Fife Apples & Grains Friday, Jan 19, 2024

Apples and Grains Balgove Larder

Thursday 22nd February - 6.00pm to 8.00pm

£30/person (18+ only)

Join us for an exclusive evening bringing apples & grains together, with three of Fife's most exciting drink producers: Naughton Cider, Daftmill and Tayport Distillery.

Each producer will share their story and insight into their craft and process, including tasting notes with each pour.

First up, we are joined by Peter Crawford from Naughton Cider. With two decades of experience in the world of a Champagne, Peter brings his knowledge of the méthode Champenoise to produce an elegant, refined and generous cider made with apples from Fife orchards.

Next, we'll hear from Francis Cuthbert of Daftmill. Known for their highly sought-after and limited release whisky, Daftmill works in harmony with the farm on which the distillery stands near Cupar, Fife. Using barley grown on the farm, and water from the well on site, Francis makes the whisky during quieter times on the farm.   

Rounding off the evening is Tayport Distillery; a multi-award winning, family business, dedicated to making spirits using local fruits and grains. Kecia and Mary will showcase their malt barley vodka as well as their latest creation: Scots Pine Gin. This spirit draws inspiration from their location on the edge of Tentsmuir Forest. 

You'll be able to enjoy samples of each spirit along with charcuterie grazing boards for good measure!

At the end of the night, there will be an opportunity to purchase the drinks you've sampled. A limited stock of Daftmill's Summer 2010 Release and 2007 Release, 15 Year Old Fife Strength will be available to purchase by ballot for those interested.
