An Evening of Scotch and Suits

What went down at Bow­more’s ex­clu­sive scotch-filled soirée

Toronto Life - - Food & Drink -

On Oc­to­ber 18, an ex­clu­sive list of guests rolled into LightForm for an evening filled with high-end scotch and style. Hosted by Bow­more Sin­gle Malt Scotch Whisky, in part­ner­ship with Toronto Life, Ti­tle Mag­a­zine and Surmesur Custom Menswear, at­ten­dees mixed and min­gled over glasses of the Is­lay-based whisky.

The west end show­room was filled with eye-catch­ing light in­stal­la­tions—the per­fect photo back­drop. For­mer CFL player, Bach­e­lor Canada and celebrity restau­ra­teur Brad Smith acted as the evening’s em­cee, while Bel­losound’s Daniel Buckman spun tunes all night.

Guests were treated to Bow­more’s sig­na­ture serve, The Oys­ter Luge, a sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ence that pairs Bow­more 12 Year Old with freshly shucked oys­ters from Rod­ney’s.

In a replica cask room, Bow­more brand rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mike McLean led guests through an ex­pe­ri­en­tial tast­ing where he drew sam­ples of Bow­more No. 1 from the bar­rel. He iden­ti­fied aro­mas and flavours of the smoky spirit be­fore toast­ing the night with a bit of Gaelic: “Slangevar,” he said, which trans­lates as “to your health.”

There was more Bow­more Sin­gle Malt Scotch to be sam­pled through­out the evening. At the Bow­more 15 Year Old sta­tion, guests in­dulged in drams of the el­e­gant spirit while an aro­matic mist boast­ing the mar­que’s tast­ing notes lin­gered in the air. Bar­tenders served up Bow­more High­balls and Honey Ginger Sours, fea­tur­ing Bow­more No. 1, at a custom bar that took cen­tre stage for the night.

Menswear ex­perts from Surmesur were on the scene to pro­vide guests with style con­sul­ta­tions. Both ladies and gents were gifted custom-printed, 100-per-cent silk Bow­more pocket squares.
