Coming Wednesday January 14th, Biga and Glenfiddich will be presenting a Scotch dinner during this upcoming San Antonio Cocktail Conference.

The Biga chefs have never been happier.  …And who can blame them?  They’ve had an excuse to sample the world’s most awarded Scotch whiskey while on the job!  Poor chefs, they drink, uh…WORK so hard!
