Tullamore D.E.W Whiskey hosted a whiskey pairing at the iconic Tom Bergin’s Irish pub In Los Angeles.
Upon entrance into the restaurant, media and influencers attendees were greeted with a 10 year old Single Malt Whiskey in a classic Old Fashion, also a 12 and 15 year old Special Reserve served on its own, which got the even off on the right foot. As a special treat, Tullamore D.E.W. ambassador Jane Maher was there to teach a class in Whiskey 101.
As guests mingled, Tom Bergin’s brought out Irish cuisine to be matched with each of the Whiskeys. The first to be brought out was the Irish shortbread with honey butter paired with the 10 year old Old Fashion. Being my first experience with honey butter, I was enlightened to a whole new world.
Two more appetizers came to be paired with the other two whiskey’s. The first was the chive & bacon deviled eggs.
This was paired with the 12 year old whiskey. Unfortunately the deviled eggs change depending on the chef that day, so you might not be able to get this incredible version of deviled eggs.
The second appetizer was the Farmer’s Market Salad a great light change up from the heavier food in the meal. This was paired with the 15 year old Tullamore D.E.W.
The last course was a french pork chop made with maple/Guinness brine, apple chutney, cheddar grits and bacon jus. It was a perfect finisher to a great 4 course meal.
To top off this feast for dessert we were served Tom Bergin’s Irish Coffee.
Tom Bergin’s has been Los Angeles’s perdurable local for over 80 years. Founded in 1935, Tom Bergin’s holds the second oldest liquor license in LA. Since then the Irish Pub has been known for its warmth, great food, exceptional hospitality and signature Irish Coffee.
