THE HIVE - AWARDS
Cheese: St Tola Ash; a fresh and lemony raw goat milk log from Clare, Ireland. Fruity and fresh flavour with a smooth and velvety texture. Ash coated to give a more prominent flavour.
Meat: Honey and clove roast ham works perfectly when paired The Hive. The whisky refreshes the palate from the saltiness of the meat, whilst maintaining the honey flavours.
Dessert: A creamy Vanilla Panna Cotta or the richer caramlised sugar flavours from a Crème Brûlée work well against The Hive’s medium sweetness.
Beer: Innis and Gun Original. Both The Hive and Innis and Gunn Original impart sweet honey, vanilla and malty characteristics making an intense and indulgent pairing although the orange notes in the whisky and citrus notes from the hops in the beer should stop it from being to cloying.
Chocolate: Belgian dark chocolate blended with caramelised orange pieces. Made in collaboration with Edinburgh’s Chocolate & Pastry Bar.

SINGLE CASK SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY
Colour: Aged Bronze
Nose: The nose conjures a highland wilderness with heather, gorse flowers and crisp autumn leaves. Old fashioned leather walking boots and wax jackets evoke a hike in the Scottish Highlands.
Palate: The beginning flavour is a deep sweetness like honey and demerara flapjacks. Savoury flavours appear as meaty and almost leathery whilst herbal notes of caraway and dried rosemary appear.
Finish: The finish has a gentle smoke like flavour derived from the wood tannins.
