Scotch Broth events match food and whisky on a molecular level.

Happily, there is less than a month to go before the Homecoming Whisky Month pops its cork.

If malt whisky makes your mouth water then the 5pm Dining blog suggests you cast an eye over the four whisky dinners taking place at Arisaig in Glasgow’s Merchant Square during May.

With over a hundred single malts on offer, the contemporary Scottish restaurant has always been a haven for whisky lovers.

To celebrate Homecoming Whisky Month, the restaurant is hosting four entertaining and informative dinners with Scotland’s national drink at the heart of each evening.

Sensory whisky journey

The first event takes place on Friday 9th May with Scotch Broth events taking guests on a sensory journey through the world of whisky.

Called the Malts and Molecules Whisky Dinner, the evening promises to be a fun look at the science of whisky tasting.

As well as sensory experiments, the event will feature a four course dinner with each dish matched to selected whiskies on a molecular level.

Scotch and wry

On Friday 16th May and World Whisky Day on Saturday 17th of May, comic Alan Anderson will be entertaining guests at Arisaig with a live version of his acclaimed, online, Whisky Comedian chat show.

Featuring a tongue-in-cheek but informative interview with top whisky industry professionals, Alan aims to get to the heart of Scotland’s greatest export over a delicious three course dinner.

Alan’s irreverent but loving approach to whisky has had audiences crying with laughter from Adelaide to Islay. Al Murray, The Pub Landlord, Annie Mac, Madness and the Top Gear team are among the fans that have enjoyed his whisky tasting comedy.

Tall tales with Simply Whisky

On Friday 30th May, Simply Whisky will be looking at the stories behind Scotch; its provenance and the craftsmanship needed to create this fascinating drink.

With the aid of several drams, Simon Roser and Franchi Ferla will explain the mysteries of tasting whisky; test guests on their knowledge of the whisky regions and toast the amber liquid’s unique heritage.

All events start at 7pm for 7.30pm. Tickets all cost £55.
