Silvano Samaroli, 1939-2017
Silvano Samaroli, 1939-2017

Silvano Samaroli started his working career in the drinks industry and over the ensuing decades established himself as a true legend of the whisky world.

Having established Samaroli Srl Wine and Spirits Merchants in Rome in 1968, he became well known for importing whiskies into Italy throughout the 1970s. In 1979 he released his first series of independent bottlings, and quickly became known for his selections. Through the 1980s he championed the bottling cask-strength whiskies and his releases have become some of the most sought-after bottles on the secondary market.

He passed away at the beginning 2017 and in this masterclass we hope to honour his memory in the best way we can – sharing some of the incredible whiskies that he chose over the years. 

The tasting will be hosted by Emmanuel Dron, friend of Silvano Samaroli, collector of Samaroli bottlings and owner of Singapore's Auld Alliance, one of the world's finest whisky bars.
