Laphroaig Taste Trailblazers Dinner Series: Sophisticated 5-Course Menu at The Bailey

Laphroaig Taste Trailblazers Dinner Series The Bailey

The Bailey, a traditional French-inspired brasserie in Bree Street, gearing up for Laphroaig Single Malt Scotch Whisky’s Taste Trailblazers Dinner Series with an unforgettable 5-course meal.

Inspired by Islay, Taste Trailblazers challenges some of the best eateries in Cape Town to merge the best of their kitchen and bar skills to create a series of culinary experiences based on the three taste pillars that make Laphroaig the nest single malt Scotch Whisky – salt, fire and peat.

The restaurants participating in the Taste Trailblazers competition will host pop-up dinner experiences and be in the running to win the grand prize of a trip to Fèis Ìle 2024 (Islay Whisky Festival).

Crafted 5-Course Culinary Journey

The Bailey’s 5-course dinner experience spotlights a mix of South African and international ingredients and classic techniques. Sink your teeth into a charcoal-baked oyster mushroom ceviche, American oak smoked salmon, charcoal roast venison, aged Gruberg with black garlic sponge and petit fours to end a perfectly paired Laphroaig dining experience.

The unique culinary journey is complemented by easy-drinking cocktails that even people who have not acquired the taste for a peated whisky can enjoy.

The menu is carefully curated by Chef Asher Abramowitz and bartender Cameron Paulse who are inspired by their personal knowledge of ingredients and pairing those with Laphroaig’s three flavour pillars while bearing in mind its homeland of Islay. The cocktails are designed to enhance flavours and pair well with dishes but do not take away the true flavour of Laphroaig.

When: Wednesday, 27 September at 6pm
Cost: R900pp, book via or call 021 773 0440
