SPECIAL ONLINE TASTING
with Peter Donnelly
As we are unable to enjoy our Saint Andrew’s evening this year in the conventional way, we can announce that Peter Donnelly of Glenfarclas / Pol Roger shall host an online SAFG whisky tasting on the evening our dinner was scheduled.
Peter will provide participants 3 x 50ml measures of three Glenfarclas expressions. The SAFG committee will add a 50ml measure of our anniversary bottling.
To accompany the 4 double drams, participants will also receive a Glencairn Glass as a memento of a double celebration – our 10th anniversary and 1st commemorative bottling. Given our continued focus on fundraising, the ticket price for the evening will also include a raffle entry where we aim to provide further £1000 prizes to be donated to the charity of the winners’ choice.
Jacobite have agreed to entertain us all with a few songs on the evening.
COVID restrictions allowing, you may even be able to get people together face to face and enjoy your own extended Saint Andrew’s get together. We would ask, however, that members adhere to all government requirements in force at that time. Your safety is paramount.
The evening will commence at 6.30 pm on Saturday 28 November 2020, which is the time we should be at the ‘Land of Leather’ for our regular pre- dinner get together. The absence of a hot meal waiting on us allows us to spend a bit more time than we normally have.
The price for the 4 double measures of whisky, commemorative glass and raffle entry is £35 per person.
10th Anniversary Bottling Winners Announced
The winning bottles of our commemorative bottling were numbers 274 and 36 purchased by Jim Baird and Michael Brackenridge, (shown here) respectively.
Jim has chosen to split his £1000 donation between Cancer Research UK and Diabetes UK, whilst Michael has chosen the St Vincent’s Hospice in Renfrewshire. Well done to them both and a thank you to all those who bought the bottles and allowed us to fundraise in this way.
