Grade II listed Restaurant Releases Single Cask Malt Whisky to Pair with Modern Indian Cuisine Introducing The Fire Station Whisky – a brand new, limited edition single cask malt whisky from newly opened restaurant Yaatra, situated within the beautiful Old Westminster Fire Station in London.
Chosen to pair perfectly with Indian cuisine, the heath of the Highlands crossed with the spice of the Silk Road, the Fire Station Whisky is distilled by independent and family-owned distillery Tullibardine. The cask was sourced and bottled by London based luxury asset managers, Hackstons.
Aged in a first fill ex-Jack Daniels cask, this light single malt has floral, sweet barley notes and understated hints of vanilla, with pear drops and a soft spice on the finish. Yaatra’s expert Head Mixologist Nick Smith worked alongside Hackstons in selecting the whisky to perfectly complement the modern Indian dishes on Yaatra’s menu.
“Whisky and Indian cuisine make a natural pairing, both of which are famous for their storied histories and deep spiced flavours. Not only that but India is the largest market for scotch on the planet, which is why it was the perfect opportunity to marry these two icons.” – Nick Smith, Head Mixologist, Yaatra.
Only 356 bottles of The Fire Station Whisky have been produced, making this a rare and special gift for the whisky lover in your life this Christmas, with select Hackstons premium clients receiving a gifted bottle. The Fire Station Whisky is £70, can be purchased from Yaatra and delivered nationwide.
