Glenfiddich showcases the versatility of scotch as the perfect mixed libation.

The temperature was hot and the energy of the Emerald City was vibrant — it was the perfect evening for Seattleites to soak up the summer sun while enjoying the coolest scotch concoctions, courtesy of the legendary single malt scotch whiskey distiller, Glenfiddich.

A distinguished trio of single malts were featured at a recent downtown tasting.

On Tuesday, May 10, the Washington Athletic Club hosted a tasting engagement for The Balvenie, one of the most eminent whisky labels in Scotland. A handful of invited guests were on hand to sip three select single malts — and a few lucky Seattleite staff members were among them. The event was part of a nationwide promotion to introduce a distinguished brand to a wider North American audience.
