Submitted to the Castlegar News

Dramgood Evening is coming to Castlegar on May 30.

This event is a scotch tasting and a five course meal held at The Element. This year there will be six single malt whiskeys including Talisker 10 YO, Glenkinchie 12 YO, Dalwhinnie 15 YO, Lagavulin 16 YO, Oban Distillers Edition (Distilled 1998 and Bottled 2013), and Cragganmore Distillers Edition (Distilled 1993 and Bottled 2007)

This will be an official scotch and food pairing. Food and scotch have been served before but this is the first time they’re being paired to determine what foods enhance the flavours of which scotches.

The speaker is Mike Nicholson, a third generation whiskey distiller who has managed and worked at some of the best known distilleries including Glenkinchie and Lagavulin (both of which are being served) and Caol Ila. He has assisted in the creation of many BC distilleries including Shelter Point Vancouver Island Distillery and Dubh Glas Distillery in Oliver.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the first pour is at 7. There will be raffle prizes, cigars for sale, and a live auction. A bus will be coming from and going to Nelson with multiple stops in between, as well as a safe ride home for those in Castlegar.

Tickets are $100 and are available through Oglow’s Paint and Wallcoverings or The Element or Assante Financial.
