I’ve presented whisky tastings in a variety of spectacular settings, but not even one of the cavernous boiler rooms on the Queen Mary can match this one!
Open to the general public, guests will enjoy five fine single malts in the oldest, darkest, deepest, quietest, and largest dry cavern in the world. We’ll be 220 feet below the earth’s surface, in a cavern 65 million years old, in a room that is 200 feet wide, 400 feet long with a 70 foot ceiling. The cavern contains no life forms; nothing lives in the caverns, not a fly, not a mouse, a bat, bug or any other creepy crawly. Nothing. The only thing moving or breathing will be us! The air is incredibly dry and clean, coming into the cavern via 65 miles of limestone crevices from the Grand Canyon. Limestone takes all the moisture and impurities out of the air.
A hospitality area, featuring a library of books and magazines from the 1800s and a working record player (WITH records!) is adjacent to comfortable theatre-style seating where the whisky presentation will unfold. Expertly prepared food, paired with each whisky, will be served.
Located as close as you can get to “the middle of nowhere”, Grand Cavern Canyons is located on Historic Route 66, near Peach Springs, Arizona, about 90 minutes west of Flagstaff and about 60 minutes northeast of Kingman, Arizona. An inn and restaurant are within a mile of the caverns.
