Glasgow Yelp Event @ Hotel Du Vin with Good Spirits Co!
Thursday night is Yelp night... we all know this now. Telly, nah. Yelp, aye. So with a wee tingly pang of 'oooft' kicking around in their bellies, Glasgow Yelpers rolled up to the opulent awesomeness of Hotel Du Vin Glasgow for a night of splendid grub, cracking whisky and random assed banter.
After downing a cheeky wee welcome drink and rounding up the late coming stragglers and other types, the event kicked off in earnest as Matthew from The Good Spirits Co took up the reins and guided the group through a tasting sesh designed to tickle the tastebuds and edu-ma-cate that there grey matter.
As the whisky flowed (GlenGrant, Deanston, GlenDronach, Ardbeg), the grub followed suit as each dram was complemented beautifully by a canape from the illustrious kitched at the Hotel Du Vin Bistro. From fresh salmon, to fried calamari, cheese scones and beefy/Yorkshire pud goodness, the nosh on offer tip top and perfectly suited to the range of flavours offered out by the diverse selection of uisge beatha.
Big thanks once more to Nan from Hotel Du Vin for making this happen and having us rowdy lot along to their wonderful wee hotel. Special thanks to Matt and everyone at The Good Spirit Co for coming along and treating us with an awesome selection of whiskies.
Once again, our splendid wee night was committed to digital imagery by the fine and dandy Mr Alastiar Watson and for this we salute him... Huzzah!
Final word goes to me, coz I'm writing this. You there. Yes you, the one reading this. The final thanks for now goes to you. Thanks so much for coming along to the event and making the evening what it was... fun. Whether you're new to the site or a Yelp veteran, we're all brought together in supporting great businesses and having a laugh at the same time. Keep it up!
