Old Pulteney whisky has partnered with iconic Glasgow haunt - Two Fat Ladies in The City - to create a delicious seafood pairing menu, available exclusively in the restaurant on 11 August.

The four-course, specially curated menu is being designed by Two Fat Ladies’ Head Chef William Cummings to encompass Scotland’s freshest seafood, offering diners whisky-cured salmon, mussels, halibut and more.

As the official Maritime Malt, Old Pulteney is often said to carry a suggestion of Caithness coastal air, with distinct sea notes recognisable on the palate thanks to the years spent maturing in Wick’s traditional dunnage warehouses, making it the perfect partner for delicious seafood.

Each course has been curated to pair with Old Pulteney’s reinvigorated core range – 12, Huddart, 15, and 18 Years Old.

Malcom Waring, Old Pulteney distillery manager said: “Seafood is such a natural pairing for Old Pulteney. The sea-notes in our whiskies complement fish perfectly, and who better to collaborate with than Glasgow’s most iconic fish restaurant. This is not one to miss.”

Ryan James, Managing Director at Two Fat Ladies said: “We’re so excited to be working with Scottish staple Old Pulteney.

“Not only do the whiskies provide perfect pairing partners, but the sea heritage of the brand gives us inspiration in abundance to create a balanced and elegant menu – mirroring the whole range.”

The lunch, taking place between 1pm-4pm, will welcome Old Pulteney’s Brand Ambassador, Gregor Stirling, who will steer guests through the courses and the accompanying whisky pairings, commenting on the nose, palate and finishing notes of the drams.

It’s the latest Pulteney Pairing event to hit the city, and tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite, here for £35.
