2015 is The Year of Food and Drink in Scotland and to celebrate pairing whisky and food The Whisky Shop Dufftown is running a competition to find the best Speyside whisky inspired Muffin or Cup Cake.   This tasting, hosted by Mike Lord of The Whisky Shop Dufftown, is to decide the best entry from the specially selected finalists.

The many different Speyside whiskies have a tremendous range of flavours and pairing them with food is a true delight.  It can emphasise flavours in the food or in the whisky.  It can even bring out entirely new flavours as well.  That's why we have been asking members of the public to celebrate Scotlands finest whiskies by letting them be inspired to create a Muffin or Cupcake to pair with a specific Speyside dram, contain the whisky in the recipe or be inspired by Speysides finest in some other way.  The whisky chosen should be readily available in the UK.

Have you been inspired to enter?  If so please supply a detailed recipe, a picture of your finished baking and a short piece on how you have been inspired (no more than 300 words).  We would also love to see a video of you making your Muffin or Cupcake that we can use on Social Media.  Entries are to be received by no later than 31st  March 2015.  The creator of the winning entry will win 2 nights accommodation at the fabulous Dowans hotel in Aberlour, a special distillery tour and a cookery class at The Oakwood Cookery school in Elgin.

Over 18's only please. Please ensure you have read our terms and conditions for events. If you want to contact us about this event please email enquiries@whiskyshopdufftown.com or phone on +44(0)1340 821 097.
