Clans and Drams Whisky Month

THE SCOTTISH MALT Whisky Society are hosting a plethora of mouth watering food and drink events across Edinburgh throughout May to showcase the finest of Scottish produce.

My colleague Paul Owen will be representing the finest Scottish farmhouse cheeses at a few of these events and has worked with the experts from the Scottish Malt Whisky Society to pair some exceptional whiskys to various cheeses.

You can visit Paul at the World Whisky Day Feast Fair on May 17 at The Vaults in Leith, which will feature great Scottish food producers such as: The Buffalo Farm; Findlay's of Portbello haggis; Crombie's of Edinburgh; beers from the Inveralmond Brewery; Caorunn Gins and renowned mixologist Stuart McCluskey.

On May 21st Paul will join forces with various other top artisan producers and the team at The Dining Room, where guests will be treated to a five-course meal paired with an exceptional dram with each course. Chef and whisky ambassador James Freeman will introduce each course in what promises to be a real feast of Scotland's finest food and drink.  Tickets for this event are priced at £59.

There are many more excellent events being held over the city; for a full list of events and further details visit:
