US Exclusive cask in celebration of The Global Gathering 2021
The neat nose reminds us of the waning hours of an ocean barbecue. Embers from the fire smolder while charred seaweed, charred veggies, smoked ham and salted caramels are served. We can smell the sea foam around us, tarry ropes washed up on the shore and a dash of antiseptic. The palate neat indicates no one wants to go home yet….stoke the fire as we prepare a smorgasbord of smoked salmon and mackerel, pulled pork, smoked bacon, fresh rosemary and white peppercorns. Adding water brightens the aromas as we breathe in the fresh seabreeze and serve oysters with smoked butter before snacking on earthy caramels flavoured with lemongrass and vanilla. The reduced palate reveals buttery biscuits, fresh mango, hazelnuts, driftwood and lobster with drawn butter to complete our day of decadence by the seaside.
