This week, we caught up with our Kingsbarns Senior Brand Manager and Balcomie Super Fan, Hannah Peebles to get the lowdown on which foods paired beautifully with our lowland single malt whisky, Kingsbarns Balcomie.
Green & Black's Velvet Edition; Dark Chocolate with Raspberry & Hazelnut
The velvety feel of this hazelnut-infused chocolate, alongside the bursts of raspberry bring out the soft, red berry notes and hazelnut finish of Balcomie.
IJ Mellis Auld Reekie Cheese
IJ Mellis' Auld Reekie Cheese has been smoked over whisky barrels which gives it a lovely creamy and smoky taste, working in perfect harmony with the smoothness of Balcomie.
The Drinks Bakery's Mature Cheddar, Chilli & Almond biscuits
The perfect pairing with a neat dram, The Drinks Bakery's Cheddar, Chilli & Almond biscuits undercoat the warming, fruity spice of Balcomie. These biscuits are made with cheddar from the St Andrews Farmhouse, only a few miles up the road from Kingsbarns Distillery.
Blackberry & Apple Crumble
This warm dessert marries together the key notes of Balcomie exceptionally well; the apple brings out the signature Kingsbarns fruity spirit, the blackberries showcase Balcomie's Oloroso-sherry cask finish, and the oat crumble brings out the roasted hazelnut finish. Get the recipe.
