LAS VEGAS (March 11, 2014) - Glenfiddich Malt Master Brian Kinsman and Brand Ambassador Mitch Bechard will host an exclusive dinner featuring the world's most awarded single malt Scotch whisky at Delmonico Steakhouse on Wednesday, April 2 with a paired menu from Chef de Cuisine Ronnie Rainwater.
As Malt Master, Kinsman is responsible for Glenfiddich's time-honored whisky making tradition, from selecting casks through the maturation process. After apprenticing under Scotland's longest serving Malt Master, Kinsman became only the sixth Malt Master in Glenfiddich's 125-year history. The dinner at Delmonico Steakhouse marks his only public appearance in the United States this year.
A self-proclaimed whisky geek, Bechard hails from Scotland and brings a wealth of knowledge from managing restaurants and bars in Portugal, England, Scotland and Australia.
