RANBIR SANGHERA Like Glenﬁ ddich 14, visionary entrepreneur Sanghera embodies and embraces the bold American spirit. CELLISTA Mercurial and complex, Glenﬁ ddich 15 plays the same tune as artist Cellista’s rich musical compositions. galleries like Anno Domini, Cellista is enthusiastic about sharing her music in unpredictable ways. “I have been enjoying the eclectic character of the area,” she says of San Jose. “You really see the true innovative spirit of Silicon Valley in the art scene.” Finding San Jose, Cellista’s first full-length album, is a many-layered work, as nuanced as Cellista and as delicate, complex, and rich as Glenfiddich 15. Curator Brad Johnson, the poised and passionate individual who cultivates the membership program at San Francisco’s Wingtip, is the perfect blend of Don Draper and Hugh Jackman. Johnson identifies with Glenfiddich 18, an elegant and specific small batch reserve crafted from select barrels. Distinguished and slightly astringent with darker flavor notes and a tannic, dried-cranberry finish, the 18 is prized by patrons like Johnson who know what they like. “Glenfiddich was the first Scotch I was ever introduced to,” says Johnson. “The 18 Year Old Small Batch Reserve is one of my go-tos. It represents the model of what a great whisky should be.” Johnson is well acquainted with the importance of premium discernment and the value of maintaining a classic sense of style. “I believe in investing in quality and opting for the timeless over the trendy,” says Johnson. Brand Ambassador Jennifer Wren is quite possibly the human embodiment of Glenfiddich’s illustrious and unexpectedly spicy 21 Year Old Gran Reserva. A cocktail scene maven who knows a great spirit when she sees one, Wren is a diehard for this rare dram, which utilizes rum-infused casks, smells like butterscotch, and finishes dry and spicy. “There’s a lot more going on beneath the surface than you’d imagine,” says the former stage actress. Wren found her current employment “mostly by fortunate accident” and now considers herself “one of the luckiest women in the world,” spending much of her workweek expressing what she loves about Glenfiddich and educating others on her favorite subject: whisky. Sipped and savored on its own or mixed into hand-crafted cocktails, Glenfiddich can be found at restaurants, lounges, bars, and fine beverage outlets throughout the Bay Area.
