From the heart of Scotland, we present a new way of experiencing the exquisite pleasures of some of the world’s best chocolates tasted side-by-side with the finest spirits.
A Taste-Talk FLING perfectly pairs all their unique qualities and provides an entertaining opportunity to sample their delights and hear about their rise to fame.
The successful melding of aromas, flavours, and textures will be a revelation to every FLING first timer. Savoured in good company with like-minded lovers of gourmet experiences, it makes an unusual and delightful addition to an elegant afternoon tea party, a dining celebration, or a dainty corporate event treat. Treat you and your friends to a very special hour or two exploring the finest chocolate truffles paired
with Scotland’s smoothest oak-aged malts and artisan gins.
TASTE-TALK ‘FLINGS’ are held in wonderful locations and are hosted by our warm and wonderfully knowledgeable Ambassadors. Spend an enjoyable afternoon or evening with us hearing about the superb products we showcase – the renowned chocolate truffles crafted by Iain Burnett
along with the finest whiskies and gins matched by our tasting experts.

fine spirits and truffles made with single origin chocolate can be paired in perfect harmony, and we match the whole experience with harmonious
At Taste-Talk we think it takes two to tango, but success depends on the superior whiskies, gins and chocolate products we proudly parade. In essence, the magic lies in the quality of their ingredients and the well-honed skills used in bringing them together.
At his kitchens in Grandtully beside the River Tay, Iain Burnett blends locally sourced fresh cream, the finest single origin cocoa beans, and natural
flavourings. His unique methods have won him world awards for the utterly beguiling, silky-smooth texture and aroma of his truffles.
Equally compelling, is the story behind our chosen whiskies and artisan gins each matched with perfection to their appropriate chocolate concoction. This is a triumphant Scottish story, of ancient and modern recipes, the crystal purity of local burns, the quality of grain from our straths and glens, and meticulous manufacturing skills.
A Taste-Talk FLING is therefore an adventure in Scottish history as well as a truly mouth-watering voyage of discovery.
Here is a Scottish first – a feast of delights for all the senses where every FLING culminates in our guests tasting the delicious flavour combinations we have carefully paired.
