DIMO recently hosted over 40 individuals to experience the high profile whiskys under the Single Malt Appreciation Series curated by Trekurious.
The world’s most premium luxury automobile marque orchestrated this premium experience to highlight a unique involvement similar to what Mercedes-Benz offers – a unique lifestyle experience. The Single Malt Appreciation series guides one through the versatility and complexity of the world’s finest whiskys, enriching the appreciation of a cherished past-time and bringing oneself that much closer to what George Bernard Shaw so affectionately referred to as ‘liquid sunshine’.
An experience for the aficionado and the amateur alike, premium whisky tasting adds substance and variety to the normal liquor tasting activities. It includes savoring one blended whisky and four distinct single malts and enhances the appreciation and the knowledge under the guidance of a qualified expert. It also takes one through a virtual journey of Scotland’s finest distilleries.
