CHICAGO – April 13, 2012– R.S. Owens is proud to host The Balvenie Rare Craft Roadshow, May 2, during their tour across America.
The Balvenie is committed to the artisan community and celebrates crafts throughout America with their Rare Craft Roadshow. The show honors craftspeople who perpetuate time-honored artistic traditions with a nationwide tour and record of the visit on their roadshow website.
The Balvenie is the only distillery in Scotland that stays true to all of the rare crafts of traditional whisky production. Experience is the benchmark of creativity and their malt master, David Stewart, is celebrating his 50th year at the distillery.
R.S.Owens is one of only a handful of manufacturers that still casts and 24 karat gold electroplates in the USA. Soon, they will be celebrating their 75th year in operation (in 2013) with not one, but two valued employees who recently celebrated their 50th anniversaries with the company and are still going strong!
We are excited to host a visit with The Balvenie Tour and meet kindred spirits of like-minded artisans this May!
