A dram of
wisdom from a whisky expert for
Christmas food and drink combinations.
We all know that champagne sets off
canapés perfectly, and that white wine
and fish is the perfect partnership, but
how many of us know what foods should be
consumed with whisky?
Made from malted barley, water and
yeast, single malt whiskies like The
Balvenie have long been drunk in the
festive season. But it’s not just an
after-dinner drink – whisky complements
starters, main courses and desserts
equally well, as long as you pair it up
Different aged whiskies work better with
some dishes than others and in the video
below our guests explain how to get the
best out of a whisky during all courses,
from a smoked-salmon starter to the
after-dinner chocolates. How much water,
if any, should you add to your glass?
What do the aromas tell you about the
whisky, and how can they enhance the
flavour of food?
In the following video, The Balvenie
whisky expert Andrew Forrester guides
you through the best dishes to pair
various whiskies with, ensuring that the
enjoyment of your Christmas dram doesn’t
have to begin once the meal is over.
