CALUM LESLIE founder of PEATREEKERS WHISKY
Christmas isn’t complete without a cocktail, what’s your ultimate go-to festive tipple? An Old Fashioned made with Peatreekers whisky, a cube of brown sugar, two dashes of Smoke and Oak from Ms Better’s Bitters and garnished with an orange peel.
What does Christmas at Peatreekers look like? Christmas is our busiest time of year, so it’s a month i lled with orders, emails, last minute promos and pop-up events . . . whilst listening to Christmas songs on repeat.
Who is your favourite chef or what is your favourite cookbook for festive cooking inspiration? Gordon Ramsay as he’s unapologetic, entertaining and a pretty good cook. How can you spice up the usual Christmas side dishes to give them an exciting twist? Add a dash of whisky. Never fails.
How would you convince someone to eat out for their Christmas meal? Use the principles of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) by describing an unmissable meal.
Are you an eat your advent calendar all at once or strictly one per day sort of person? Strictly once a day, although the temptation of all-in-one-go creeps in every morning.
Do you have any recipes or food traditions that have been passed down in your family? My grandmother’s fudge. She should have swapped her career as a hairdresser to set up a candy business. What is your Christmas showstopper? My cooking skills are a little limited, so I tend to pull out my mixology skills and mix up an array of cocktails.
