Queen Street upcoming Tastings:

SMWS in collaboration with Bross Bagels 06/08/21

Montreal style BAGELS with New York Deli inspired fillings? Yes please! In the month of August, we celebrate Game-changing food pairings, we thought what better to do than a collaboration with the massively popular Bross Bagels! During this tasting we will sample 3 mini bagels packed with flavoursome fillings, and of course pair each with SMWS whiskies! We will also be lucky enough to have the owner of Bross bagels join us for this tasting, Larah came from Montreal, the bagel capital of the world that always gets overlooked by the other bagel capital of the world, New York. Instead of complaining about the lack of bagels this country had to offer - she decided to do something about it.

You will be amazed how the finest of Scottish produce is transformed into exquisite and delicious food. Prepared by Head chef James Freeman and his team this game-changing 5 course menu showcases traditional and modern cooking techniques, we offer you the perfect harmony on a plate and in a glass with each course expertly paired with SMWS whisky.

Italian charcuterie pairing 20/08/21

Bringing together a perfectly paired combination of food and whisky isn’t just a way of ensuring you don’t end up with clashing flavours. It’s a process that allows you to heighten both the flavours of the food you’re eating and the character and tasting notes of the whisky you’re drinking. It’s a sensory journey. We are going to be exploring flavoursome world of charcuterie with Alberto Ruggeri owner of Bacco, this is a local, young and vibrant company dedicated charcuterie and wine from privately owned, independent producers from various regions of Italy. This tasting includes 4 whiskies and 4 charcuterie samples.

Whisky and Oysters: The OysterMan 27/08/21
