It’s been a busy year. I’ve already been to one Whisky showcase event at the Larder House this year, along with a Gin night, pig butchery night and a seafood feast night. This whiskey night was going to venture further away from the glens of Scotland to different and hotter climates around the world, with explanations on how that can affect the ageing process.
This time it would be Jon Lister and Stephanie Holt from Speciality Brands to compere and guide us through the evening.
I've already written pieces on this year's other whisky night and the gin night so you can read up on how far James and the Larder House team really push things. It's not just a night of sitting down to great food and drink, it is a full on theatrical evening with audience participation.
On entering the restaurant we found that the tables had been moved out, which is not unusual but found the room all decorated in a Japanese style with white fabric screening, a huge tree branch stretching across the room and deftly folded origami swans hanging off the tree all made by Megan's own hands.
I had a sneaky preview of a brilliant new creation made for the weekend but will leave that for a second.
