Single malt scotch dinner set for Thursday in Avon
VAIL CO, Colorado
AVON – Balvenie brand ambassador, Nicholas Pollacchi, of The Balvenie, will be at vin48 in for a five-course Single Malt Scotch dinner Thursday at 6:30 p.m. Pallocchi will educate and enlighten guests with stories about the Speyside single malt scotchs of The Balvenie.
Vin48 Chef Charles Hayes has prepared a special tasting menu, each course paired with one of Balvenies single malts. This dinner marks the first time vin48 has hosted an all spirits dinner.
“Being our first Scotch dinner, this is sure to be an exciting evening and a great value,” said Greg Eynon, owner/wine director vin48. “Nicholas Pollacchi is an entertaning educator with a wealth of spirits knowledge and Chef Hays has planned truly delicious pairings.”
A world traveler, spirits expert and single malt obsessive, the Balvenie brand ambassador Pollacchi has spent his entire career committed to educating, entertaining and illuminating crowds across the planet. From his native Scotland to the four corners of the globe, he has developed the kind of unrivaled expertise and knowledge that sets him apart from many of his peers and makes him the perfect ambassador for the world’s most handcrafted single malt scotch whisky.
Located in Speyside, the Balvenie distillery was founded by William Grant more than 100 years ago and still remains family owned after five generations. Today, The Balvenie is a unique range of single malts, created by David Stewart. The Balvenie Malt Master is now in his 49th year of Scotch whisky making. Nowhere else will you find a distillery that still grows its own barley, still malts in its own traditional floor maltings and still employs a team of coopers to tend all the casks and a copper smith to maintain the stills.
