Get Your Scot On! Great Scot Whiskey Tasting at The Turf Club, June 30

Okay, Monterey, get ready to show your Scots pride!  We at Carmel Hill Lodge have been beyond ourselves ever since news of this event leaked out. We’ve always agreed with Mark Twain’s views on whiskey: “Too much of anything is bad, but too much of good whiskey is barely enough.” If you love Highland single malts, this is the event for you!

This fabulous evening benefits the Monterey County Fair Heritage Foundation and is a preview to the 45th Annual Monterey Scottish Festival, which will be held on July 7 and 8. A first ever event, it will feature several whiskey tasting stations, including Glenlivet, Hankey Bannister, Balblair Single Malt, Dalmore and Old Pulteney. Old Pulteney, by the way, was awarded World Whisky of the Year in Jim Murray’s 2012 Whisky Bible for its 21-year-old single malt. Oh and there will also be light appetizers for anyone interested in food!
