Glenfiddich, the Maverick Whisky Makers of Dufftown, has never followed where the path leads, but instead where there is no path and has left a trail for others to follow.
This year’s maverick campaign coined ‘The Circle of Mavericks’ kicked off with an invite-only event in Abuja on April 5th and in Lagos on April 7th. The event was a celebration of mavericks in different industries with John Boyega as the special guest.
True to the term maverick, Glenfiddich set a trend for fine dining, drinking and entertainment at the intimate affair. A rapid transportation into the world of Jazz, exceptional whisky and cigars, the event was like no other.
Guests in Abuja enjoyed a three-course dinner of caviar, beetroot salmon, slow cooked lamb, Glenfiddich infused chicken breasts and other special delicacies with talented Saxophonist Abbey Sax playing in the background to ensure the perfect mood all night long. Fusing the elegance of the 1800’s with the upbeat tempo of this century, the black-tie event saw guests showing up dressed to the nines. The affair saw celebrities and influencers networking, dancing and having a great time
