In the lead up to World Whisky Day (21st May) – when whisky lovers around the globe raise a dram to their cherished nectar – scotch whisky brand R&B Distillers are teaming up with dessert bar Basement Sate to for an indulgent evening of desserts and whisky tasting on Wednesday 18th May.

Yuzu, liquorice and lavender may be unexpected flavour companions to a glass of fine single malt but both brands are keen to explore the playful flavour connections that can be forged between whisky and dessert.

Steering clear of Cranachan, Basement Sate have concocted a duo of, bespoke desserts which will be paired with drams of R&B Distillers’ single malt While We Wait and single grain Borders. Noses and palates will be put to the test and members from both teams will be on hand to explain the pairings while co-founder of R&B, Alasdair Day, will initiate guests into the brand’s fascinating heritage.

Whether you are keen to impress a date with your whisky knowledge or looking for a more unusual way to end your next dinner party, the evening at Basement Sate will inspire seasoned whisky drinkers and newcomers to the spirit to creatively enjoy whisky this World Whisky Day.
