Known as “the bad boy of Speyside” Craigellachie has always rebelled against modern day whisky norms, believing that whisky is made for drinking and enjoying with friends, and not for sitting on a shelf collecting dust. This is why Craigellachie has decided to share its newest oldest expression and avoid having an exorbitant price tag attached to it.
Bar 51 – which is debuting in London before travelling to Australia, South Africa and the US – will feature just six seats and the space will be transformed into the world of Craigellachie. Fittingly taking place at London’s oldest whisky shop, the opening night also coincides with Craigellachie’s co-founder, Peter Mackie’s birthday.
The cosy quarters will bring friends and strangers together over a dram of whisky that’s patiently waited 51 years to be enjoyed, with other whiskies from the range also available including Craigellachie 13 and Craigellachie 23, all at no cost. Guests will be guided through this very special tasting by Craigellachie’s Global Brand Ambassador Georgie Bell.
Bar 51 Pop-Up at Milroy’s of Soho, 3 Greek St, Soho, London W1D 4NX | 26th– 28thNovember
