          More Ways To Enjoy

          Suggested Serve

          Smoky Sour

          Fill your cocktail shaker with ice, pour in a large measure of Big Peat, add the equivalent measure of lemon juice, a dash of sugar syrup and egg white. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds until cold. Strain into a glass with ice then garnish with a dehydrated lemon slice. Enjoy the Islay character of Big Peat as he imparts a deep, smoky charm on a classic Whisky Sour!
          Perfect Pairing

          BBQ

          There's no better smoky combo than Big Peat and well-charred meat. Try pairing your next dram with a barbecued burger or steak - the juicy flavours of the meat will enhance Big Peat's sweeter side, before packing a long and peaty punch.
