Question: What do you get when you combine brine with peat and a beat?
Answer: Seven Grand‘s pairing of oysters with Islay Bowmore whiskey…accompanied by a poem.
Or rather, 30+ poems.
The Tuesday, March 13th event, which will be presided over by Johnnie “the Scot” Mundell from Bowmore Whiskey of the Islay region of Scotland, and Christophe Happillon, Master Ecailler of Oyster Gourmet, is capped at 30 people.
And according to Pedro Shanahan, Seven Grand’s Whiskey Society co-curator and Spirit Guide, each of those 30 people is required to bring a poem for entree to the luxe pairing. Shanahan assures the shy that their offering can be read by someone else but emphasizes a poem is mandatory to attend.
Aside from poetic price of admission, the Whiskey Society event is otherwise free to first-timers. After the first event, there’s an annual membership fee. Given the limited number of seats in the Jackalope Room for the night of brine and poesy, you’ll want to grab your spot right away.
There was a young man from L.A.

He dined on Bowmore and oysters galore
And read his fine poem to hoorays.
