Broomhall House hosts first ever New World Cigar and Scotch Whisky fusion festival
Broomhall House provided a memorable celebration for Robert Graham Ltd, founded in 1874, one of the UK’s oldest whisky and tobacco merchants. Taking the form of a New World cigar and Scotch whisky fusion festival, the 145th anniversary event was attended by 140 guests from around the world.
Following a personal guided tour of Broomhall given by Lord Bruce and a rousing overture by Clanadonia, guests were welcomed to the festival by Steve Johnstone, owner and MD of Robert Graham Ltd. As the evening wore on, they were treated to a sumptuous grazing menu provided by Hickory Food, paired to a specially selected range of single malts compered by the legendary whisky expert, Charles Maclean.
In addition to several of its own single-cask bottled whiskies, Robert Graham invited a number of well-known producers to participate in the festival including the Adelphi Distillery, Douglas Laing and Co., Ian Macleod Distillers, Whyte & Mackay, the House of Mccallum, and Remy Cointreau.
Guests were also spoiled by a bewildering array of New World cigars drawn from several South American countries. Alongside Robert Graham’s own prestigious selection, a further 12 specialist importers offered their premium brands from the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Mexico and Nicaragua. As a special tribute to the significance of the event, Broomhall also played host to the Nicaraguan Deputy Ambassador to the UK, Ricardo Carioni.
