New Year Fundraiser for Cotswold Volunteers - a celebration of the Malt in the Cotswolds
The Friends of Cotswold Volunteers will hold their first major fundraising event on Saturday 16th February, a Whisky Dinner in the magnificent confines of Cirencester Parish Church.
The five-course dinner will be hosted by world-famous journalist, “whisky chef” and Islay resident Martine Nouet. A whisky cocktail will be offered with the canapés, and each course will be accompanied by a malt whisky chosen by Martine. Martine is known in France as “La reine de l'Alambic” (“the queen of the still”). She sits on the judging panel of the International Wine & Spirit Competition in London, and is a regular contributor to Whisky Magazine, whose French edition she founded in 2004. She knows everything there is to know about matching food to spirits, so guests can be sure of a superb meal.
Guests looking forward to a taste of Scotland can also expect some of its sound. Traditional Gaelic harpist Eleanor Holley has travelled south of the border for the occasion, and naturally there will be a piper attending to the dinner.
Tickets for this unique and exciting event are available from Cotswold Volunteers Tel: 01285 658802. More details about the menu and chosen whisky can be found on the charity’s website www.cotswoldvolunteers.org
