MKG127 is pleased to host the launch for
A Drink To Us (When We're Both Dead),
an edition by
Dave Dyment

Sunday December 21, 2008 from 3-6 PM


Working with the staff at the Glenfiddich Distilleries, Dyment created a reinforced barrel, filled it with uncut spirit and buried it in Warehouse 8, among large stones from the river Fiddich. It will be excavated in 2108. This whisky is being pre-sold now, though it will not be available to drink for 100 years. Buyers will receive an extruded wood casket housed in a linen box, a map of the warehouse, a small diary documenting the process, and a contract to pass on to their descendants to collect the whisky in a hundred years time. "A Drink To Us (When We're Both Dead)" is available in an edition of 25 copies.

More information on the project can be seen here: http://www.dave-dyment.com/a-drink-to-us-when-were-both-dead/

A representative from Glenfiddich will be on hand at the launch, serving Scotch.
