Cheers to Dad

Rhett at The Alida offering free whiskey tasting for Father's Day

Father’s Day is around the corner, which means it’s time to decide which golf club or funny mug to wrap up with some beef jerky for Dad this year.

One local restaurant is urging people to mix it up this Father’s Day by taking Dad to a free whiskey tasting event. Rhett, The Alida’s signature restaurant, will be raising a glass to dads across Savannah at 11 a.m. June 20 with a free whiskey tasting from Georgia producer, American Spirit Whiskey. An American Spirit Whiskey brand ambassador will be on site serving up complimentary tastings of four signature varieties: Fiddler Bourbon, Resurgens Rye, Duality Double Malt and Tire Fire Single Malt.

The brand ambassador will be sharing their deep knowledge and will answer all of Dad’s questions. Each whiskey will also be featured in a new specialty cocktail on the Rhett menu, so families can stay awhile and celebrate.

“This Father’s Day, we wanted to create a special experience for dads to enjoy with our compliments at The Alida,” said Arthur J. Sertorio, Food and Beverage general manager. “We chose to partner with one of our favorite local whiskey producers, American Spirit Whiskey, for a Father’s Day Whiskey Tasting where dads can sample an array of their distinctive small-batch silver whiskey.”

American Spirits Whiskey is based in Atlanta and specializes in whiskies that are “unique to the American market.” They blend the techniques of Scottish whiskey-making tradition with modern innovations.

For example, the Duality Double-Malt that will be featured in the Father’s Day lineup is made from both malted rye and malted barley, creating a whiskey that blends American-style rye with Scottish-style single malt.

Whether you and your old man are big whiskey folks or not, Sertorio said the experience is sure to be special. Plus, great memories with Dad go great with funny mugs and beef jerky.
