Pairing wine with food is something everyone is familiar with, but drinking whisky with your dinner? That might seem a bit unusual, even to seasoned foodies. And yet Scotch, a handcrafted, meticulously produced spirit if ever there was one, makes a beautiful companion for a wide array of foods. Because every whisky has different aromas and flavour characteristics, one could even argue that there is a perfect whisky pairing for any kind of food.
To prove our point, and to celebrate the launch of The Macallan Edition No. 2 — a limited release that was designed by the famous Roca brothers of Spain’s El Cellar de Can Roca — we collaborated with chef Vicky Cheng and mixologists Kirill Runkov and Amanda Wan, of Michelin-starred VEA, to create three very special food and whisky pairings. Watch the video below to see exactly how this unique whisky works perfectly in a fine-dining setting.
