Glen Moray Roasted Peaches With Orange Flower Honey and Glen Moray Madeira Cask Project The Whisky Rose Juplep whisky cocktail.

Glen Moray has teamed up with award winning chef Ben Tish to present ‘Cask Stories’ which dives into the world of wood to explore the importance of cask flavour and character of their Glen Moray single malt whisky range.

Ben has created some top restaurant quality Glen Moray influenced food dishes and to wash them down Ben’s long standing head sommelier Julien Hennebelle has collaborated with him to create four long, refreshing Glen Moray cocktails.

Ben says: "This recipe couldn’t be more simple - an assembly really using beautiful, in season summer peaches and giving them a little boost, roasting with honey and olive oil to concentrate the stone fruits natural flavour. The caramelised peach juices and the aromatic honey are a great match for the Madeira cask whisky, working with its own sweet-syrupy taste and notes of spices and dried fruits.

"The best, sweetest peaches come from around the Mediterranean where they are grown and ripened under the baking sun and have a scent of the salty Mediterranean sea. Madeira has the most wonderful peach varieties and I’ve eaten my fair share when researching there for my book Moorish. A local speciality is to grill the peach halves over wood or charcoal which adds a smokiness to the sweet peach flesh. Eating these with something as a simple as a local goats cheese and some toasted nuts is as good as it gets. Except perhaps for a Mediterranean harbour view!"
