Description

A Truly Adult Pairing - Chocolate and Whisky

We start with the world's best chocolate. Then we add fine whisky.

Not only will you sample a carefully curated selection of six amazing chocolates and three fine whiskies, but chocolate expert - Shari Aubrey - will teach you how to immerse yourself in the experience by using your five senses to make this a truly sensory experience.

However, the true magic happens when you combine the two, and experience what a difference the combination of chocolate and whisky makes to taste. You can read more about why they're the perfect pairing here.

A lesson in indulgence

Shari will take you on an informative and entertaining journey of all things chocolate and whisky, from the history of chocolate (and how many cocoa beans you needed to buy a sexual slave during the Aztec period), the process of how the humble cocoa bean becomes the artisinal chocolate you're enjoying, how whisky is made and the myths around the best producing countries.

What if I don't like whisky?

I must admit, I spent most of my life thinking I didn't like whisky, mainly because I hadn't had good whisky, or had only tried really strong whisky - what you may have heard called peaty/smoky. But then I discovered the diversity that exists in whisky and haven't looked back.

We run these events often and make use of the variety of whisky available, much of what we use is lighter (sometimes even floral). If you're particulalry worried about a strong peaty whisky, let us know and we can ensure you get more of the lighter variety, plus we'll guide you through other tips to soften the blow, so to speak, like adding a touch of water.

We also find that most people - even if not a whisky drinker - love getting into the experience and trying something different from their usual glass of wine. And it's amazing how many people who come to an event thinking they don't like whisky, and leave converted not only to whisky, but to pairing whisky and chocolate. One of our guests, who came not convinced about whisky, left raving and coined the hashtag #daretotry which sums up our ethos nicely.

If in doubt, get in touch and we'll work something out. Any questions - drop us a line hello@fiamma.life.
