A new trend in weddings is tasting bars. And scotch is a great spirit to carry this theme because of their different ages and the fact that the bottles are really handsome and add style to groomsmen’ experience. For women who want to sip some single malt, be sure to add some chocolate to the tasting – it really brings out the flavor of a single malt.
Brides and Grooms are raising the bar when it comes to drink hospitality. Fashioned after the simplicity of enjoying stand-alone drinks, scotch tasting bars have evolved from their traditional backdrop in black and white movies and have modernized their way into elegant weddings, dinner parties, and even everyday occasions. The new wedding trend let’s guests sample and select their favorite malts, while experiencing others they’re not yet familiar and adds a Wow! factor to the event. Don’t forget to “always throw in something unexpected.” Anyone can turn this trend into their own signature Wow! factor by offering a handful of varieties and serving them on a silver platter.
Be sure to start with an interesting concept – it’s fun to work with a Scotch that has several expressions – this way your guests can sip an learn. The Dalmore is a good example of this – the expressions range from about $50 a bottle to about $225.
