Whisky & Food Pairing Live TastingJune 30, 2020
Join us for a ‘Whisky & Food Pairing Live Tasting’ on Thursday 9th July 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. Tasting packs are now on sale from our website. Click here to purchase.
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 9th July, we will be pairing four varieties of delicious salami and chorizos from Great Glen who specialise in producing charcuterie using only wild Scottish Venison. You can get the full whisky and food pairing experience from the comfort of your own home. Order the chosen venison salami and the 3 varieties of chorizo (venison, venison & pork and the chilli & venison) ahead of the tasting then you’re all set to join us live.
