Whiskey, cigars, custom suits and handmade automobiles.
Sounds like something out of a 1930s era movie, but that will be the scene at Casa Fuente on Monday from noon-8 p.m. inside the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace and at Stitched at the Cosmopolitan 9-11 p.m. Tuesday.
Balvenie Distillery has sent two of its brand ambassadors to the United States with a trunk full of Scotch and a handmade Plus 8 classic-style roadster from Morgan Motor Company,
While the Plus 8 is handcrafted in England and the oft-awarded Scotch distillery Balvenie is obviously from Scotland (a requirement to be called Scotch), the event is an ode to rare American craftsmanship and is part of The Balvenie Rare Craft Road Show.
Brand ambassadors Nicholas Pollachi and Andrew Weir have made stops around the country showing off the car and that trunk-load of Scotch we mentioned. In stops such as New York City, Miami and even Nacogdoches, Texas, they have celebrated rare craftsmanship like custom wooden boats and American white oak barrels.
Their stop in Las Vegas is twofold. At Casa Fuente, which features primarily hand-rolled cigars from Arturo Fuente’s factory in the Dominican Republic, the event is about Balvenie Scotch. Guests can enter a free raffle to win a bottle of The Balvenie Select Barrel Reserve 15-Year and there will be specials throughout the day on Balvenie.
To fulfill the American craftsmanship portion of their mission, Belvanie will also stop by Stiched. Those looking to step up their wardrobe — or their game — will find the bespoke suits at Stitched beyond anything they can find on the rack at a department store. Suits are custom made with every detail from button layout to thread color up to the customer.
And of course bottles of Belvanie will be on hand at Stitched as well in their whiskey lounge.
With all of this classic action going we wouldn’t be surprised if we saw Clark Gable’s ghost enjoying Belvanie on the rocks. And, frankly, we don’t give a damn if he lights up a cigar either.
