NEW LEADER FOR ASHANTILLY'S ANNUAL SCOTCH WHISKY TASTING!

Ashantilly Center celebrates Scottish Heritage Month (March) with an annual Scotch Whisky Tasting. Tim Rutherford, our friend and supporter for many years, moved to Asheville NC and was not availble to lead this tasting. Vince Becker, of Habersham's Liquors in Savannah, came to the rescue! Vince did a great job of teaching participants about the finer qualities of this rich Scottish tradition. And give a shoutout to Habersham's for their generous discounts that helped make this fund-raiser successful!
