Glorious 12 pop-up to pair whisky and game

28th August, 2014 by Lucy Shaw

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society has teamed up with The Wild Game Co. on a Glorious 12 pop-up restaurant due to open in east London next month.

Taking place at exhibition space Studio 2 in Shoreditch from 11-13 September, the pop-up will pair seasonal wild game with a dozen rare single cask whiskies.

The studio will be transformed to evoke the feeling of dining in the Scottish countryside. Among the game available on the menu will be woodcock, hare, partridge and wild boar, all of which will be served in tapas-sized dishes designed for sharing.

Dishes include grouse, toasted brioche, roasted and puréed fig; roe deer striploin with frites, béarnaise and rowan jelly; and partridge with butterbeans and chorizo.

“When it comes to game, our aim is to take people on journey of discovery so they can explore these seasonal meats, which are so often overlooked yet available on our doorsteps,” said Andy Waugh, founder of The Wild Game Co.

“There’s no better time than now to eat game as it’s just come into season and pairing wild game with different types of whisky offers a new flavour experience,” he added.

The pop-up will offer two ticketed sittings each night, at 6:45pm and 8:45pm, though the bar will also be open to walk-ins throughout the three days.

Each night a guest speaker will give a talk, with wild food expert Thom Hunt, who appeared in Channel 4’s Three Hungry Boys, advising diners on how to forage in the wild on the 11th then teaching the basics of butchering small game on the 12th.

Game specialist Ru Emslie meanwhile, will talk guests through how to smoke meat and fish at home on the 13th. Tickets cost £29 and include four tapas dishes and whisky pairings.
