Southern California Whiskey Club presents an innovative dinner experience with two icons of the whisky world; David Blackmore, Global Brand Ambassador at LVMH and Daniel Crowell, Glenmorangie National Brand Ambassador at Moet Hennessy. This endeavor transcends the typical pairing of food plus whisky on the side, as Chef Kamil will prepare savoury items with single malt as an integral ingredient.
