The LA Scotch Club’s Peatin’ Meetin’ Celebrates with Smoky Whisky and BBQ in its Largest Event Ever
Begun in 2009 as LA Scotch Club‘s backyard BBQ and celebration of all things peated, Peatin’ Meetin’ has grown into what is likely the world’s largest tasting of purely peated whiskies. Known especially through Islay’s scotch, peated whisky is smoky and earthy. With its bold flavors, it isn’t for the timid, but peated whiskies are now among the most sought after in the world.
Like the club itself, the event has grown phenomenally and on June 29, 2013 three hundred whisky lovers are expected to meet in Los Angeles to taste over one hundred whiskies from Islay and around the world. In addition to peated masterpieces shared by whisky sponsors, the LA Scotch Club sources rare bottles from shops and auctions worldwide to share with lucky attendees.
True to its roots, Peatin’ Meetin’ is a large festive outdoor celebration with live entertainment and BBQ smoked on site with peat imported from the British Isles. Unlike other whisky events, Peatin’ Meetin’ is not driven by companies to make money or generate sales, it is organized by a club of scotch lovers whose only profit is to taste great whisky, eat great food, and to share their favorite night of the year with friends new and old.
