Glenfiddich may be the World’s Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch, but that is not the only reason for the champagne toast at a recent Glenfiddich event. Appropriately held at one of the finest French restaurants in Dallas, Bullion, Glenfiddich launched Grand Cru, an exclusive expression that has been matured for 23 years and elegantly finished in French Cuvée casks. It is a masterpiece, bringing together the most superior liquids from both Scotland and France.Continue reading →
Trinity Groves, nestling at the western foot of Santiago Calatrava’s architectural masterpiece bridge, was packed on Thursday night as Savor Dallas kicked off its 2014 festival (March 20th-23rd, 2014) with a first-class event pairing the restaurants of what might be described as the opening fission of Trinity Groves, wines from the whole planet including Texas wineries Fall Creek Vintners and Becker Vineyards proudly leading with their wines from Texas-grown grapes and saying it loud and clear on the front label. Beer aficionados could choose between a beer made within a drunkard’s stagger of the event location (Four Corners Brewing Company – which is on the same street) or Belgium’s Stella Artois, where impossibly thin, impossibly blond, gals gave out commemorative glasses for attendees to take home. I previously reported how rapidly Four Corners Brewing Company is establishing itself, despite their newness on the Dallas beer scene (in fact, they have even taken design of their web site away from the four-year old that had it previously – next event is this Saturday 6pm — beer with local food — and it looks i-c-e c-o-o-l). Judging by the lines, they were a hit at the show.
