenfiddich crown and among the most exclusive whiskies ever released.



Glenfiddich is the first to introduce the world to the pleasures of single malt. Having worked for more than 35 years in Scotland's finest distilleries, as Glenfiddich's Global Brand Ambassador and a member of Glenfiddich's nosing panel, Ian Millar has been circling the globe with one mission: to help whisky lovers and those yet unannounced to appreciate the myriad flavors and moods of Scotland's best-loved export.



Speaking to the guests at the event, Ian Millar said, “India as a country has a mature population of whisky-drinkers and Single Malt category has been the fastest growing category in past five years . Hopefully we shall see more and more people shifting to Single Malts. Delhi is truly a city of single malt lovers and we are looking forward to inducting more people to the world of Glenfiddich!”



Speaking at the event, CherrynDogra, Brand Manager for William Grant and Sons India said, “Glenfiddich believes in customised and experiential engagements.  With that endeavour, our revered whisky expert and Global Brand Ambassador, Ian Millar shares his whisky experiences and his passion with our consumers and trade partners through personalised tastings and appreciations. This year his visit is focused on customized Glenfiddich pairings with cigars and Indian cuisine at key locations engaging the community of like-minded connoisseurs.”



The whisky tasting was paired with a delectable menu by Damson Catering. The indulgent meal comprised of a lavish Scottish spread cooked to perfection to aptly complement and enhance the unique flavour of Glenfiddich’s Single Malt Whiskies.
