Iain has worked with Master Distillers from distilleries all over Scotland such as Balblair, Cardhu, Dalmore, Dalwhinnie, Deanston, Dewars Aberfeldy, Glenfiddich, Glengoyne, Knockando, Lagavulin, Macallan, Talisker, Tobermory and Tullibardine. The Whisky Pairing Tasting Boxes come with Iain's tasting notes which add insight to the experience. Iain Burnett creates these magical whisky & chocolate pairings entirely by nosing the whisky, he pairs the fragrances and aromas with some of the most exotic and unique flavours in his handmade Velvet Truffles.

Enhanced Distillery Tours Pairing Whisky with Iain's Chocolates
"The combination of flavours went brilliantly... People that consider themselves 'non-whisky drinkers' try it with chocolate, then say 'I never knew I liked whisky before!'" Distillery Manager, Dalwhinnie
Bespoke Chocolate Showpieces
Iain and his team make bespoke showpieces for clients such as the gorgeous half metre tall, 5kg lace egg below. Made entirely with São Tomé single-origin dark chocolate and graced with delicate gold-burnished butterflies, it was created for a distillery shop promoting a special 21 year old malt (displayed standing inside the egg) which had been paired with one of Iain's chocolates.
