Whisky & Food Pairing Live TastingAugust 31, 2020
Join us for another ‘Whisky & Food Pairing Live Tasting’ on Thursday 17th September at 7pm.
Taste along with your Kilchoman Tasting Glass as we take you through our Core Range of whiskies, explaining how we make each whisky and what unique character and flavours can be found in each dram.
You’re welcome to join the live tasting with just the drams, however, you now have the chance to try something different. Over the next few months we will be pairing Kilchoman with a variety of fantastic foods, and where better to look than on our doorstep in Scotland! From highland venison to island cheese and west coast seafood, we’ll be teaming up with some great Scottish producers to complement our whiskies.
For the tasting on the 17th September, we will be pairing a selection of cheeses from Isle of Mull Cheese, a family run business on Sgiob-ruadh Farm. Similarly to whisky making being a long standing tradition within Scotland, so too is cheese making and this tradition is still very much alive on the Isle of Mull. Being a small family run business, Isle of Mull Cheese have complete control over their production enabling them to ensure the highest quality cheese is produced for customers. All of the cheese is made with unpasteurised milk from their hardy, healthy, island cows fed on grass and whisky grains from the Tobermory Distillery.

The tasting will be broadcast live on Facebook and Youtube at 7pm UK time on Thursday 17th September. 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.

Why Choose Dunnage Warehouses?
At Kilchoman we mature all our casks in traditional dunnage warehouses here on the west coast of Islay. Not only is the type of warehouse important to the character of a whisky but also the location, with each cask absorbing all the microclimatic differences Islay has to offer.
