Whisky & Food Pairing Live TastingJuly 20, 2020
Join us for another ‘Whisky & Food Pairing Live Tasting’ on Thursday 6th August at 7pm.
Following on from the huge success of our first whisky and food pairing with Great Glen Charcuterie, we are continuing the theme with more great foods produced from here on our doorstep in Scotland. In the next live tasting we will be pairing our whiskies with delicious west coast seafood from Gigha Halibut who are just across the water from us here on Islay.
Smoked to order, your Gigha Halibut fish is carefully selected and harvested, then allowed to rest with the fillets cured for a day. They are traditionally smoked using oak chips made from ex-Kilchoman casks, the peaty aromas bringing the best out in the Smoked Gigha Halibut. As always, you are welcome to join the live tastings with just the drams in the tasting pack, now available on the website shop, or you can choose to get the full whisky and food pairing experience from the comfort of your own home.
Click HERE to order your Smoked Gigha Halibut and find out more about how they source and produce their fish. Gigha Halibut are kindly offering a 10% discount for Kilchoman whisky fans to use on all products available on their online shop. Use the code KILCHOMAN to claim your discount. *(Orders should be placed by Wednesday 29th July).
The tasting will be broadcast live on Facebook, Instagram and Youtube at 7pm UK time on Thursday 6th August. We hope you can pour yourself a dram and join us and please send in your questions and comments during the tasting. Recordings will be available afterwards for anyone who would like to catch up at a later time.
