Latest Whisky News - Chivas Brothers - Whisky connoisseur Dave Broom visits the Glenlivet ahead of Spirit of Speyside Festival 2010 - 2nd April, 2010

Dave Broom, Alan Winchester and Ian Logan Whisky Tasting31.03.10 - Chivas Brothers, the Scotch whisky and premium gin business of Pernod Ricard, recently hosted whisky writer and connoisseur Dave Broom at The Glenlivet Distillery, as he prepares for his Whisky Master Classes at the forthcoming Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival, which takes place from 29th April – 3rd May 2010.

Broom was welcomed by The Glenlivet Master Distiller Alan Winchester and his Master Class co-host Brand Ambassador Ian Logan. Together they selected an exclusive range of whisky samples to showcase at the tasting, including award winning expressions of The Glenlivet as well as some cask strength samples which are rarely made available.

Alan Winchester, Master Distiller of The Glenlivet comments; “It’s a real honour to have a whisky legend of Dave’s calibre here at The Glenlivet Distillery. We have chosen a selection of elegant and mellow malt whiskies, which perfectly reflect the quality and excellence of The Glenlivet range. Both Ian and I are really looking forward to welcoming Dave back here again in a few weeks time, during what is set to be a fantastic Spirit of Speyside Festival 2010.”

A photo of The Glenlivet Core RangeSince 1824 the wild and remote setting of Glenlivet has been the home of the single malt which inspired a region. Crafted in the remote LivetValley, it is the only whisky with the unchallengeable right to be called The Glenlivet.

Dave Broom’s Whisky Master Class will take place on Friday 30th April from 09.30 -11.30 and Saturday 1st May from 14.30 – 16.30. Tickets cost £20.00 and can be booked at www.spiritofspeyside.com.
