Taking place on Monday 3rd December 2018 at Boisdale of Canary Wharf, the evening kicks off from 6pm with canapes, drinks and a cigar reception.

Followed by a 3-course meal and awards presentation, the evening will end with The Glenrothes Whisky & more cigars back on the terrace.

The awards ceremony will be hosted by Tom Parker Bowles & Randolph Churchill with 4 cigars for each guest handed out on arrival.

The Glenrothes Whiskey will be creating select reserve cocktails for the reception which will be served alongside champagne.

The 3-course meal will also end with a glass of The Glenrothes 12 yr old Speyside Single Malt Whisky. We were lucky enough recently to be invited to the launch of The Glenrothes Soleo collection where we tried the 12 year which is a really smooth sipping whisky so cannot wait to try it alongside a cigar.

Tickets are available and can be purchased from Boisdale here.

Here’s a flavour of what to expect from last year:
