Whisky & Food Pairing Live Tasting

October 30, 2020

Join us for another ‘Whisky & Food Pairing Live Tasting’ on Thursday 26th November 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 can order your whisky tasting packs from our online shop.

You’re welcome to join the live tasting with just the drams, however, you now have the chance to try something different.  Over the last few months we have been pairing Kilchoman with a variety of fantastic foods from on our doorstep in Scotland! From highland venison to island cheese and west coast seafood, we have teamed up with some great Scottish producers to complement our whiskies.

For the tasting on the 26th November, we will be pairing Kilchoman with a variety of delicious chocolates! We will be changing the theme and having an international feel to this months tasting, collaborating with Edinburgh based company COCO who work with cacao farmers across Colombia. The cacao beans are processed into different chocolate products which travel all the way to Edinburgh where their team of chocolatiers works them into chocolate products. We have chosen; Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate, Colombian Dark 61% Chocolate, Isle of Skye Sea Salt & Lime Milk Chocolate and Haggis Spice Dark Chocolate to pair with Kilchoman.
