Nikki will take you on take you on a whisky journey, exploring malts, blends and world whiskies with all the senses not just taste. She loves playing with whisky to show it in all it's facets, so she'll be mixing it into cocktails, adding extras and showing just how versatile whisky can be by pairing it with different flavours and textures of food.
If you think whisky can only be served as a dram, you're in for a delightful surprise. Nikki will be using the WhiskyTubeMap to guide your journey, but the really important bit is your palate. Can music change whisky's flavour, does whisky taste different if you can't see it, and how do you get the flavour of whisky without the burn - all questions Nikki will answer.
Let Nikki guide you through the myths and truths of whisky with delicious food pairings as you sip and eat your way through the evening.
Our head chef Joe has devised a menu to be enjoyed alongside whiskies selected by Nikki that she will surprise you with on the night. Expect to taste:
- Pickled beetroot, Katy Rodger's crowdie, apple, rye crouton
- Crispy organic chicken skin, crème fraîche
- Our cured organic smoked salmon, tattie scone
- Grilled mackerel, shaved fennel salad, preserved lemon and capers
- Benromach peat-smoked whisky, Mellis honey and oat parfait
The event will take the form of a sit-down meal with a selection of canapés to start, followed by a main course and dessert. Guests will enjoy 6 whiskies on the night: a welcome drink and 5 matched whiskies served as drams, cocktail and mixed drinks.
