Black Grouse and Calligraphy!

BY jane, ON Friday, November 30, 2012

I was asked to participate in an event for Black Grouse Scotch.  It was quite an evening! As each guest arrived, they told the uber talented bartenders what flavors they preferred in their cocktail, using Black Grouse as a main ingredient.  A personal cocktail was then concocted for them on the spot.

I had two assistants positioned near the bartenders.  They made notes for each individual’s recipe.  The notes were then shuttled over to me at the calligraphy table where I lettered all evening. Each guest was then presented with a hand lettered recipe card as a take away gift! The idea is a great party idea don’t you think?

Bottles of Black Grouse set against a New York City street.

I was quite busy penning all the details of each individual recipe!

A reminder from The Delicate Pen to drink responsively and never drink and drive.
