Whisky connoisseurs, how would you like to experience $57,000 worth of whisky and feast on a 5-course degustation dinner at acclaimed whisky and cocktail lounge Eau-de-Vie Melbourne?
Well, you and 15 others guests can attend an intimate soirée to taste five extremely rare and unique single malt scotch whiskies each aged up to 46 years. These unique drams form The Balvenie DCS Compendium Chapter One, a rare series of single cask whiskies with only 50 editions produced globally, all of which have now been sold into private collections around the globe, including the 1 edition for Eau-de-Vie Melbourne.
Eau-de-Vie is the only bar in the world with a supply of the ultra-rare compendium, and the elegant dinner and tasting will be guided by the Balvenie Brand Ambassador Ross Blainey and Geoff Fewell, Head of Whisky at Eau-de-Vie.
The five-course degustation dinner will be set in ‘The Library’ room on Eau-de-Vie’s custom made degustation table inspired by not only the whiskies themselves but the iconic distillery in which they were created. The delectable menu is designed by Eau-De-Vie’s Head Chef, Paul Bertheau and each of the opulent courses will be complemented by a rare whisky.
Tickets are on sale now, and the event will take place on September 20, 2017, from 7.30pm. Guests will also receive a personalised invitation, a copy of the menu, a copy of the original DCS Compendium book signed by David Stewart and a one of a kind Scottish Glencairn crystal glass.
The DCS Compendium was launched in 2015 by Balvenie Malt Master, David Stewart, as a magnificently detailed handover of one man’s skill, knowledge and craftsmanship from his 54 years of experience in the industry at the premium independent family owned Scottish distillery, William Grant & Sons. The ambitious collection comprises of 25 whiskies (5 Chapters in total).
