Welcome to the third instalment of Surrey Wine Schools four week online course, this week explores the world of English Whiskey & Cheese!
That’s right Surrey Wine School doesn’t just talk about wine, they love celebrating all the tasty drinks and teaching you how to find the perfect cheese accompaniment to all your favourite tipples.
The Whiskies –
Surrey Wine School have teamed up with Spirit of Yorkshire, a unique distillery on the North Yorkshire coast who grow their barley, use their own brewery to create their ‘wash’ then finally distill that to create their very own single malt whisky. Spirit of Yorkshire is one of a handful of distilleries seeking to create a quality dram right here in England, consulting with the late great Dr Jim Swan, they set up a fully functioning Whisky distillery in 2012, filled their first casks in June 2016 and are now bearing the fruits of that endeavour.
This week Surrey Wine students will be tasting 4 wonderful whiskies from Spirit of Yorkshire alongside 4 distinct kinds of cheese. After you’ve ordered your cheese tasting box from us you need to enrol on this course via the Surrey Wine School here. Surrey Wine School will send you all of the information and links to log into the live video and join in the fun on Thursday 30th July. When you book on to this tasting they will also send you a secret link to order a tasting pack of 4 whiskies and a special tasting glass from Spirit of Yorkshire for only £20!
There will also be a Meet The Maker Q&A with Spirit of Yorkshire’s very own Whisky Director Joe Clark. Joe will join you for the last half an hour of your Zoom session to tell you about life on the farm, down by the stills, and how they set up their unique ‘field to bottle’ distillery. He’ll talk you through the philosophy behind the 4 different expressions, and you can ask him all your questions- anything you’ve ever wondered about whisky, Joe is the man to ask!
What’s In The Box –
On this night you’ll be learning how to taste cheese and whisky individually as well as how to pair them together. You will also touch on the production techniques for both to help you understand why they taste the way they do.
Wine School boxes are available per person, simply select how many people are taking the class with you from the drop-down menu. Don’t want pre-portioned cheese? No problem, you can buy these four cheeses without the accompaniments in cheeseboard sized wedges too.
