Where: The House of Glunz

Time: 2 to 5pm
Date: Januray 30, 2010

Wild Scotsman is pleased to announce the “Pre-release” showing of two new Single Cask Single Malt selections at The House of Glunz. These two selections coming from both the Islay and Speyside regions of Scotland offer you the consumer a unique view of what types of flavors I appreciate as a blender.

The selection of single casks for me is about the different nose, taste, and finish qualities rather than the actual Distillery brands themselves. Each distillery creates its brand to very specific standards (nose,taste, finish,and color), which is created by blending the essence of many different casks. I am focused on finding that one perfect cask for my taste preferences which is unique to that one cask or for the specific task of blending.

My new single Cask 27 year from Islay and 12yr from Speyside are in very limited quantities. Each bottling is at 50% alc./vol., non chill filtered, and never colored. is my first edition in my new Targe Label which are all personally signed and numbered as a sign of my personal commitment to you the consumer that only my best is ever bottled.

See you at The House of Glunz!

Cheers,
The Wild Scotsman

Wild Scotsman Kettering Rotary Club Speaker

Wild Scotsman Kettering Rotary Club Speaker
by Jeffrey Topping

I am pleased to announce that I will be speaking at the Kettering Rotary Club in Kettering, OHIO. Rotary International is the world’s first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.

As a past member of Rotary Club 17 in Cincinnati, OH and a Paul Harris Fellow I am honored to share my journey with those who work to make the world a better place.

This will not be a tasting but rather a discussion of how a distant Son of Scotland came back to his families roots after 100 years and returned home with a trade from the past.

Private Label Scotch for the New Year!

Private Label Scotch for the New Year!
by Jeffrey Topping

Many businesses spend hours insuring that their wine lists are second to none. Picking brands based on “quality” and not necessarily “brand image”. What the consumer receives is a one off experience which can only be relived by coming back. Somewhere in American Bar Culture this concept was missed with Spirits. Instead the consumer is given mostly high production brands with little opportunity to experience a more premium hand crafted quality.

At Wild Scotsman we can bring the highest production quality Scotch Malt Whisky to your shelves with your own custom designed label. Imagine your customers delight when you offer them the essence of one (1) cask of Scotch Malt Whisky, bottled at cask strength (barrel proof 100+), Not colored, and not chill filtered. Your customers will have a singular unique drinking experience like that of a vintage unfiltered wine and they cannot buy that at any store, restaurant, or bar but yours. It might even give your customers a greater appreciation for the standard brand by being able to experience a piece of what the Master Blender has on the pallet during brand creation.

Private Label Wings Bottlings

This past December we delivered two single Casks of Scotch Malt Whisky to Wings Restaurant in Bexley, OH. They received a 12 yr and 27yr Single Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky both at Cask Strength. No other bottling of these fine Scotch Whiskies will taste exactly like these. A one off experience, which can only be had at Wings.

Mr. Wing and son

Cheers,

Jeff
