In Good Spirits
Just in time for end-of-summer celebrations, the creators of the best-selling single-malt Scotch whiskey, Glenfiddich, introduce their Experimental Series. Traditionally matured in rum, whiskey, and sherry casks depending on the flavor profile, Glenfiddich recently released the first Scotch whiskey finished in casks infused with the flavors of India Pale Ale beer. The resulting Glenfiddich India Pale Ale Experiment has caramel-like top notes and a gentle hoppy richness, almost a bridge between Scotch and bourbon. Then, inviting 20 single-malt Scotch experts from all over the world to sample their stores and choose their favorite barrels, Glenfiddich created Project XX, a delicious combination of all of barrels in one distinctive bottle. Don’t miss out on your chance to experience the grand experiment. For details, visit glenfiddich.com

After operating in LaGrange for 67 years, the flooring experts at DeSitter Carpet and Flooring Showroom prepare to relocate to a new and larger showroom—Glen Ellyn Tile and Flooring Gallery. While the LaGrange location will continue to serve the area, the amazing new showroom in Glen Ellyn will offer more projects on display, more vignettes, and enhanced design assistance. Both locations will feature carpets and rugs, hardwood, luxury vinyl plank, and more, but the Glen Ellyn location will expand upon the original offerings. “With the continuing industry trend and demand for hard surfaces, we increased and improved the space dedicated to hardwood, LVT, tile, and stone at our Glen Ellyn showroom,” said co-owner Steve DeSitter. “This showroom is under one roof, and it’s a source of pride for all of us.” DeSitter Tile and Stone Gallery is at 444 Roosevelt Road in Glen Ellyn, 630-504-2377, desitterflooring.com.
