Thirty Beaudesert Rotary members enjoyed a taste of Scotland when they  held a Single Malt Whisky tasting and Scottish supper at the Stationmaster’s House.

Held as a fundraiser for local foodbank Tracey’s Pantry and Rotary projects, guests enjoyed tastings of five single malt Scotch whiskies selected by whiskey enthusiast, Dan Mallon and an Australian Single Malt Whisky.

Dan said his future father in law, Beaudesert Rotary President Mark McCabe, knew whisky was his passion and asked him to host the evening. 

The Single Malts were from the five regions of Scotland – Lowlands, Highlands, Islands, Islay  and Speyside. 

Each tasting was paired with canapes including smoked chicken and cheddar and goats cheese in filo pastry, designed to add to the experience.

Dan gave some history of the regions and spoke about how whisky is made, as well as providing the guests with comprehensive tasting notes on each whisky.

Mark thanked Member for Wright Scott Buchholz and the Beaudesert Hotel for supporting the sold out event.
