Celebrate World Whisky Day with a Transatlantic Whisky and Cheese Pairing

The perfect way to celebrate World Whisky Day this May?  Join an exquisite whisky and cheese pairing, which combines New York excellence with Scottish romanticism and storytelling.

Away from the Ordinary, a company which provides luxury whisky tastings, and New York based Bedford Cheese Shop are – for the first time – collaborating on a bespoke and artisanal whisky and cheese pairing event. Attendees will be guided through the narrative and tasting notes of five hand-selected Scottish whiskies along with five carefully paired exquisite cheeses.

On Thursday 20th of May at 7pm EST, US attendees will join this unique event via Zoom, sampling some of the most delicious and delectable cheeses and whiskies in the world. Tickets are now available for purchase at www.watchwithwhisky.com and start at $220 per person, plus shipping costs.

World Whisky Day invites everyone to try a dram and celebrate the water of life. Taking place annually on the third Saturday in May, this special occasion is celebrated by whisky lovers worldwide with tastings, events and gatherings.  This year, World Whisky Day will take place on Saturday the 15th of May.

CEO and Owner of Away from the Ordinary, Aeneas O’Hara commented:

“We are delighted to be working with such innovative and passionate partners as Bedford Cheese Shop to create something truly special. Cheese and whisky make for a powerful pairing; each bringing out a plethora of exciting and dynamic flavours and aromas which might have gone previously undetected.

“There is an explosion of taste and texture offered when enjoying a smoky single malt paired with a powerful blue cheese. From sweet floral notes to peppery oak cask flavours, this experience is bound to elate the taste buds and engage everyone from the most knowledgeable foodie to the absolute beginner.

Both the chosen cheeses and drams have a story to tell.  With this tasting, we will be unlocking those historical narratives, giving attendees not just a thrill for the tastebuds, but also for the soul and heart.”

Away from the Ordinary offers a range of virtual whisky and gin tastings – including chocolate and cheese pairings.  These tastings can be fully hosted, or enjoyed at leisure, in your own home.  The company also provides bespoke travel to Scotland; organising incredible, authentic Scottish vacation experiences.  More details can be found here. www.awayfromtheordinary.com

In 2012, Bedford Cheese Shop opened in the Gramercy Park neighbourhood in Manhattan. They continue to aspire to be the proverbial bridge between makers of cheese, charcuterie and specialty foods and their customers and community, near and far. They value the old-world traditions of mongering. Every day, our cheesemongers impart not only their knowledge of cheese making, care and ripening, but also the unique stories behind the history, origins and nuances of the cheeses. The delicate balance of art and science.
