A half and half
Pairing two drinks and having them side by side is a popular thing to do in many countries around the world. Some countries will have two beers in one glass, others will mix two wines. Here in Scotland, a dram of whisky is chased down with a glass of beer. This tradition has been kept for centuries. Is not about greed, sometimes you can’t decide between a pint and a dram so, why not go for both?
Here at Jeffrey st. we’ve created a selection of pairings to celebrate this tradition. Malty and small batch brews have been paired with various Scotch whiskies.
