Amid chic cocktail gatherings lately, we?ve noticed women snubbing their usual gin and tonics or Chardonnays. When there?s even a bit of a nip in the air, they are opting instead for a dram of warming brown liquor. Ah, Scotch--yet while you may know the basics of ordering it neat versus on the rocks, you need some hands-on experience to learn the finer points of savoring Scotch whisky.

That?s the idea behind an upcoming tasting sponsored by prestigious spirits maker The Glenlivet. Master of the most sophisticated type of Scotch--single malt--The Glenlivet is organizing a local tasting on February 12 and 13 in Los Angeles (rsvp here). This Nights of Passage event is tailored exclusively to bringing women together in a festive atmosphere to further their Scotch enjoyment. 

You?ll learn the backstory of the generations-old production that takes place in Scotland. You?ll drink in delicious tidbits to dazzle your friends with. (Did you know only 10 percent of Scotch is, like The Glenlivet, the vaunted single-malt variety? And that a drop or two of water helps release Scotch?s flavor?) Best of all, led by a knowledgeable brand ambassador, you'll have the chance to appreciate the aroma and taste in 12-, 15- and 18-year-aged whisky varieties.

It?s cocktail hour--who knew getting an education could be so much fun?

Enjoy Our Quality Responsibly.
