Connoisseurs of the good life rejoice as you can now be part of the world’s most lavish whisky-based experience, with premium label Glenfiddich nonetheless, as the Universal Whisky Experience returns to Las Vegas’ Wynn Resort on March 1-2, 2013 for the third time. This uber-luxurious event allows patrons to savor a private tasting of a 50-year-old Glenfiddich rare scotch, valued at $40,000 a bottle, from inside an exclusive location in the Grand Canyon. A fleet of helicopters will take you to the location where the Global Brand Ambassador for William Grant & Sons, Ian Millar, will present three scotches to kick start this superlative experience.
Also on the cards are master classes by the industry’s most respected names, U.S. launch of Johnnie Walker’s Diamond Jubilee, playing golf at a Masters course with your favorite whisky distiller, gourmet welcome dinner from Wynn’s Executive Chef James Benson as well as meeting other like-minded collectors and distillers. The tickets, which range from $275 to $2,295 for VIP treatment, can be purchased here.
