    Casting Workshops

    Bompas & Parr curated a copper-alloy casting workshop for 12 guests to celebrate the launch of The Glenrothes 42-year-old. The artisanal workshop heroed craftsmanship and connected guests to the story of The Glenrothes 42-year-old. Our guests were treated to a unique experience that connected them to the story of this exceptional whisky and the journey of its maturation process. Highlights included loggerhead serves, canapés representing the rugged land, and the final cast of the Glenrothes terrain as a unique memento of the evening. On entry, guests were presented with exhibits of the copper element around which the experience was built upon, visually explaining its connection to the whisky making process. From copper ore, to alloy ingot to the copper still, the workshop heroed the importance of the material evolution.
