An Evening with John Glaser of Compass Box Scotch at The Crunkleton

  • The Crunkleton 320 W Franklin St Chapel Hill, NC, 27516 United States (map)

It is a tremendous honor to welcome John Glaser, Founder of Compass Box Whisky, to The Crunkleton for a special evening on Wednesday, November 5th. The American ex-pat and entrepreneur started Compass Box in 2000, and since been widely recognized as one of the leading innovators in the Scotch industry. The London-based Compass Box has won dozens of awards from "Innovator of the Year" to "Worlds Best Scotch Blended Malt" and "Best New Scotch Brand". I booked this event with John over a year and a half ago and have been waiting in anticipation ever since. Frankly, I thought hosting him at The Crunkleton to guide us through a tasting of his whisky was too much to ask for such a huge talent, but John's graciousness and enthusiasm for our bar and his whisky set the stage for a "once in a lifetime" like event.

Join us on Wednesday, November 5th at 7pm for an evening with John Glaser and Compass Box Scotch. John will lead us through his Peat Monster, Asyla, Oak Cross, Orangerie, The Spice Tree, and King Street Blend whisky. Come out and enjoy his scotch, meet the maker, and have any of your Compass Box Whisky questions answered.

Tickets for this event are $80 per person with a limited number of seats available. Email me at to reserve your seat.
