Taste of Scotland

April 8, 2017

Take a journey to a Celtic kingdom with our festive Taste of Scotland weekend. The Horse & Plow will be transformed into the Jigger Inn, our pub at St Andrews, an authentic backdrop for a lively band on Friday night, as well as Saturday’s Dram and Draft, a scotch and beer demo. Enjoy sipping premier whiskeys including Macallan, Glenfiddich and Balvenie at The Winery Bar for a seminar, The Heritage Scotch Tasting and Its Impact Around the World. Top off the day with an extraordinary four-course dinner of Scottish fare created by Whistling Straits Head Chef Dan Dries. A pre-dinner cocktail reception will feature traditional Scottish entertainment and a preview of Tommy’s Honour, winner of British Academy Scotland Film Award's Best Feature, before the April 14 release. This film tells the story of the challenging relationship between Tom and Tommy Morris, the dynamic father-son team who ushered in the modern game of golf. A Q&A with producer Jim Kreutzer will follow. Brave souls are encouraged to don their kilts for our take on the traditional Cèilidh! Finally, what would a trip to Scotland be without a round of golf? Book a tee time to play a round on the Old Course at Kohler Swing Studio.
