The Glenfiddich cocktail dome which not only had three craft drinks, but also was cold af due to blasting air conditioning – which was a nice break during the day.
The Glenfiddich dome featured these contraptions which let you taste the Scotch Whiskey by breathing the steamed alcohol in through your mouth.
