The Scotch Single Malt Whisky Bar of Distinction

Commercial Category
(With purposeful intent, only the Scotch Single Malt Whisky is considered in this document.)

Introduction | Basic Requirements | Services & Certification

Other Requirements

A professional, educational development program, preferably at the candidate's bar, would be required to educate the bar management and staff on the previously outlined characteristics of the Scotch Single Malt Whisky. A one-time tasting/seminar is recommended at the initiation of the "Scotch Doc Bar of Distinction" award. After this initial session, the client and/or staff may attend one of the several regularly scheduled tasting/seminars conducted by The Scotch Doc, as the need arises.

Special Services Provided by the Scotch Doc

  • Seminars and professional development services for the client and associates.

  • Formal and informal tasting sessions for groups of any size. These social mixers are excellent "ice-breaker" events for private parties, business conventions, sessions and conferences of any size. They can be tailored to fit most any time and group size requirements.

  • A "personal appearance" in which The Scotch Doc appears in full kilt and accessories and "mingles" with the guests to informally answer questions, discuss and serve the Scotch single malt. Another format would be to set The Scotch Doc up in a corner of the room, or in an adjacent room, with a selection of Scotch single malts, and allow the guests to visit him and ask him questions.

  • Serve as a "special bartender" in concert with the regular bar staff.

  • Consultation services related to the Scotch single malt.

  • Consultation services pertaining to the inventory and inventory maintenance of a Scotch single malt bar.
