WHISKY & GAME POP-UP BAR TO OPEN IN LONDON FOR FLAVOUR HUNTERS:
While the Glorious 12 might normally refer to a date already past this year – 12th August (the start of the game season and specifically the red grouse season), a clever twist takes the phrase and reapplies it to 12 pairings of Scottish game tapas and single cask whisky all on the menu at ‘Glorious 12’ pop-up.
If like me, you are a fan of game and have a fascination with Scotch Malt Whisky, this is one for you. The event will run on three nights in September, starting on Thursday 11th through to Saturday 13th, with two sittings each evening for a Scottish game tapas menu pairing rare single cask whiskies from the Scotch Malt Whisky Society with wild game from the Wild Game Company.
There are two ticketed sittings per evening at 6.45pm and 8.45pm and the bar will be open to walk-ins from 5pm-11pm. Tickets are priced at £29 for a choice of four whisky and game tapas pairings with a full menu of 12 pairings available on request.
The whole thing takes place in Shoreditch (where else?) at Studio 2, 31 New Inn Yard, London, EC2A 3EY
