Taste of Scotland

April 7, 2018

Take a journey to a Celtic kingdom with our festive Taste of Scotland event. You’ll have the opportunity to attend the “Blended Beauties: World Class Blended Scotches and their Histories” tasting at The Winery Bar or the “Dram and Draft” seminar at the Horse and Plow. We top your day off with an extraordinary custom four-course dinner of Scottish fare created by Whistling Straits head Chef Dan Dries.

Brave souls are encouraged to don their kilts for our take on the traditional Cèilidh! Finally, what would a trip to Scotland be without a round of golf? Book a tee time to play a round on the Old Course at Kohler Swing Studio.
