Cheese & Whisky Pairing Night

Cheese & Whisky Pairing Night

Cheese & Whisky pairing

It was our pleasure last Friday to welcome some new customers to our tasting room at Cask Trade HQ. As lockdown is slowly easing this is something that we love to do. At the end of the day, we are all whisky enthusiasts here!

We take any opportunity we have to share our passion and consume some high-quality Single Malt Scotch of course! Whisky actually pairs very well with cheese. Therefore, a quick trip to the local delicatessen (many advantages to having Mayfair and Soho on your doorstep) saw five kinds of cheese matched with five delicious single cask bottlings.

Cheese & Whisky pairing

In no particular order, we enjoyed whisky from Ardmore paired with Gorgonzola, Glen Moray with stilton, Glenrothes with brie and Royal Brackla paired with Cornish Yarg and mature cheddar. We then finished off with a very special 23-year-old Sherry Cask bottling from the wonderful Speyside Distillery. (Thanks again Simon!).

A very memorable evening was had by all and finally a special thank you to our customers for attending and our Cask Trade hosts Simon, Jess & Phil.

Cheese & Rum Pairing Night

Cheese and rum; a match made in heaven?

Perhaps seen as an unlikely pairing, when combined they complement each other perfectly – just ask the Masters, who hosted a delightful evening sampling some fine rums and rather decadent cheeses.

The line-up consisted of an eclectic mix from around the world; Chaource paired with Guyana Diamond (Port Mourant Still) 11 YO; truffled brie with Jamaican Clarendon Estate 13 YO; Mrs. Bell’s Blue with a Nicaragua 17 YO chaser and Barbadian Foursquare 12 YO paired with a french comté. There were also some bonus rums on the menu including Foursquare Principia and a Dictado 38-year-old
A good time was certainly enjoyed by all!
