This month’s question was posed to us by Karen & Matt from Whisky For Everyone and was a lot of fun to answer. No burning industry questions or soap-boxing this month, just a perfectly timed holiday challenge for us to introduce our favorite booze to family members who might not, shall we say, share our sane enthusiasm.
Here’s the question:
We at Whisky For Everyone are this month’s hosts of The Whisky Round Table and we have decided to set our fellow members a challenge. It’s that celebration time of the year again and be it through one holiday or another, religious or otherwise, we expect that all the Knights will be catching up with their families. Presuming that, like us, they will all be asked questions such as “what have you been up to this year?” and “so, how’s the world of whisky?”, our challenge is about engaging those ‘non-whisky’ family members. Here goes …
Pick two or three members of your family and select a whisky drink (this can be straight dram, with a mixer or elaborate cocktail) or whisky & food pairing that you think they will like. Try to mix it up – pick an auntie who ‘hates whisky following a bad experience’, your brother who always asks “what’s the best thing you’ve tried this week?” or your dad who you are just trying to impress. You get the idea … hopefully! Make them begin to understand about the fantastic spirit that is whisky and why we all love it so much.
