I had the pleasure of attending an intimate event hosted by Campagnolo on Thursday, October 29th, and met special guest Ian Millar, Global Ambassador for Glenfiddich, the World’s Most Awarded Single Malt. The Mad Men inspired event was a nod to the 1960s, laissez-faire attitude of the cocktail being considered a necessary component of office culture. A key innovator in Single Malt Scotch production, the Glenfiddich Distillery introduced the popular concept to the world in the 1960s.
The Glenfiddich cocktails featured at Campagnolo are $8.50 each (plus applicable taxes). The Nero is made with Hendricks gin, Glenfiddich and Liquore Strega, and is garnished with a Cerignola olive. The Rob Roy, or classic scotch cocktail, is made with Glenfiddich, Cinzano red vermouth and a dash of Angostura bitters, and is garnished with an orange twist. The Pete Marche, or contemporary scotch cocktail, is made with Glenfiddich, Orancio vermouth and a dash of cherry bitters.
Campagnolo, Main Street’s casual Italian eatery, celebrates Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch Whisky throughout the month of November with three inspired cocktails created by bar manager Giovanni Giardino. True to Campagnolo’s roots, each cocktail is made with an Italian ingredient—or an Italian twist.
Campagnolo is located at 1020 Main Street, Vancouver BC
