Talisker Whisky has partnered with Angler in the City to transform the Michelin-starred restaurant’s heated rooftop Terrace throughout the autumn months.
The restaurant’s exclusive menu feature Wild Talisker whisky cocktails which are available daily, through to mid-November. These come with a special small plate menu which follows a whisky theme and was created by Executive Chef Gary Foulkes.
The decor utilises many natural materials which are native to the Isle of Skye. The terrace also follows the same theme with liberal use of heather of and live plants, preserved grasses and birch wood to mirror the Islands biodiversity.
The Wild Cocktail list includes a Strawberry Skye (Talisker Skye, Prosecco, berry purée, heather honey – £15), and a Wild Old Fashioned (Talisker Storm, black walnut bitters, angostura bitters, fig jam and honey syrup – £14).
Gary Foulkes’ menu features a pheasant and barley croquette with Talisker whisky cream; chestnut hummus, fig leaf infused oil and toasted flatbread; and whisky cured salmon, treacle bread with malt butter (£10-£13).
The terrace launched on Wednesday 18 September and is open from Monday-Friday (Noon-11pm) and on Saturdays (3 pm-11 pm) until mid-November.
Wild Spirit Cocktail Masterclasses
In addition to the daily offering, Talisker will host two Wild Spirit Cocktail Masterclasses on the terrace. The masterclasses will demonstrate how to make Talisker’s bespoke Wild Old Fashioned, as well as explaining Talisker’s background, and the ingredients used throughout. The Masterclasses are £15pp and include a specially crafted cocktail – the terrace menu will be available for small dishes and additional drinks. The Wild Cocktail Masterclasses cost £15 per person – tickets available here.
