Glengoyne is the perfect match for Let's Eat Glasgow :: Let’s East Glasgow festival :: 3rd September, 2015
Some of Glasgow’s top chefs are joining Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky this weekend (5-6 September) to offer the ultimate whisky food pairings at the Let’s East Glasgow festival.
To help celebrate the first event of its kind, Glasgow’s top chefs are expertly matching the powerful flavour credentials of Glengoyne malts with home-cooked dishes from popular city eateries.
From mouth-watering lamb meatballs from Ox and Finch paired with the Glengoyne 18Year Old, to Roast Renfrewshire wood pigeon from The Ubiquitous Chip joining the Glengoyne 15Year Old, whisky aficionados need look no further for the perfect food pairings.
Located just outside the city, Glengoyne Distillery is the event’s only whisky sponsor. Featuring over 40 top artisan producers and social enterprises, Let’s East Glasgow is the first pop-up restaurant and food market of its kind to take place in the city under one roof.
From meat and poultry and fish to cheese and alcoholic beverages, Let’s Eat Glasgow looks set to be a food lover’s dream.
Neil Boyd, Commercial Director of Malts for Ian Macleod Distillers who own Glengoyne, said: “Let’s Eat Glasgow is the ideal event for us to showcase how successful pairing Glengoyne with food can be.
“Glengoyne food pairings work so well because of its versatility, with each of its seven expressions having different flavour characteristics.
“We’re delighted to be working with some of Scotland’s most talented chefs at Let’s Eat Glasgow to pair some stunning dishes with their perfect malt partner. We’re confident that we can inspire food and drink lovers to find their favourite whisky pairing and start experimenting with food and whisky at home.”
