Wholesale Meat Western Cape

There’s a day celebrating most things we enjoy eating or drinking, so imagine our delight to discover that there’s a World Whisky Day as well. Founded in 2012 by Blair Bowman, a whisky consultant and author of the Pocket Guide to Whisky, World Whisky Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in May each year – and this year’s celebration falls on Saturday 19th May. Billed as a day to ‘try a dram and celebrate the water of life’, the event encourages people across the world to make whisky fun and enjoyable, and to celebrate all types of and ways of drinking whisky – there are currently five venues in South Africa planning something on the day, so visit the site to see if there’s one near you.

If you prefer to do something at home to celebrate the day, then consider pairing your favourite meal with your favourite whisky. While we may be leading Cape Town meat wholesalers (please link to Home page), we also like to know a thing or two about what best complements a meal so we turn to experts like Fiona Beckett – award-winning food and wine writer, and wine columnist for The Guardian – to provide guidelines for the perfect marriage between whisky and food.

According to Ms Beckett’s Top Pairings:

Light fragrant whiskies with a touch of sweetness – such as Dalwhinnie or Glenkinchie – go well with sushi, smoked salmon, dressed crab, soft and creamy cheeses, and bread and butter pudding.

Medium bodied whiskies with some peat influence – such as Bruichladdich and BNJ – go well with smoked mussels and oysters, smoked duck and venison, duck or chicken liver pate, and roast or braised pheasant – although I’m sure goose or chicken as a pheasant replacement will also do the trick.

Full-bodied rich whiskies aged in sherry casks – such as The Macallan – go well with steak, pork, roast venison, and then rich desserts like fruit cake, mince pies, pecan pie, sticky toffee pudding and dark chocolate brownies.

Strong, peaty whiskies – such as Lagavulin and Talisker – go well with anchovy-based spreads or dips, hot-smoked salmon, mature farmhouse cheddar, and strong blue cheeses.

Whether you choose to doff your hat to World Whisky Day or not, remember that South African Meat Wholesalers, N1, have all that you need to create the perfect menu – from Halaal certified meat right through to fish and wholesale frozen vegetables, so call them today for the best quality in all meat and frozen food products.
