“We’ve always tried to take a distinct approach to cooking over flames, where vegetables take centre stage, and where food and drink are intrinsically linked,” said Andrew Clarke. “Most restaurants will do a wine pairing but for us, the opportunity to combine charred food with the depth and range of flavours in a double charred whiskey just made sense. We’re excited for people to experience what we’ve
created”

Fuel for the Fire: The Whiskey That Sets the Stage

At the heart of this culinary symphony lies Jameson Black Barrel, an exceptional blended whiskey aged in double charred barrels. This meticulous ageing process endows the spirit with a lusciously sweet and velvety smooth flavour profile. Infused with notes of toffee, fudge, and a touch of spice, Jameson Black Barrel tantalizes the palate with its rich complexity and sublime vanilla finish. Every element of the menu, be it the food or the cocktails, is expertly choreographed to unleash the full potential of this extraordinary whiskey.
