Think whisky and chocolate. Then think about whisky in chocolate. Then think about eating whisky in chocolate while drinking whisky. We know, it sounds like a match made in whisky heaven.
Balvenie produces a range of spectacular whisky in a very traditional style. Produced in Speyside's Dufftown, Balvenie whisky-making process is dedicated to maintaining the Five Rare Crafts. It's the only distillery in Scotland that still grows it's own barley using traditional floor maltings and keeps both a coppersmith and coopers on site.
Chocolatier Steven Ter Horst is an East End neighbour and one we love working with. He says “the only thing better than a friend, is a friend with chocolate”, so we promptly made friends with him! His chocolates are world class and he is no stranger to pairing them with booze. Steven will be making the chocolates to perfectly match each whisky, even using the whisky in his recipes. He tries to play the matching off as hard work, but we will let you guys be the judges of that!
This is one not to miss! Come into NOLA and listen to Steven Ter Horst and Balvenie Brand Ambassador Ross Blainey take you through some of the finer things in life.
