Last month saw our inaugural collaborative venture with Finnish sportswear brand Karhu, and to celebrate this landmark link up, in conjunction with Speyside whisky distillery Glenfarclas, we hosted a private whisky tasting event at local spot Faffless.
Just in case you missed it, alongside the HANON Legacy 96, we specially selected a Glenfarclas 15 year old single malt Scotch whisky which was released at the Speyside Whisky Shop in Aberlour, Scotland, and has sold out.
Glenfarclas is independently owned and family run, and the distillery is situated in the heart of Speyside, deep in the Scottish Highlands. This special bottling, produced exclusively for HANON and Karhu is released to an edition of 348 at 51.5% ABV. Each bottle features a bespoke hand numbered labeling.
To kick off the evening, we began with a whisky cocktail before getting stuck into the whisky tasting and sampling some Glenfarclas drams. A 10 YO, 12 YO, our own 15 YO, and a 105 Cask Strength were all on offer and Kirstin from Glenfarclas provided tasting notes and showed everyone who to truly appreciate a single malt. Faffless followed the tasting session presenting a supper brimming with local produce which was lovingly prepared in-house by the team.
Local DJ's Fair Play Crew took care of the music until close with stacks upon stacks of wax sourced from here, there, and everywhere, but with a particular focus on labels close to home and local talent from Aberdeen and across Scotland.
