Colonial to host First Annual Robert Burns Memorial Whisky Tasting on Friday, January 25th

On Friday, January 25th, the Colonial Theatre is hosting their First Annual Robert Burns Memorial Whisky Tasting.

From their email:

---
This event to benefit the Colonial is a chance for tasting single malts and limited edition whiskies that you would not normally see on your bar shelves or in your local liquor store. We have this opportunity because Riannon Walsh, a world-renowned whisky expert, lives right in our back yard and loves and supports the Colonial herself. Riannon's work in the industry over the past 20 years includes hands on experience in small batch pot still whisky production in both U.S.-based and Scottish malt distilleries. Her expertise as a "nose" has resulted in independent bottlers of single malts turning to Riannon for cask selection.

The Association for the Colonial Theatre wishes to thank our premiere sponsor for their support:

Master Distiller: New Century Bank

And, special thanks to our Head Stillmen sponsors:

  • Riannon Walsh, President of Cloonaughill Celtic Malts, Inc.

  • Michael Ramondo, owner of Cheese!

  • Christopher Curtin, master chocolatier at Eclat Chocolate

Riannon, Michael and Christopher are putting together what will be a delightful evening of tasting and learning about single malts, and some wonderful cheeses and chocolates to complement them.

Sponsorship opportunities for this unique event are still available!
  • Master Distiller [$1,000]: Includes four seats at the tasting table and your name in poster, press and future emails.

  • Head Stillman [$500]: Includes two seats at the tasting table and your name in poster, press and future emails.

Checks can be made out to ACT and sent to PO Box 712, Phoenixville, PA 19460. Contributions are fully tax-deductible for any amount above $30 per person. This event can be a great holiday gift for family, friends or business associates - single tickets are available for $100 per seat. Each attendee will receive the hand blown whisky glass they use in the evening's tasting as a keepsake. These glasses were designed by Riannon Walsh to accentuate the subtle nuances of fine spirits.

Finally, we'd like to thank Tom Bromley of Centre Grafik, Inc. for designing the beautiful artwork and invitations for this event. Please let us know if you would like to receive a printed invitation in the mail. Tickets are extremely limited so please reserve your spot as soon as possible. Hope to see you on the 25th!
