Couple of years back I was invited to the launch of Harley-Davidson store in Bangalore which is known as Tusker Harley-Davidson store. Black Dog Scotch Whisky was proud partner of the showroom launch as Black Dog is always associated with most classy and aspirational events in India. Harley-Davidson riders liked enjoying a glass of smooth Scotch like Black Dog after they reached their destination. They don’t approve of drunken riding or driving and urge people to drink responsibly. The store was well decorated with not just Harley-Davidson motorcycles but also Harley-Davidson gear and merchandise which is very rare to find in any other shops around the world! My friend Raghu and me chilled out with a glass of smooth Black Dog Whisky on the rocks and enjoyed the tour of the store and also checking out the variety of items available there.
There were many components of Harley-Davidson available here which are not available easily in India in case you have problems with your bike. We loved checking Harley-Davidson bikes like Fatboys and CVOs. Some of the biking gear were collectors’ items! I had been to Harley-Davidson showrooms in Johannesburg and New York and the layout of the showroom, equipment and bikes available here were almost as same as that! Only a world class quality brand like Black Dog Scotch Whisky could be associated with a legendary brand like Harley-Davidson. It was like a Scottish legend joining hands with an American legend! The celebrities, socialites and passionate bikers enjoyed the unique blend of Black Dog Scotch Whisky 12 year old and 18 year old and remarked on the smoothness and rich color of the drink. There were some yummy starters to be enjoyed along with Black Dog Scotch Whisky. Guests took pictures with the bikes and I also joined the bandwagon by taking some pictures with some Harley-Davidson Fatboys!
First set of buyers from Tusker Harley-Davidson, who were possibly the first official buyers in India, were applauded and were treated to first round of Black Dog Scotch to celebrate their achievement and passion. There were bikers from popular motorcycling community site xBHP.com who rode on their Ducatis to come and check out the Harleys! Everyone was enjoying Black Dog Scotch on the rocks – just the way bikers like it! Few were even drinking Black Dog Scotch Whisky without adding anything as they felt it spoiled the unique blend if they added anything! Yet again Black Dog Scotch proved itself to be an organizer of World Class events in India!
