An Evening with Dave Broom: Book Signing & Tasting – Los Angeles

July 26, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Award-winning spirits writer Dave Broom guides whisky lovers through his newest book and a six-whisky tasting! Book signing to follow.

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society invites you to join award-winning spirits writer Dave Broom on his West Coast book tour! His newest release, A Sense of Place, is a personal journey exploring Scotland’s whisky through its terroir- including the land, weather, history, craft, and culture that feeds and enhances the whisky itself. An unforgettable evening of whisky discoveries awaits!

Attendees will be guided through this beautifully crafted narrative alongside six (6) single malt whiskies from distilleries featured in the book. Travelling around his native Scotland and visiting distilleries from Islay and Harris to Orkney and Speyside, Dave explores the whiskies made there and the elements in their distilling, and locality, which make them what they are. Along the way he tells the story of whisky’s history and considers what whisky is now, and where it is going.

Ticket includes admission, whisky tasting and a signed copy of A Sense of Place by the great Dave Broom!
