Coastal cooking with Old Pulteney


Couples Christmas gift idea – Old Pulteney and Food Sorcery

Old Pulteney has created the ultimate Christmas gift experience for any whisky and food lover, by partnering with top Manchester cooking school Food Sorcery to create the Coastal Cooking class.


If you love whisky and your partner loves the perfect gift idea for anyone who enjoys cooking with friends and family, Old Pulteney’s Coastal Cooking class is an interactive lesson that aims to teach attendees new kitchen skills in a relaxed atmosphere. Attendees will learn how to cook two seafood-inspired dishes, before sitting down and tucking into their hard work, all enjoyed over a dram of Old Pulteney’s 12 Years Old Single Malt, the core expression in the distillery’s collection.

The Coastal Cooking class is as much about learning and eating as it is about chatting and having fun, and each ticket admits two people. Attendees will learn to make a beautiful starter of butterflied prawn bruschetta with Old Pulteney & sea salt butter, followed by a main of monkfish kebabs with crispy greens and Parmentier potatoes. A dessert will be prepared by chefs, so attendees can tuck in and enjoy their meal. 

Each expression in Old Pulteney’s range of single malt scotch whiskies captures the essence of its home on the Northerly shores of the Caithness Coast, in rural Scotland.  Matured by the sea, Old Pulteney casks breathe the sea air year after year, leaving a distinctively briny taste that pairs perfectly with seafood dishes. 

A perfect gift for any whisky lover or foody fan, the experience aims to empower people to feel confident in the kitchen and create delicious dishes at home.

The Coastal Cooking with Old Pulteney class takes place on Saturday 21st January at Food Sorcery’s Manchester school. Tickets are available to purchase from Food Sorcery’s website. One ticket admits two people and is priced at £160.
