A taste of the Isle of Skye with Talisker at michelin-starred Angler this autumn
This autumn, prepare to sample the quintessential flavours of Scotland as of one the nation’s finest Scotch brands team up with michelin-starred Angler at the South Place Hotel to create the Talisker Whisky Terrace. The collaboration will bring a taste of the Isle of Skye to the city within the setting of one of London’s best restaurants.
On offer at the terrace will be a list of specially crafted cocktails such as Campfire Hot Chocolate (Talisker 10yr, oat milk, golden syrup, water, cocoa powder, dark chocolate buttons), Strawberry Skye 75 (Talisker Skye, prosecco, strawberry and raspberry purée, heather honey syrup) and the Foragers Old Fashioned (Talisker Storm, dash black walnut bitters, dash Angostura bitters, fig jam, honey syrup, mineral water). On top of this, small dishes will be available courtesy of executive chef Gary Foulkes, featuring seasonal, carefully sourced produce.
For those wanting to learn a bit more about what to do with their whiskey, or connoisseurs wanting to expand their repertoire, the terrace will also be holding two masterclasses on 9th October and 6th November.
This cocktail masterclass is perfect for anyone who wants to forget their urban environment for a while and reconnect with the vibrant flavours of the natural world. A Talisker brand ambassador will take you through a couple of cocktails, teaching you about the whisky, the wild ingredients and where each element originated from. Then it’s up to you to choose your favourite so that you can learn to make it for yourself.
The Terrace, which launched on Wednesday 18th September, is open from Monday-Friday (Noon-11pm) and on Saturdays (3pm-11pm) until mid-November.
