WhiskyFest San Francisco

On Tuesday, October 23, WhiskyFest comes to San Francisco for the first time. Attendees will have the chance to sample some of over 200 of the worlds finest whiskies. The whisky list includes Springbank Rum Cask, Aberfeldy, Bruichladdich, The Dalmore, Sazerac Rye, Ardbeg and many many more.

If this wasn't reason enough to attend, a host of educational seminars are planned. All the seminars look very good, but one seminar promises to be particularly enlightening.

Whisk(e)y Debate

The Dalmore Master Blender, Richard Paterson and someone called Fred Noe plan to have a well-reasoned and civilized discussion on the relative merits of Scotland's finest malt whiskies as compared to some various types of American "Corn Likker."


Richard Paterson, the Master Blender for The Dalmore malt whisky and Whyte & MacKay blends, is a true gentleman and a more than qualified whisky expert. A third-generation master blender,
he knows just about everything about whiskey and is a passionate and knowledgeable history buff as well. Richard is entertaining, educational and an all-around asset to the whisky industry.

Richard Paterson discusses the finer points of Scotland's Whiskies.


Fred Noe will be talking about various types of American Corn Whiskey.

Apparently Fred's qualifications have something to do with the fact that he comes from a family of barefoot hillbilly moonshiners going back many generations. (They say his Great Grandfather was someone called Jim Beam.)

Fred Noe discusses the produce of barefoot hillbillies.
