Do you know your whiskey from your whisky?

Posted by on 23rd February 2017

DSC 7638  Do you know your whiskey from your whisky?

The Scots spell it whisky and the Irish (and everyone else) spell it whiskey.

Scotch is whisky made in Scotland (an average of 34 bottles of whisky are exported from Scotland every second), while bourbon is whiskey made in America. Scotch is made mostly from malted barley, while bourbon is distilled from corn. If you’re in England and ask for a whisky, you’ll get Scotch. Sound confusing?

Not for those who attended our SWIRL event at The Brasserie last night. Guests were treated to bourbon blended scotch and single malts whilst enjoying whiskey braised pork belly, Cayman lobster corndogs and Valrhona dark chocolate & orange tart. To cap off the evening, a hand rolled Cuban Cigar.

Whether you drink your whiskey with ice, a small splash of water or “neat”, there’s a long history behind this beloved spirit.

Apparently the Scots used to light scotch on the fire to determine how much alcohol was in it. The color of the flame showed whether or not the alcohol content was right. If it was too hot, the alcohol content was too high.

Did you also know that the word whisky comes from the Gaelic “uisgebeatha” meaning “water of life”?

Swirling Spain’s finest wines

Posted by on 27th January 2017

DSC 6972  Swirling Spain’s finest wines

As the sun began to set and the stars appeared in the sky, guests enjoyed the very best wines that Spain has to offer in The Brasserie’s flourishing vegetable garden. The perfect setting for one of the most popular wine tasting events in Cayman.

With over 2.9 million acres of vineyards and more than 400 grape varieties in Spain, it’s no surprise why we decided to showcase this country’s reputable selection of wines.

Cava, Albarino, Garnacha and of course a Tempranillo Rioja were on the tasting menu, paired with locally inspired bites of seafood paella and ham and manchego croquettes prepared by Chef Thomas, to complement the tasting experience.

Spain is the top exporter of wine in the world. In 2014, Spain exported 22.8 million hectolitres with the majority of it going to France. Not only is Spain a top exporter, but in 2014 it was the third largest producer of wine, behind France and Italy. That’s impressive!

Our next SWIRL event – Whiskey & Cigars – will be held on Wednesday 22nd February, 2017. Email us to book your spot – reservations@brasseriecayman.com
