Winter’s Gold.Last week I was invited by Dalwhinnie to Winter’s Gold Dinner at the Goldbergstudios. Some known Foodbloggers and one or two Fashionbloggers joined the party.
I was very curious, for I am not very well versed in whiskies and was particularly interested in learning more about their cocktail versions. Usually whisky has a very strong smoky savor, which one loves or hates. Moreover, Occam Deli Catering regaled us the whole evening with delicious food.The Occam Deli Restaurant in located in the Münchner Freiheit quarter and since long I had the intention to enjoy a meal there.

However, let us talk about the whisky first. A very special beverage that is mainly produced in Scotland. Whisky is produced from a grain mash and is aging at least three years in a wood barrel. That evening the invitation was extended by the Dalwhinnie brand having been in existence since 1897. The dinner theme party Winter’s Gold referred to the special brand Dalwhinnie Winter’s Gold, which is only distilled in the winter. The Worm Tubs are located outdoors, where whisky will chill faster, thus ensuring that it will interact less with the worm tubs’ copper, which improves its savor.

Usually one drinks whisky on ice, also called ‘on the rocks’. Fitting to the winter theme the ice cubes were knocked off a huge ice chunk. I was also allowed to have a try. The easiest way is using a special ice saw, which is very advisable.

100ml raspberry puré

Calamaretti, shrimps. Papaya, couscous, coconut, goji berries, peanuts and mojo

One could choose amongst various cocktail variations as aperitif, whereof I liked the redcurrant syrup variation best. The evening got better and better and I got excited about the Occam Deli starter plate. A huge variety of different canapés, all of which were very delicious. My favorites were definitely the lobster-scallop-stick and the goat cheese pavé. Thereto whisky was served in a tumbler made of ice, which melted rather quickly and dropped on someone’s trousers. That was a super gag.

Dalwhinnie Cocktail SCOTCH & SODA

Dalwhinnie Winter’s Gold, rooibus soda water

served with

black halibut and fennel yuzu cream

Morcilla (Spanish blood sausage), quinoa shrimp and lovage.
Black salsify-red-beet-gratin, pear, blue-stilton-praline and black cumin.

Variations of Simmental beef. Kohlrabi polenta, black cabbage, roasted argan oil.

Served with the main course a somewhat more prickling variation with roibush soda water. Very delicious. As main course different variations of Simmental beef were offered. The steak was simply delicious and its flavour had already come now and then out of the kitchen before. Also very interesting the blue stilton praline to which the English mold cheese conveyed its strong taste. Finely fitting to it was the pear confit. Cheese agrees excellently with fruit.

Als süßer Abgang noch der Überraschungscocktail, bestehend aus dem Dalwhinnie Whisky Sour mit einem Mandarinen-Rauch.
