Invest Northern Ireland & Indie Füde

Cheese & Whiskey: Bringing a New Partner to the Pairing Party

7:00pM (BST) SATURDAY 14th October – virtual event

About this event

While cheese and wine and cheese and beer are well-known combinations, the delightful flavors of rich blues and creamy bries can be enhanced by the smokey and floral notes of a good Irish Whiskey.

Join Stephen Stitt from Indie Füde and Peter Rogan from Echlinville Distillery on this irresistable, guided tasting of three beautiful Northern Irish cheeses alongside three superior Irish Whiskeys, and discover why cheese and whiskey make such delicious companions.
