Arran and Lagg whisky with Mariella Romano
September 10, 2023 @ 7:00 pm
This event will be FREE (mostly thanks to the sponsored whisky) but please RSVP as it will be at my (Andy Smith) home in Overland Park and I need to know how many people to expect. We will have some snacks but we will be at 7 in case you wish to eat dinner beforehand. The address is 7517 W. 143rd Ter. Overland Park.
Kansas City welcomes Mariella Romano the GLOBAL brand ambassador visiting us from overseas. Mariella will be sharing the story of the Lochranza distillery, whose whisky is named after its Hebridean home, the Isle of Arran. We’ll also try samples from the new Lagg distillery. They aren’t sold in America yet, so we’ll be the first to try them!

Home for Mariella Romano is the sunny, southern part of Italy, however she decided to move all the way up to Scotland to follow her love for Whisky and to live as close as possible to the source of the Water of Life. After a number of years working in different parts of the industry, her dream came true when she was appointed Global Brand Ambassador for the Arran Single Malt in early 2019. Her excitement doubled later in the year when Lagg Distillery ran its stills for the first time and, since then, she has championed this new brand and watched it grow from new make spirit to a fine Single Malt. You can now find her travelling around the world, sharing a dram and her passion for whisky as she spreads the good word of these two wonderful distilleries far and wide.
