16th of May
World Scotch Whiskey Day
World Whiskey Day is an annual Scotch whiskey holiday which is celebrated every third Saturday of May. Such a tradition was born in 2012.
The author of the holiday is the Scot Blair Bowman. The idea to celebrate such event had come when Bowman was a student at Aberdeen University. The main mission of the holiday is to introduce authentic Scotch whiskey to as many people as possible. Whiskey Day was inspired to Bowman by St. Patrick’s Day, during which many people drink Irish Guinness beer. If there is a day dedicated to the popularization of Irish beer (even if that is not its primary goal), then why shouldn’t there be a day dedicated to Scotch whiskey?
On this occasion many bars and other establishments in Scotland and abroad organize special events. The list of such places you may find on official website worldwhiskeyday.com.
On this occasion, many bars and other establishments in Scotland and abroad organize special events, a list of which can be found on the official web site of the holiday – worldwhiskyday.com. And if you’ve decided to join it, mr. Bowman asks to promote it in social networks using #worldwhiskyday.
On the occasion of this holiday, DDS+ is very pleased to present a new product that has recently entered the Ukrainian and European markets – Aerstone Scotch.
New 10-year single malt whiskey with two different flavors – Sea Cask and Land Cask.
Aerstone Sea Cask is a soft and light classic single malt scotch whiskey with nuts and vanilla notes. Sea Cask gets its taste and aroma by aging in warehouses located near the sea. It gives a slightly salty aftertaste.
Aerstone Land Cask is a saturated and smoky single malt whiskey with a rich aroma of peat. In its production, peat from the Scottish Highlands is using. The taste and aroma of the drink are achieved in barrels in warehouses located in mainland Scotland.
Sean Wiemann, global innovation brands manager at William Grant & Sons, said: «We wanted to create a brand that would allow customers to make confident choice and to offer great daily single malt scotch to complement our premium portfolio. We understand that for some consumers such definition can be difficult for understanding and be something confusing, but with Aerstone we want to overcome these barriers and borders and help to simplify people’s choice. We invite everybody to taste all the different sorts of single malt scotch».
DDS + is sure that every Scottish drink admirer definitely should try Aerstone whiskey and, perhaps, he will love it not less than already known.
