Saint Peter Restaurateur and Chef Josh Niland is heading to North Head in Sydney to host the Taste of Talisker.

The seaside event will take place from 21-22 October at a bespoke restaurant and bar space that overlooks the picturesque cliff tops of Manly.

Guests are set to experience a three-course menu on 21 October, with each dish created with a dram from Talisker’s whisky portfolio in mind.

“I wanted to capture the wild spirit of the sea paired with key aromas of Talisker – smoke, spice and a sense of sea salt spray in the morning after a storm,” says Niland.

“Years of maturation made by the sea has lent a full flavour to this bold dram and this menu celebrates Talisker’s rich flavours while honouring the sea in a sustainable and ethical way.”

The first course sees salt and vinegar garfish, kamut sourdough and yoghurt cultured butter served with 10-Year-Old, with charcoal-cooked squid and yellowfin tuna ‘nduja and Talisker Storm following it up.

The third course encompasses King George Whiting with finger lime, tapioca and chives with Talisker Skye.

“Every sip of Talisker is a taste of the Isle of Skye itself, one of the most remote, windswept yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland that Talisker calls home,” says Brand Ambassador Katie Nagar.

“This powerful single malt whisky, with a sea-salty nose, spicy complexity, smoky sweet character and signature peppery finish is like a warm welcome from a wild sea and best enjoyed surrounded by nature.”

Two-hour Made by the Sea guided whisky experiences will take place on day two of the pop-up, with Niland curating a bespoke snacks menu for sessions held from 12-9pm.

Bookings are now open for Taste of Talisker ($195) and Made by the Sea ($100).
