4 Pairings of Cheese With Whiskey & Gin for Your Celebrations

Pair craft whiskey and gin with delicious cheese this holiday season. We bring you the following 4 pairings for your tasting pleasure.

 

1. Lavender Fennel Goat Cheese with Sipsong Indira Gin

 

1.5oz Indira Gin

3/4oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2oz pomegranate grenadine
2oz sparkling wine
 

Shake gin lemon and grenadine with ice for 10 seconds then pour into a coupe or flute glass, add fresh pomegranate seeds and top with sparkling wine.

Pomegranate seeds are optional you could use a  lemon twist instead.

Pomegranate Grenadine
16oz pomegranate juice
16oz sugar
2oz pomegranate molasses

1 teaspoon orange flower water

Heat pomegranate juice enough to melt sugar on the stove top. Add sugar molasses and orange flower water, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Will keep in refrigerator for 1 month

2. Wood’s Treeline Gin Martini with Cypress Grove Humboldt Fogs

2 oz Wood’s Treeline Gin
.75 oz dry vermouth (I prefer either Mattei Cap Corse Blanc or Dolan Dry Vermouth)
Stirred and served with a lemon twist
 
Paired with Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog, which is an ash washed soft-ripened goat cheese that bursts with flavors that pair beautifully with the crisp, dry flavors of the martini.

3. PATIQUE Crusta with Aged Gran Mugello

There is a good amount of acidity in the drink which should help cut through the fat of the cheese.  The taste of the PATIQUE will carry through to the end and add a nice red fruit flavor that always pairs so nicely with cheese, while the cognac will add a slightly oaky and vanilla note to add complexity to the pairing.

4. Bozeman 1889 Whiskey With Challerhocker

We had a fun pairing/tasting for the Montana 1888 Old Fashioned with four great cheeses, and the best was a mild and dense cheese from Switzerland called Challerhocker..  photo attached for you!

 
Looking for a nice compliment to the tastebuds for your Whiskey drinking crowd?  We suggest a smooth dense, mild, nutty cheese called Challerhocker,  pronounced “holler hocker” paired with a Montana 1889 Old Fashioned cocktail.  Sweet notes of caramel and brown butter with a hint of roasted nut combine well with the strong and sweet flair of the old fashioned orange notes, brandy cherry and bitters.  This tasty combination using the complimentary flavors can enhance any memorable occasion!
