MoonBeams #1: Rannoch Smokery

Duration 35 minutes

This is the first, and rather raw, edition of my podcast: MoonBeams. Even the name at the beginning of the audio has been updated since recording and editing! During a recent trip to Scotland I was fortunate to spend time with Richard Barclay of Rannoch Smokery. Join us in conversation as we talk venison and Scottish food, and match some whiskies with his wonderful meats.

Rannoch Smokery meats are widely available in UK delicatessens and some supermarkets. The distinctive packaging is sure to draw your eye. Close to home in West Sussex I know that Pallant at Arundel keep a good selection of Richard's meats.

We tasted:

The One from the Lakes Distillery

Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or

The Dalmore Cigar malt

Balblair '99 Second Release

It was loads of fun, as you will find out! 

If you do not have a specialist whisky shop near you - and please check out what your local independent retailers do stock - you will find all the whiskies mentioned available by mail order from The Whisky Exchange.
