Written By Colin Hynes Libations / Spirits / Victoria Apr 15, 2014 Little Jumbo Partners with Scotch Malt Whisky Society SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestLast night was a big night for Little Jumbo. They became one of a handful of places that can serve whiskies from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society. Shawn Soole now has at his disposal an array of fine whiskies from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society that you can go in and try, generally a privilege reserved for members of the society. Last night was different from the usual society meeting as well—they usually meet once a month and sample the latest whiskies acquired, but last night the general public were allowed to attend and they were serving whiskies that even the members hadn’t tried yet and we can’t talk about…yet—there were a lot of members that came for this very reason.Top Photo: Shawn, his chef Justin, Kelly and Rob from the Society Shawn and chef Justin Hardiman had paired each of the whiskies for the night with a canapé, including the pictured pork belly (left) and smoked brisket with sauerkraut (right). All were delicious, paired well and, hopefully, Shawn makes the pairings permanent! SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Colin Hynes Colin is the Assistant Editor at EAT.
