It’s Coffee Time With The Macallan & Veneziano

by Lydia Martin

A unique tasting event that combined the finest of our favourites: Coffee and Whisky.

We were honored to be invited to the immersive Whisky and Coffee tasting hosted at Veneziano Coffee Roasters, Richmond, celebrating The Macallan limited annual release of their Harmony collection. At this tasting, we met The Macallan’s latest baby, The Macallan Inspired by Intense Arabica, a single malt whisky inspired by Ethiopian Arabica coffee beans, that explores the complimentary flavours of coffee and whisky in an innovative new creation.

Greeted warmly by the inviting fragrance of freshly brewed coffee at Veneziano Coffee Roasters, the excitement to embark on this exceptional Whisky and Coffee pairing experience was percolating among guests and hosts alike.

Guests were taken on a verbal tour of the origins of both coffee and whisky, as well as The Macallan’s aspirations and ambitions of  this achievement, which involved collaborations with world renowned coffee masters, to create a unique and decadent whisky with a palate of espresso, dark chocolate, raisins, blackberry, vanilla, Brazil nut and sweet oak, to a long, dark roast coffee finish.
