Exciting Tasting Opportunity: Vintage Dalmore Dinner with Richard Paterson

On behalf of Kensington Wine Market, Authentic Wine & Spirits Merchants and Whyte and MacKay I am very pleased and excited to announce that Richard Paterson will be in town on the night of Thursday March 28th to host a very special Dalmore whisky dinner at Vintage Chop House in Calgary, Alberta. Richard Patterson, AKA “The Nose”, is the world famous Master Blender for Whyte & MacKay, owners of Dalmore and Jura Distilleries. This is Richard’s first visit to Calgary in more than six years, since  he hosted our 2nd Annual Burns Supper at the former Polish Combatant’s Association on Kensington Road. If you’ve never seen Richard in action, you owe it to yourself to attend one of his tastings, before this legend retires!

Richard Paterson is one of the world’s best-known Master Blenders, having travelled the globe extensively as an ambassador for Whyte & Mackay, and most especially Dalmore Distillery. Richard became a Master Blender at the incredibly early age of 26, for many years the youngest in Scotland. Richard began his career as a general production assistant at A. Giles & Company Whisky Blenders & Brokers where he learned the art of blending before joining Whyte & Mackay, one of Scotland’s leading blenders, distillers and distributors of Scotch whisky. Richard is a former president of The Wine & Spirit Club of Scotland and the Institute of Wine & Spirits in Scotland. He has been awarded The Spirit of Scotland Trophy at the International Wine & Spirit Competition and is a Diploma Lecturer for Scotch Whisky for the Wine & Spirit Education Trust in London.  In 2008 Richard coauthored a biography, Goodness Nose.
