Are you a Scotch whisky lover but find it difficult to pair your favourite dram with food? Food pairings can help elevate the whisky tasting experience, opening up new flavours and delicious contrasts. Read on to discover five simple food and whisky pairings from Royal Salute, for you to enjoy with friends and family this summer.
1. Dark chocolate
Pair your whisky with dark chocolate for a bittersweet flavour to bring out the sweet, dry oak notes of Royal Salute’s 21-Year-Old Signature Blend. We recommend pairing your whisky with a high-quality dark chocolate containing 70% cocoa solids or more.
Fruits and berries such as strawberries pair very well with light, floral whiskies like Royal Salute’s 21-Year-Old Signature Blend. The sweet strawberry flavour wonderfully complements the whisky’s delicate notes of vanilla and clove spice.
