With one intention in mind ... to grow their 'gone viral' ScotchBoyzJa parties organically, Harold Williams, Jomo Cato and Alex Chin had their first official event at 'Whisky Beach' in Ocho Rios on Saturday, October 18.

For the last two weeks, the location of this 'By Invitation Only' party remained a secret, with the invitation stating that, by Friday, October 17, all would be revealed.

On Saturday, those who hungered for good music, great vibes, beach life and sun-drenched excitement turned out to party with the crew.

The three ScotchBoyz, drinkers and experts in their own right, were very discerning in their choice of top-shelf label whiskies from around the world, selecting to feature only J. Wray & Nephew brands, Glen Grant, Jameson Irish, American Honey, and Glen Morangie (Wild Turkey).

Jomo Cato tells Outlook that the event was a continuation of the good vibes that started six months ago, and mushroomed into something people have been calling for.

"Every other week, we would do a ScotchBoyz night at each other's home or a bar, we would then post on Instagram and the queries started coming in," he explained.

"We are going to make it grow organically. We are celebrating our passion for life," states Cato.

The only person missing from the actual party was Harold Williams, who became the latest victim of Chik-V, but his wife, Denise, made sure to surround his bed with the empty Whisky bottles.

Williams stayed near enough to hear the clinking of the glasses and the music rocking the evening away.
