The Bill Pilgati Collection
Pat acquired this blend from the revered Bill Pilgati Collection. The Pilgati family owned the famous Del Rio bar and restaurant in Chicago since the 1920s, and it amassed a significant collection of spirits over the years. Of these, the majority were blended Scotch, mostly acquired in the 1940s and 1950s when the category was incredibly popular, partcicularly in the United States.
