The table is set, the relatives are arriving, and some pre-dinner drinks and snacks are in order to get the party started. But what whiskies should you be serving up?
The Society’s variety of single cask whiskies and single cask spirits can provide the perfect accompaniments for whatever nibbles and snacks you’re serving.
Here are some of our suggestions:
SNACK: Olives, nuts
FLAVOUR PROFILE: Single cask armagnac
The richer, deeper notes of the Society’s single cask armagnac are perfect for Christmas, with hints of cinnamon, clove and warming spice matching beautifully with your olives and nuts.
SNACK: Cured meats, chocolate
These decadent flavour profiles work just as well before or after dinner, either with a selection of cured meats or when you break open the Christmas chocolate after your feast and put your feet up.
