On Tuesday June 11, Nick Taylor of Taylor & Taylor Whiskey Co. will host a seminar on Benromach and the independent bottler, Gordon & MacPhail. G&M is one of the original bottlers of single malt whisky. While distilleries didn’t produce single malt bottlings until 1963 (when Glenfiddich first released the 12yr), Gordon & MacPhail was laying down casks starting in 1895. In fact, Gordon & MacPhail has produced the oldest single malt bottlings and was the official bottler of Glenlivent, Macallan and many other legendary single malt distilleries. They finally purchased their own distillery, Benromach, in 1993. In this tasting, Nick will take you through a magnificent lineup and illuminate the origins of single malt whisky. You will taste the following:
Benromach Imperial Proof
Bunnahabhain 2007 Cask Strength
Caol Ila 2005 Cask Strength

Patricia Green Cellars is located in the Ribbon Ridge Appellation of the Willamette Valley on a 52-acre estate purchased in 2000 by longtime friends Patty Green and Jim Anderson. Known for focusing on vineyard designated and clonal selections of Pinot Noir, they work with the best quality sites to make wines that reflect the diverse soils and micro-climates of the Willamette.
Unfortunately, Patricia “Patty” Green, died unexpectedly, which was a jolt to the Oregon winemaking community as she was truly beloved by all. Co-owner, and winemaker, Jim Anderson has taken the reigns continuing to make wines that honor Patty's legacy and their partnership.
Fellow east coaster, Jim Anderson (from Sebascodegan Island in Maine) features an array of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir which each have a distinct identity through focusing on diverse clonal variations and soil types. Prepare to get geeky as Jim is a true pioneer of pinot!
