Scotch Beef Pairing Shows True Scottish Spirit

Scotch Beef PGI has teamed up with Huntly-based Black Bull Scotch Whisky and leading Aberdeen chef Kevin Dalgleish on a recipe that showcases the true spirit of Scotland.

Kevin, who is executive chef at The Chester Hotel and a former Masterchef: The Professionals finalist, devised a dish that complements the richness of Scotch Beef with Black Bull’s vibrant flavours.

He will be demonstrating his ‘Scotch Beef ribeye steak with peppercorn and Black Bull whisky sauce’ at the upcoming Taste of Grampian festival, taking place on Saturday 1 June at Thainstone Centre, Inverurie.

As the main sponsors of the event, Scotch Beef will be showcasing the fantastic qualities of the product, including its versatility and famous taste, during two cooking demonstration sessions with Black Bull whisky in the outdoor cooking marquee and Seafood area.

Kirsty Fox, Marketing Manager from Quality Meat Scotland, which promotes Scotch Beef PGI, said: “We’re proud to bring together two iconic Scottish products to highlight how they work just as well together as they do on their own.

“There are many similarities between Black Bull and Scotch Beef PGI. Both are produced by dedicated craftspeople, use the finest ingredients and result in a delicious product that is recognised around the world. We’re now looking forward to sharing the flavours with visitors at Taste of Grampian next week.”

Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky’s Marketing Manager, Julie Smith commented: “With origins dating back to 1864, Black Bull Scotch Whisky is the ideal partner to team up with Quality Meat Scotland for this event.  Black Bull whiskies are blended at an unusually high malt-to-grain ratio and bottled at a robust 50% ABV.  Black Bull 8-year old offers a powerful sensory experience with a hint of spice and citrus notes, so should make the perfect accompaniment to the beef dish Kevin is preparing.”

As the headline sponsor of this year’s Taste of Grampian festival, visitors will be able to find out all about Scotch Beef’s strong sustainability and welfare messages that set Scotland’s beef industry brand apart.
