ArdbegDay LA 2019 was a smashing success. Thanks to everyone who joined us in making this event one to remember; so many fun cocktails to choose from!
The Southern California Whiskey Club was very happy to have Travis Tidwell presenting a “Celebration of All Things Ardbeg”. This was a fun + educational event created for Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of Ardbeg Drum, a whisky that has been rested in ex-rum casks from the Americas. We shall call it “Ardbeg Day-ish 2019!” The festivities featured a blind comparison tasting of the past 3 years of Ardbeg Committee Releases along with 4 specialty tiki cocktails made with Ardbeg from the creative minds at the Phoenix.
