October 19th, 2023 – Beverly Hills, CA. CaskX Whiskey Investment hosted an exclusive Glen Grant 72 VIP Whisky Tasting event. Picture this: a posh private estate nestled in the Beverly Hills foothills, where the who’s who of the A-list elite gathered to celebrate the liquid gold known as Glen Grant 72-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Hosted by the charismatic actor and entrepreneur, Oliver Trevena, and led by the dynamic duo of CaskX Founder + CEO Jeremy Kasler and his lovely wife, Lydia, this was an event that had everyone buzzing.
Now, what’s a high-end whisky event without some A-list guests? The star-studded guest list read like a Hollywood blockbuster credits reel. Mexican soccer sensation, Javiar “Chicharito” Hernandez from LA Galaxy, rubbed shoulders with actors Peter Facinelli, DeVaughn Nixon (of “Winning Time” and “Snowfall” fame), Ross McCall, Brock O’Hurn, Cory George, Lorenzo Antonucci, and UFC Champion MMA fighter Luke Rockhold, among several other notable personalities. And if that wasn’t enough, the evening saw enchanting performances by actress Candela Marquez and the talented Chaley Rose, who serenaded the crowd with Pink Floyd’s Scott Page.
But let’s get to the main star of the show—the Glen Grant 72-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky from Gordon & MacPhail. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill tipple; it’s been described as one of “the most historically significant whiskeys ever produced.” Imagine a whisky so rare that only a handful of bottles exist! We’re talking about a total production of 290 bottles, with 200 of them snatched up in pre-allocation. The whisky was presented in a hand-cut crystal decanter and accompanied by a one-of-a-kind NFT artwork by celebrated political cartoonist Harry Harrison. The winning bid in Hong Kong for this liquid gem? A jaw-dropping HK $937,500 (almost £95,000), including the buyer’s premium. As of now, the Glen Grant 72 is valued at a cool $126,666.00 for a 1000 ml bottle. You read that right!
The evening unfolded poolside, under the enchanting moonlight, with Whiskey Cocktails by Old Glory, a distillery partner of CaskX. Guests enjoyed Aged Whisky Tastings by Glen Grant, indulged in a lavish charcuterie spread, explored a custom whiskey mixology bar, and savored decadent caviar at the Golden Reserve Caviar tasting bar.
Whisky aficionados were in for a treat with the presence of Siddharth Sawkar, one of the world’s top whisky experts and one of only nine Masters of Scotch recognized by the Council of Whiskey Masters. He’s a whiskey collector, a leading presenter for the Los Angeles Whisky Club, and a walking encyclopedia of all things whisky.
And what’s a glamorous evening without the sweet sound of live music? Vocalist and actress Chaley Rose from “Nashville” lent her enchanting voice to the night, and Pink Floyd’s saxophonist, Scott Page, took the musical experience to a whole new level.
