Introduce your whisky pairing dinner with a sumptuous starter set to impress. Your first course should be light, simple and delicious, just like the drink you serve it with.
Lighter whiskys such as our The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve pair well with equally light dishes. Notes of pear and citrus fruit offer a sweet, silky finish, best served over ice or with a dash of water. Why not teach your guests how to taste whisky before they take a sip?
This course is where seafood shines. Serve smoked salmon, creamy crayfish or grilled scallops dripping in butter. Traditionalists can’t go wrong with a tangy prawn cocktail, best enjoyed with a glass of The Glenlivet Distiller’s Reserve.
Don’t eat fish? No problem. There’s plenty of options to tempt your tastebuds. Char asparagus stems with plenty of salt, or drizzle olive oil over a generous portion of sweet, tomatoey bruschetta.
