Whisky Squad Darjeeling Christmas

Saturday Dec 15, 2012: 19:00 until 22:30

To Be Confirmed
No fixed address

(5 places remaining)

In addition to the 2 Whisky Squad sessions in December, we’re also going to be holding the 3rd Whisky Squad Christmas Dinner!  Bit of a change in format this year: we’re very excited to announce that the evening will be a new Christmas whisky experience, with menu by Darjeeling Express:

 Indian taste sensations from Nawabi & Mughal recipes with a modern twist, prepared by the incomparable Asma Khan and our very own Pooja Vir.

Pooja’s very kindly offered to host us in her home for this dinner.  Partners are of course welcome, however we’re limited to 14 spaces – which ought to make for a nice cheery little get-together.  The idea is for it to be more of a social event, but with excellent food and a couple of whiskies to put the year to bed.

The evening will be a 3 course sharing dinner, a selection of whiskies to taste, and otherwise be a nice informal end of year get together (for environmental reasons we’re scrapping the quiz).  Please bring anything you’d like to drink in addition to the whiskies we’ll be tasting – haven’t finalised the list yet but we’re looking at 3 or 4 of those.

Saturday December 15th, 19:00 onwards, £30 per person, Paddington area.
