Playing with fire
The art of BBQ meets the joys of whisky

There’s just something undeniably special about al fresco dining with friends. So as the summer hots up and the light evenings stretch on ’til late, we recommend taking that bottle of Compass Box outside, firing up the BBQ and enjoying some of our favourite food under the sun.

We love what the fantastic people at Pitt Cue Co. are doing with fire, so we wanted to share some of their great creations with you, alongside our recommendations for delicious summer whisky serves. Pitt Cue Co.’s obsessive search for the perfect flamed-grilled fare matches our own insatiable appetite for discovery, so browse the recipes below and join us in our shared pursuit of flavour.
