In this video, we capture the first time that Boulud and Paterson taste and nose the whisky together, filmed at Daniel NYC, Chef Daniel’s three michelin star restaurant in New York.
This is the first ever Bespoke Single Malt Scotch Whisky created in collaboration with a Michelin star chef.
This limited release selection will be available at some point in the near future at Daniel NYC and possibly other restaurants owned by Boulud.
The Dalmore selected by Daniel Boulud is a blend of The Dalmore single malts that been finished in used Muscatel, Madeira, and Port casks.
The Dalmore and Chef Daniel Boulud each embody their rich heritage and appreciate how their storied pasts are intrinsically linked to their individual craftsmanship.
This assemblage is a tribute to the rich complexities of food and whisky, and how The Dalmore and Chef Boulud’s cuisine are so complementary of each other.
