LASC Peetin' Meetin' V
Location: Sunset Canyon Recreation Area - UCLA Campus
This is the big one, the granddaddy of them all. LA Scotch Club's special event Peatin’ Meetin’, the world’s biggest peated whisky festival (likely the only one too), will be back on June 29th on the UCLA picnic grounds. This is our one big “do not miss” of the year.
We absolutely canvas the tables with whisky bottles from around the world. All of Islay’s famous peated scotch will be poured by sponsors (Laphroaig, Ardbeg, etc.) attending the event. In addition, independent bottling companies (Chieftain’s, Duncan Taylor) will select the peatiest malts from their collection to share with everyone. Bottles that can’t be found in America and bottles sold long ago find their way onto the Peatin’ Meetin’ tables for no other purpose than to share a great dram with friends.
We have perfected the art of imparting peat smoke onto a great piece of meat. This year 175 pounds of grass fed NY strip sirloin from Harmony Farms will be professionally PEAT smoked on site and served with a generous portion of sides. We are getting better at this each year, and will have a professional pitmaster on hand to make sure that everyone has a half pound steak smoked to perfection.
The Brick Top Blaggers and Green Ashes will play their brand of Irish rock. Last year the Blaggers gave us the perfect whisky drinking music, and this year they will share the stage with Green Ashes to give us 4 solid hours of live music.
7Grand’s master mixologists will be making (free) peated cocktails that have been perfected at one of the nation’s most famous whisky bars.
Malibu CL will have something up their sleeve involving Tatuaje. Contact me directly to learn more.
WhiskyLive LA is giving a FREE VIP upgrade to all attendees of Peatin’Meetin’.
Single Cask Nation will fly in from New York to pour their own peat for night, and their other bottles on Sunday.
Ireland Earth will supply peat for the BBQ and burn peat in the event space. Perhaps they’ll have some samples for you.
Peated Beer will be around for the curious.
THE PEAT MONSTER
LA Scotch Club’s infamous Peat Monster be on hand with his own cask of mystery whisky for anyone who wants a photo op and a dram straight from the cask.
COOL EVENT IMPROVEMENTS
As far as I can tell we will have the first Whisky Event App ever. iPhone and Android. Alongside a load of event information, each bottle at the event will have a page where you can read about the whisky, RATE it will a slide of your finger, and record notes. Most especially, we’ll have shade canopies and real lighting (look ma, we’re all grown up!)
