All the Senses

Word of an intriguing new event has come our way. Food event pioneers Jelly & Gin are teaming up with Haig Club single grain scotch whisky (the one of David Beckham fame) to create an immersive whisky cocktail experience. Create:Eat:Whisky will take guests on a journey through different multi-sensory settings and drink cocktails; each designed to match the different environments. Using sound, light, small edible items, aroma and other environmental factors guests will be transported from a mountaintop to a roaring fire, with an unexpected final destination. Tickets (£33) for the events on 14-17 May at Gayfield Creative Spaces in Edinburgh include three whisky cocktails paired with small tastes of food.

As May is Whisky Month, there are plenty of other malt themed events next month, like Whisky Stramash and whisky festivals in Stirling and Speyside. Here are a few of the food and drink events coming up:
