Big Peat is a marriage of Single Malts from Distilleries on Islay, first created in 2009 by Fred Laing, our Master Blender.
Join Douglas Laing & Co in the conservatory of the Lochside Hotel, looking out over the waters of Loch Indaal for our Big Peat themed evening of Malt madness!
Our evening will kick off with a Whisky tasting where we’ll sample Big Peat, followed by three examples of his Single Malt component parts from Caol Ila, Bowmore and Laphroaig.
We’ll then invite you to mix your own Big Peat Smoky Sour cocktail, which you can enjoy on the balcony area looking out over the waters as we fire up the barbecues (weather permitting of course!).
Dinner will then be served; a gourmet barbecued burger with one of a kind Big Peat BBQ sauce accompanied beautifully by a Limited Edition Big Peat Cask Matured Ale. Dessert will follow, which we will enjoy with a dram of our Big Peat Feis Ile Limited Edition – a powerful dram with a unique Sherry influence!
This promises to be a fun and informal Whisky paired dinner hosted in the comfortable surroundings of the Lochside Hotel, which boasts an impressive selection of 300 strong Whiskies! A band will be playing following our event, so we encourage you to stay with us and dance the night away!
More information on the menu will be posted shortly, including vegetarian alternatives.
