The Star (Kenya) - - Society -

If you were not at the RMA Mo­tors show­room on Satur­day af­ter­noon, then you most def­i­nitely were at the wrong place.

Oys­ters and Sauvi­gnon Blanc, Glen­livet Founders special tast­ing, Af­ter­noon tea with Martell, the Ma­callan tast­ing, Old Fash­ioned Hour with sin­gle­ton sun­ray cock­tails, Wine and Cheese board, Wine Cul­ture with Baraka and the Jame­son mixol­ogy master­class were some of the ex­pe­ri­ences you missed out on.

The Con­nois­seur, a one of a kind, first of its type event in East and Cen­tral Africa was tak­ing place cour­tesy of Ra­dio Africa Group. Spon­sored by Sa­fari­com, the wine and whisky fes­ti­val was an ex­pe­ri­ence in it­self. Not only was the bev­er­age list cu­rated, so was the guest list.

From the mo­ment you walked in till the last call, it was a per­son­alised jour­ney com­plete with a ‘ pass­port’ to doc­u­ment ev­ery step. SHK Con­sult­ing en­sured the event in­stal­la­tion was spot on.

Pre­mium brands were on show­case and the in­vi­tees got to in­dulge in tast­ing some of the finest whiskies, co­gnacs, wines, an­tipasti and sweets.

And for cigar afi­ciona­dos, the Cedar Box was on hand with their wide range of pre­mier cigars in­clud­ing hand­made Ca­ma­cho cigars from Hon­duras, par­adiso and olive cigars from Nicaragua.
