Last week was a #majorrager as my company and Team at Food Talk launched the Jameson Caskmates – a beautiful triple distilled Irish whiskey in Delhi and Mumbai. My love for whiskey is no secret and when Perno Ricard reached out to us to launch the Caskmates I was ecstatic. I’ve been to Dubin, Ireland and to the Jameson distillery in Middleton and I knew I had to launch it here in India with an absolute banger!
Two cities. Three fantastic Chefs. Two spirits in one. Two wild, wild, nights.
We brought together the ultimate collaboration with Chefs Kelvin Cheung & Boo kim (of Bastian) for Bombay
Finally Caskmates is here and launching at @bastianseafood tomorrow night!!! My love for my @jameson_india @jamesonwhiskey meets aged beer casks. Me and my mate @chefbookim making brinner and drinks. @foodtalkindia #jamesoncaskmates #caskmates #jameson #goirish #thirdway #sinemetu #brinner #bastian @jameson_us @jameson_korea
& Radhika Khandelwal (of Fig & Maple) and Chef Kelvin, Delhi .
Beer and whiskey come together to create the Caskmates so of course we had to bring together the best in the business to launch it!
The party kickstarted in Bombay so Delhi obviously had to follow. And Delhi was the clear winner by the end of it. What a night!
Needless to say, it was a feast like no other. But when two insane chefs come together with the best party-throwers, nothing short of unforgettable is expected. Moving on from the revelry, let’s get to business.
What is the Jameson Caskmates after all?
A one-of-a-kind whiskey created out of a passion for craft, quality and collaboration – it is the triple distilled Jameson everyone loves, finished in stout-seasoned whiskey casks.
It is a modern, deep golden whiskey with a subtle touch of hops, cocoa beans, marzipan and charred oak with a sweet butterscotch and vanilla aftertaste. Yup. Whiskey lover or not, you’ve got to taste this. I
Shoutout to all my mates for coming over and making the launch such a massive success!
Oh, and for those of you who followed Kelvin and I to the afterparty at my friend’s house later – I’m sorry!
