"Take flavour to the next level"

Join Ghillie for a unique whisky and food pairing.

By breaking down the aromas and tastes in the whisky you then build them up in the food so that they compliment one another on your flavour journey.  Together you prepare spice pastes and ingredients and assemble them on a slate from Ghillie’s roof!

But don’t be fooled – this is no ordinary whisky tasting and food pairing experience and the food is not just a nibble – it is a relaxing and memorable experience to enjoy as your midday or evening meal. Allow 3-4 hours of your time to step into a time warp with a stunning view, a log fire and good company.

What our guests say about us

“One of the best, if not the best thing we did in Scotland was the Whisky Food Safari with Ghillie Basan. Ghillie is so great and makes you feel like an immediate lifelong friend. If anyone is ever in Scotland, I’d put this on your must do list!”
Jacob Knettel and family (USA)

“If pairing the right kind of food with whisky is an art, then I must say Ghillie is the expert in that art. It takes a lot of talent to get it right.
Prakash Chandran and friends (India, Malaysia, Indonesia)

“Upon arriving at Ghillie’s wonderful home located in the middle of heather-covered hillsides, we quickly learned that by using specifically chosen herbs and spices, you can match the flavor profile of Whiskies making Whisky a wonderful compliment to any meal. Little did we know that with Ghillie’s guidance and instruction, we would be preparing and assembling each food course ourselves - this was truly a hands-on experience.  The 8 or 9 course meal (I lost count after a while) was amazing. This was an experience my wife and I will never forget”.
Mike Conway, Latah Creek Wine Cellars (USA)
