The Black Grouse ~ The Famous Grouse has grown into a covey! Scotland's best selling scotch has a new peatier, slightly darker and brooding brother. Harvard and Stone hosted the Los Angeles launch party!
The Famous Grouse was actually the first blended scotch I ever tried. It was tasty, affordable and had a name that was fun to say. It was just what a budding scotch drinker needed. So when I learned that a new grouse was coming to town I was immediately excited to try it. Last night The Black Grouse was ushered into Los Angeles with a fun launch party in Harvard and Stone's back room. The event was hosted by the Onion's Baratunde Thurston. The combination of The Black Grouse and his upcoming book How To Be Black led to some laughs! They gathered three bartenders from across the city to try their hand at using this new ingredient and then asked the party go-ers to choose their favorites. While I certainly can't claim credit... all my favorites won!
