Scotch Tasting Experience Gift Set Highlights

Scotch is produced in Scotland; however, the whisky is produced only in certain regions. There are five primary scotch whisky production regions, namely: Highland, Lowland, Speyside, Campbeltown and Islay. The Islands are not considered by all as a region of its own, however scotch from the Islands can be described as a milder version of Islay whisky (sort of like a hybrid between Highland and Islay whiskies).

Although each scotch is unique, the whisky produced in each region have some common characteristics that separate them from scotch from other regions.

GREEN & BLACK’s Organic Dark Chocolate For Scotch Sampler Gift Set

Dark chocolate and scotch make a great match. The warming, complex nature of most scotch complements the luxurious, creamy texture of good chocolate.

The underlying sweetness and alcohol bite to scotch is offset extremely well by the more bitter and lingering flavor of dark chocolate.

Our organic Dark 70% chocolate from GREEN & BLACK’s is made from fine Trinitario cacao beans, providing complex fruit notes and intense bittersweet chocolate aromas.

GREEN & BLACK’S is a chocolate brand founded on sustainable and ethical cocoa sourcing principles.

A great addition to a scotch birthday gift for those looking to buy scotch samples online.
