I have been so busy trying to get my pub up and running that my whisky tastings had to take a back seat. I am now combining the two and offering, for the first time, a whisky dinner at The Arc which will be fully prepared by myself and my second cook, "Uncle Nick".
Yes, we had a big dinner during the Munich Whisky Festival, but this was prepared by a professional TV Chef. This one is all on our own
So, the menu and whiskies aren't yet fully decided, but our preliminary thoughts are for something like:
Aperitif / Welcome dram
An Cnoc 1991, 1993 or Royal Brackla
Green asparagus served with salad / Bruichladdich Waves or even a Links
Smoked Salmon and a beef ham or beef carpaccio served with slightly minted, new potatoes / Connemara Cask Strength
Turkey steak, apricot, peach and apple sauce, cranberries and served with a basmati and wild rice / Glenlivet 18y or Nadurra CS
Individual sherry trifle / Mortlach F&F or a Glenfarclas ... or similar
Home-made fudge / Aberlour A'Bunadh
We hope to finalise the offerings in the next week and then details will be posted on the pub and whisky-emporium websites.
