Most of us know that champagne sets off canaps perfectly, and that white wine and fish together make the perfect partnership. But how many of us know what foods should be consumed with whisky?
Made from malted barley, water and yeast, single malt whiskies have long been drunk in the festive season.
But its not just an after-dinner drink whisky complements starters, main courses and desserts equally well, as long as you pair it up correctly.
Different aged whiskies work better with some dishes than others and in the video below our guests explain how to get the best out of a whisky during all courses, from a smoked-salmon starter to the after-dinner chocolates.
How much water, if any, should you add to your glass? What do the aromas tell you about the whisky, and how can they enhance the flavour of food?
Whisky expert from Scottish brand The Balvenie, Andrew Forrester guides you through the best dishes to pair various whiskies with, ensuring that the enjoyment of your dram can be had throughout Christmas dinner and not just once the meal is over!
