McLadden's Is the Perfect Spot to Celebrate National Scotch Day!

National Scotch Day is this Wednesday, July 27th!

At McLadden's, we are extremely proud of our Single Malt Scotch Whiskey collection, and not simply because of the number of selections (around 75).

The range, quality and diverse distilleries from which they originate makes our collection arguably one of the finest that you will ever find anywhere.

So, when you're wanting a wee tipple of the "water of life" to celebrate National Scotch Day this week, pop 'round to your local McLadden's!

    Compass Box Whisky Master Class 2016


    We were honored to attend the Compass Box Master Whisky Class, taught by Compass Box's founder, John Glaser.  The whiskymakers at Compass Box push the envelope, at times straying from tradition in efforts to offer whisky drinkers the best experience possible.    

    The event was put on by our friends at Connecticut Distributors, and held at Krust in Middletown.  We sampled six different whiskys, including some of their limited edition items, while John told us the incredible story of how Compass Box came to be.

    John realized that while traditional scotch whisky is near perfection, more could be done.  He began experimenting and blending bottles at home, and the results excited him.  Scotch was known as "your grandfather's drink," and the younger generations were missing out.   No one had entered the market in decades, and few had attempted to market to a new demographic, but he truly believed that by creating the right blends, and branding them in the right way, he could help introduce more people to the world of scotch whisky.

     John began by crafting scotch blends in his home as gifts for friends, and later began selling bottles out of his backpacks to bar owners in London, (all of this is quite legal there!) Eventually, people realized he was on to something, and now Compass Box is available in over 30 countries.  It's also available in all of our McLadden's locations... Stop by and try some for yourself!

    Thanks to CDI for the invite, Krust for sharing your beautiful space and serving up an excellent lunch, and John Glaser for a great (educational,) afternoon! 



    Show us some love and Nominate us in's 2nd Annual "Best of West Hartford" Readers Poll!

    Our restaurants are a part of some pretty amazing communities, and our flagship store is proud to be a part of West Hartford!  For the second year in a row, is taking nominations for their "Best Of" poll, and we would be ecstatic if our loyal guests would take a moment from their day and show their support by nominating us for a category or two!  We like to think we have some of the best burgers in town, as well as a pretty sweet happy hour and late night scene.  If you agree, help us spread the word!  Cheers, and thanks in advance!

    50 States Series: Irish Pubs Worth Traveling For

    Still thinking about how much fun you had last month on St. Patrick’s Day? Was there lively Irish music that had you practicing your Irish step dancing moves, or did the taste of that perfectly poured pint of Guinness remind you how much you like the smooth stout after all? Although it might only be acceptable to dress in green from head to-to-toe on St. Patrick’s Day, visiting the local Irish pub in town is something you should add to your regular travel routine.

    Even if a trip to Ireland just isn’t in the cards for you this year, do the next best thing and head to one of FlipKey’s top Irish pubs in the country. You’ll be sure to enjoy yourself over a few beers and learn a bit about the city from a local’s point of view.
