Nucoco巧克力與格蘭哥尼威士忌迸發出火花!

(未成年請勿飲酒)

They say a balanced diet is a chocolate in each hand, but at Glengoyne we prefer a chocolate in one and a dram in the other as we launch our interactive chocolate and whisky-tasting tour, in partnership with Glasgow-based chocolatier Nucoco. 

有人說最棒的餐點就是一手巧克力、另一手也是巧克力。但是在格蘭哥尼說到巧克力與威士忌的互動之旅,我們推薦一手巧克力、一手威士忌酒杯,這才是最佳搭檔!來看看格蘭哥尼與巧克力商Nucoco有什麼新鮮事吧!

The new tour will offer visitors a chocolate and whisky tasting experience designed specifically to complement the flavour profiles. The matching session will pair 10yo Glengoyne with a smooth Nucoco milk chocolate and tablet delight and a hand-crafted a 54% dark chocolate with cranberry, whilst in order to go toe to toe with the dried fruit and rich, spicy oak flavours of the Glengoyne 21yo Nucoco has created a 54% dark chocolate with ginger and a 70% dark chocolate with pistachio. Also included in the new experience is a tour of the Distillery and a welcome dram of Glengoyne 12yo. 

在我們的參觀裡有部分為香氣訓練,我們特別要介紹到巧克力與威士忌的品嘗。以搭配性來說,我們使用格蘭哥尼10年威士忌與Nucoco牛奶巧克力口味搭配。至於乾果、豐富辛香味的格蘭哥尼21年威士忌,我們使用了54%帶有草莓味的黑巧克力來搭配。Nucoco製作的54%黑巧克力帶有薑汁味道,而70%黑巧克力則帶有開心果味道。當然最重要的還是格蘭哥尼酒廠參觀之旅,我們也會用一杯12年來打開這一個旅程!

Stuart Hendry, Brand Heritage & Commercial Manager at Glengoyne Distillery said: "We are really excited about the partnership with Nucoco. There is a good link with whisky and chocolate -  single estate chocolate is equivalent to single malt whisky, whereas single bean varieties can be as sought after as single cask whisky. Over the last few weeks our Distillery team has spent hours with Jackie Wynne of Nucoco, relentlessly consuming fine chocolate and single malt in the pursuit of perfect pairings. It was not easy, but we stuck with it. This will be an enjoyable new way to visit Glengoyne, it will complement our in-depth whisky tours and I wholeheartedly recommend an hour and half of blissful indulgence."

Stuart Hendry,為格蘭哥尼酒廠品牌傳承與市場行銷經理,他說到我們很高興有機會能與Nucoco有夥伴關係,威士忌與巧克力之間原本就有很好的連結性,由其是單一精選的巧克力豆與單一麥威士忌搭配,而單一精純巧克力豆更可以與威士忌單一桶有絕佳默契。過去這幾周,格蘭哥尼酒廠團隊花了許多時間與Nucoco巧克力公司的Jackie Wynne一起討論找出巧克力與威士忌絕佳的甜點與酒搭配方式。說起來不容易,但我們都堅持追求,這對參觀格蘭哥尼酒廠的旅途來說更增添一筆,豐富了這一趟威士忌之旅,而我由衷地推薦遊客花這一個半小時的時間慢慢在酒廠裡留連忘返,度過美好時光。

As well as enjoying the new tours at the distillery, Nucoco chocolates will also be available to purchase at the distillery shop and online with suggested whisky matches.
Stuart continued: "Glengoyne and Nucoco are well-aligned to work together. Both are family businesses with similar brand values – to offer a premium product that has been produced through investment of time and infinite care.  Glengoyne whisky is hand-crafted using air-dried barley and oak sherry casks, which are seasoned for six years while Nucoco is produced from the finest cocoa beans from Asia, Africa and America. Both result in an innovative, top quality product."


在格蘭哥尼酒廠參訪之餘,現在我們也可以在酒廠的紀念品店以及官網上面購買到Nucoco的巧克力囉!同時我們也有建議搭配的威士忌。品牌傳承與市場行銷經理Stuart繼續說到格蘭哥尼與Nucoco是合作的非常棒的聯盟體,都是家族傳承企業以及有著相近的品牌價值觀提供最優質的產品,透過時間的投資以及無盡的照料。格蘭哥尼強調純手工工藝,利用空氣乾燥法烘乾大麥,採用花費六年時間而得的嚴選雪莉桶,如同嚴謹的Nucoco選豆來自於亞洲、南非以及美洲各地。雙方都秉持傳統但具革新性,最重要的是品質至上。
