The White House Historical Association celebrates with the Spirit of Arbikie
Arbikie’s world class ‘farm to bottle spirits’ took centre stage in Washington, D.C. at a recent White House Historical Association event celebrating the 2016 Official White House Christmas Ornament, which honours the thirty-first U.S. President Herbert Hoover (1929-1933). The evening cigar event featured two Arbikie cocktails highlighting the our signature vodka and chilli vodka.
The event was hosted in the Association’s historic Decatur House Courtyard on Lafayette Square just steps from the White House. Stewart D. McLaurin, President of the White House Historical Association, remarked “The Arbikie signature vodka cocktails were a perfect complement to the celebratory evening. We were pleased to incorporate the family-owned Arbikie products into our event highlight President Hoover’s appreciation for cigars and the White House Christmas Ornament in his honor”.
The White House Historical Association is a non-profit educational organization with a mission to enhance the understanding and appreciation of the White House in Washington, D.C. U.S. First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy founded the Association in 1961 to help the White House collect and exhibit the very best artifacts of American history and culture.
David Stirling commented “It was a great honour and privilege for our family to be involved at such a special occasion. The audience loved learning about the history of the farm, our provenance and our ability to trace our spirits back to the exact field. The fact that we use our own source of Scottish Highland water, home grown ingredients and that all of our spirits are distilled from scratch really resonated with them. Of course our award winning the spirits themselves went down well! It was a terrific experience”.
