Irish Whiskeys Paired With A Four-Course Menu
Blacktail Florist is excited to host whiskey lovers for an evening of hidden Irish treasures. On November 18th at 7pm, four premium whiskeys will be sampled for the first time in Canada; each of the four chosen liquors were imported directly from Ireland for this special event and will be accompanied by a one-time-only four-course tasting menu by Executive Chef Geoff Rogers. Dishes are designed to complement and counterbalance the historic and comforting whiskey flavours of Ireland.
The evening’s featured whiskeys are Pot Still Irish Whiskeys, a style made from both malted and unmalted barley which is triple-distilled in traditional copper pot stills. The method is commonly known as the quintessential style of Irish whiskey, and these varieties boast complex flavours and a true taste of Irish magic.
Guests will be warmly greeted in true Irish fashion—with a drink! After enjoying a complimentary Jameson Select Reserve cocktail, guests begin their journey through the evening’s main event. For those new to the charms of whiskey or wishing to expand their knowledge, the evening will be guided by a whiskey expert: Midleton Distillery-trained and Jameson Brand Ambassador to BC, Simone Kelly.
The Single Pot Still Dinner is $125 per person (excluding tax and gratuity) which includes a four-course meal paired with samples of four whiskeys. Only 26 tickets will be sold to correspond with the 26oz in each bottle, so interested parties should move quickly to secure their spot.
