Bushmills Whiskey: Black Bush Stories Event

March 20, 2019

Music | by Elspeth Pierce

Where there’s whiskey and cheese, Candid will follow. Bushmills Whiskey, a unique and forward-thinking small distillery in Northern Ireland, has previously hosted live music tours with the likes of We Are Scientists, The Magic Gang and Vant and sponsored music specialist radio shows on Hoxton Radio. But this time it’s all about the glorious Irish spirit teamed with ALL the cheese, and we are on board. The batches they produce may be small, but their events certainly aren’t.

Where: TT Liquor, 17B Kingsland Rd, London E2 8AA

When: Wednesday 20th March from 6.30pm until 9.30pm

What’s it all about?

Bushmills® Black Bush Whiskey is hosting an exclusive cheese and whiskey workshop where you learn how to pair the whiskeys and artisan cheese – and even make your own cheese.

The workshop kicks off Bushmills Black Bush Stories, a series of events that seek to shine a light on the talented makers in the industry. The calendar of activities will take place throughout 2019 in London and beyond, inviting participants to explore a range of crafts, meet a host of inspiring makers and get hands on with unique workshops.

The workshop will be hosted by whiskey expert and award winning TV presenter Joel Harrison, who will guarantee all a good night.

Guests have the chance to explore a complimentary palate of flavour-pairings and are able to try cheese making for themselves first-hand. Under expert tuition, each guest will be able to inject their own personality into their culinary creation, by applying up to twelve different cheese flavourings including chocolate, chilli flakes, mint, dill, raisins, candied lemon peel or cranberries to compliment or contrast with the flavours in the whiskeys – sounds pretty good to us!

How: Places are limited to 40 people. Apply here for a chance to win a ticket. The event itself is free of charge.

Further #BlackBushStories events will be announced throughout the year and we will be sure to keep you posted as and when we know more. Whiskey, cheese, music and a good night out – what more could we ask?
