Whether it’s a hostess gift, a present for your boss, in-laws, or friends, we’ve compiled the best pairings from Bowmore and Läderach’s extensive collections. These pairings are sure to make sure your gift stands out from the rest.

Bowmore 12-Year-Old and Läderach Vegan FrischSchoggi™ Pouch

Reflecting the essence of Bowmore – thrashing waves, windswept landscapes, and generations of tradition – Bowmore 12-Year-Old is both complex and perfectly balanced. Subtle lemon and sweet leather honey complement Bowmore’s trademark peat smoke, leading to a delicious, long, and mellow finish. This expression pairs perfectly with the Läderach vegan FrischSchoggi™ Pouch, especially with the piece of Brazilian Grand Cru Brazil 70 percent chocolate among the assorted pieces. The assortment of some of Läderach’s new plant-based varieties paired with a classic Bowmore expression makes this combination the perfect gift for the foodie in your life!

Bowmore 15-Year-Old and Läderach Creamy Vegan Cashew Tablet

There is no better example of a sherry cask finish than Bowmore 15-Year-Old. The final three years spent in Oloroso casks give this whisky’s expression its signature rich, deep colour and robust warming finish. Classic Bowmore smokiness with aromas of delicious dark chocolate and raisin make this spirit the perfect match for the Läderach Creamy Vegan Cashew Tablet. With luscious aromas on the nose and a full-bodied, nutty taste on the tongue, this combination is sure to delight all lovers of luxury and sensorial experiences.

Bowmore 18-Year-Old and Läderach Creamy Vegan Cashew Popcorn

One of Bowmore’s most renowned whiskies, Bowmore 18-Year-Old is only available for a limited time around the holidays each year, making it all the more special. This expression is a masterful combination of ripe fruit, dark chocolate, and Islay smoke. Pair it with Läderach’s own masterful combination: the Creamy Vegan Cashew Popcorn. This crunchy, caramelized popcorn with vegan creamy cashew chocolate mixed with vegan dark chocolate perfectly complements the creamy caramel toffee notes and chocolate flavours of Bowmore 18-Year-Old. It’s a combination that is sure to win over the most discerning people on your holiday list.

These expertly paired recommendations are sure to catch the attention of Scotch enthusiasts who appreciate the best whisky the world has to offer, but also the attention of anyone who appreciates exceptional chocolate.
