From the heart of Spilinga in Calabria Nduja is a spicy salami paste originating from Spilinga in Calabria. They knead nduja from Pino’s Dolce Vita with Pepe Saya Cultured Butter. "We make nduja by mincing selected cuts of pork meat and fat into a paste with salt, pepper and five different types of red chillies. The mix is then filled into large natural casings, slowly cured, gently smoked and left to hang for 4-12 weeks depending on the size to give its distinct and unique flavour." Pino (Pino’s Dolce Vita)

Home to more than 40 whisky distilleries, Australia is starting to become increasingly recognised internationally as a whisky producing nation. Our homegrown distillers are producing whiskies that speak more of place and region, rather than attempting to mimic styles of the world, and this individual and free-flowing approach is being embraced world-over.
For this special masterclass we’ve teamed up with Whisky specialist Mitch Gurrin, (Drinks World Top 100 bartenders in 2018 and 2019), to showcase what we think are great examples of Australian Whiskies. This delicious line-up will be paired with different styles of cheese, all of which playfully compliment these unique Whisky profiles.
Mitch, with over a decade working in the industry and for some of the most awarded Australian distilleries, will be our host for the evening. He’ll lead you through a selection of 5 Australian Whiskies, which will be enhanced with our carefully selected cheese range.
Whiskies being poured:
Archie Rose White Rye
Starwood Nova Single Malt
Whipper Snapper Upshot
Gospel Straight Rye
Archie Rose Rye Malt
