Compass Box Scotch Whiskymakers believes that whisky isn’t just for sipping or having with ice at the end of a meal, but that it can be an integral part of and complement the dining experience.
This Christmas, when deciding on your menu, be creative and look at your recipes through ‘the Compass Box Lens.’!
Compass Box – The Story of the Spaniard is rich, fruity and decadent and based around malt whiskies aged in Spanish Sherry and red wine casks.
Whisky pairs really well with chocolate as the alcohol helps to emulsify the fat content, which increases the creaminess of the mouthfeel and enhances the flavour. The more Sherry maturation your whisky exhibits, the better it will go with darker chocolates.
The Spaniard can be used to create a delicious highball; we suggest using ginger ale and sipping whilst slowly melting dark chocolate in your mouth.
RRP: £51.00 for a 70cl bottle. ABV: 43%
Compass Box – The Spice Tree is a rich, intense malt whisky evoking baking spices with toasty oak accents which complement the underlying character.
With fruity notes and hints of clove and ginger, The Spice Tree makes a great Old Fashioned cocktail with an orange peel twist and would pair beautifully with gingery chocolate and satsumas.
RRP: £48.95 for a 70cl bottle. ABV: 46%
Compass Box – The Peat Monster is perfect for those who love big, rich, smoky-peaty malts. This elegant whisky combines the smokiness of a driftwood fire with orchard fruits and rich cask-derived creaminess.
The Peat Monster is delicious with smoked foods, or sipped neat whilst cracking a festive selection of nuts; a delightful way to spend the end of the day, whilst sitting by the fire!
RRP: £46.75 for a 70cl bottle. AVB: 46%
