Scotch Tasting within walking distance [a video]

You could almost hear the bagpipes at Movado on that beautiful fall afternoon in Movado. Movado Homeowner Rick Gilchrist recently hosted a fun and informative Scotch Tasting event at the Social House. Donned in Scottish apparel from head to toe, Rick shared an in-depth explanation of scotches from different regions of Scotland. His presentation offered a variety of regional maps, taste guides, and even a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.

The format included seating arrangements of four per table, with respect to social distancing. Guests were invited to sample five different scotches, and learned about price points and other key factors to consider. Water crackers and provolone cheese trays were also on hand to “cleanse” palates between samplings.

Special thanks to Rick’s wife, Kaye, and his sister, Jane, who were also dressed as if they had just stepped out of a Scotland travel magazine. Their thoughtful planning and organization helped make this a fun afternoon at Movado.
