Woodford Reserve Whiskey Pairing Dinner

I enjoyed learning about Woodford Reserve Whiskey while enjoying a delicious dinner featuring a selection of flavourful dishes from Chef Kiran Kolathodan and his team at Prohibition in the Rosewood Hotel Georgia.

Each dish was paired to each of the whiskeys presented along with an informative talk by the brand ambassador Taylor Corrigan who explained the process of their bourbon and whiskey.
