For those who prefer to drink a large glass of bourbon whiskey served on ice, there is only one counterpart that can improve the flavours of the whiskey! By partnering your bourbon with a fruit crumble, the sweet caramelized flavours will play upon each other perfectly, swirling and dancing on your taste buds.

Beef Bourguignon

An intense flavoured whiskey with different notes should be  partnered with a rich and intense beef Bourguignon. Serve with a selection of your favourite vegetables, this treat is best enjoyed on a Sunday afternoon and in front of a roaring fire.

Although an autumnal winter dish, Chicken Chasseur can complement the tones of all whiskey perfectly. Served with either broccoli and roasted potatoes with thyme, the chicken absorbs the flavours of your whiskey, allowing you to fully appreciate its deep flavours.
