A first in the Garden Route for The Lighthouse Restaurant - Glenfiddich Whisky Tasting Evening a great success!

The Lighthouse Restaurant proudly hosted a Glenfiddich Whisky Tasting evening 2 weeks ago, which was the first of its kind in the Garden Route. Guests were treated to a tasting of the 12, 15 and 18 year old Glenfiddich Single Malt Whisky with the suave Glenfiddich Whisky Ambassador, Sivu Nobo guiding them eloquently through the selection.

The Glenfiddich 12 year old was tasted with a starter of Franschhoek Salmon Trout and Roasted Eggplant and Red Pepper Tapenade served on Rosemary brushed Crostini. This was followed by a Moroccan inspired second course of Lamb and Apricot Tagine and Harissa Infused Grilled Chicken Breast served with Moroccan Tomato Jam which revealed the fruity gentle spice of the Glenfiddich's 15 year old. And saving the best for last, guests tucked into a delicious dessert course of Date and Apple Polenta Cake with white and dark chocolate dipped Strawberries which was perfectly rounded off by the Glenfiddich's 18 Year Old with its scent of apple and wood.

Join us on the 24th November for an evening of Wine Pairing with Louisvale Wines situated in the picturesque Devon Valley just outside Stellenbosch. Winemaker to the estate for the last 14 years, Simon Smith, whose passion for the vine and his wines is evident in the fruits of his labour, will personally take you through a tasting of four of Louisvale's best wines. Louisvale's reputation for quality is built on its Chardonnay and our Executive Chef has created a stunning five course menu at only R160pp which will perfectly match these wines, which have over the past 20 years garnered a host of awards and accolades.
