Most Unlikely Beverage Pairings that Actually Worked

Compass Box Whisky Dinner at the Old Village Post House

Staff Pick

Last spring, Chef de Cuisine Forrest Parker and Wine and Beverage Director Patrick Emerson teamed up to stage a whiskey-paired dinner at Old Village Post House. They took on an unusual challenge: pair each of the five courses with a different whiskey from the British firm Compass Box. They pulled it off handsomely. From the golden Asyla paired with smoked trout on a buttermilk johnnycake to the bold, smoky Peat Monster served with pork belly and red-eye reduction, the whiskeys proved more than complex and flavorful enough to complement and enhance an impressive array of contemporary Southern dishes.
