Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery has launched an indulgent Whisky and Chocolate Tasting Tour with a difference.
A twist on the popular tasting craze, the tour replaces flavoured chocolates with single origin dark chocolate discs, allowing the cocoa to lead the flavour. The distillery claims this is the perfect accompaniment to its fine Scotch whisky range.
The chocolates have been sourced by local chocolatier Charlotte Flower, from Africa, Asia and Central America, and the final decision as to which would be chosen was made by Dewar’s Master Blender, Stephanie Macleod.
The Whisky and Chocolate Tasting Tour runs every morning at 10am (except Sunday) and comprises a full guided tour of Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery, warehouse and interactive heritage exhibition. Saving the best until last, it concludes with the indulgent and flavourful pairing experience in the stunning Whisky Lounge.
UK Brand Homes Manager Charlotte Brown said: “We’re very excited to have teamed up with chocolatier Charlotte Flower to launch our brand new Whisky and Chocolate Tasting Tour, and she has sourced some of the most excellent chocolate from around the world to create the perfect pairing.”
“It’s taken a lot of very arduous tasting to find the perfect combination, but we’re confident we’ve ended up with the ultimate ‘win-win’ scenario.”
The Whisky and Chocolate Tour lasts for two hours and costs £23 per person.
