Raise your glass and sample some of Scotland’s best single-malt whiskies as we celebrate Geography Awareness Week with award-winning Scotch whisky expert Richard Crawford. The whiskies of Scotland reflect the diversity of the Scottish land with their diversity of flavors. From the islands to the Highlands to the River Spey, a sampling of single malts is also a geographic odyssey. A James Beard Award winner for Outstanding Contribution, Crawford will explain how the whiskies reflect the soil, water, and agriculture of their places of origin. If you think geography is a “dry” subject, this is the event for you!
