Launching Now at The Gables’ Bar: Scotch, Bourbon Flights

Yes, flights. We’re now offering scotch and bourbon flights!

Blame our love for “the water of life” on our owner Ann Kolenick’s grandfather. More like a huge thanks to Papa Dino, who lived to be nearly 103. (A coincidence? We think not.) Ann distinctly remembers him and her sister-in-law, Michelle, lingering at the Christmas Eve table as he taught her how to drink it. Watching them sample those small sips left an impression! Ann’s father, too, loves his single malts and has built a small collection—in fact, Ann and husband, Dan, gifted him a scotch full of powerful peaty notes this past Christmas. You can say sampling flights runs in the family.

At The Gables at Chadds Ford, you’re in charge of your flight—including the price. It’s four 1-oz. pours of your choosing, making it a personalized experience, right down to what works with your wallet. Our knowledgeable bartenders can help guide you if you’re new to scotch and bourbon or if you’re seasoned and want to bust into something different.

We’re always on the lookout for great bottles, so come in often to see what’s on the shelf. But you might find the likes of …
