And the winner is . . .

August 7, 2012

Glenfiddich bottles*Which one single malt whisky was the only whisky NOT to be banned during Prohibition in the United States?
What clever marketing tool did the distillery use to accomplish this?

Colin knew the correct answers to the above questions and was randomly drawn as the lucky winner of a free ticket to the Eat, Drink and Be Literary fund-raising event!

This event will feature David Allardice a Glenffidich Ambassador, who will be sharing the history of Glenfiddich and it’s distillery practices. This is your chance to taste the difference between 12, 15, 18, and 21 year old single malts. There will also be a silent auction and raffle prizes.

There is still time to get in the earlybird drawing by registering for this event before September 5, 2012! (Must be present to win!) There is a chance to win a free bottle of Glenfiddich single malt!  You may register online or by mail: send checks to: Whisky Event, Rochester Public Library, 101 2nd St SE, Rochester, MN 55904. For questions regarding the event, please call 507.328.2343. This event is only for those who are 21 years of age and older.

Your donation/ticket is tax-deductible and helps support the Library. Proceeds from this particular fund-raiser will go towards the purchase of a portable reference station for the children’s area, battery operated tools to help the library maintenance staff in the upkeep of the library, and a new stove in the auditorium kitchen. This stove is an option for our patrons to use when they rent the auditorium. Not to mention that the staff uses it for the Volunteer recognition parties!

*The answers to the above questions are: Laphroaig whisky is the only brand that was allowed during the prohibition. They accomplished this by saying it was for medicinal purposes.
