Cooking with whisky

Whisky - and in particular Cock o'the North Single Malt Whisky Liqueur can be used in a variety of culinary recipes calling for spirits or alcohol:

  • substitute it for cognac in flambé bananas
  • create a Scottish version of "Irish coffee"
  • use it to flavour a venison marinade
  • pour it over vanilla ice cream
  • liven up a plain cake recipe...
  • In short, let your imagination guide you!

Chicken - Main Dish Recipe

For 2 (double up ingredients for 4, and triple for 6... etc.)


Two generous chicken leg or breast portions (preferably organic)
Olive oil or butter
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
One large red or yellow or orange bell pepper
Large clove of garlic
Two spring onions
Generous dash of Cock o' the North Whisky Liqueur


On stove top heat a frying pan (for which you have a lid), then add olive oil or butter. Brown the chicken while you chop up the bell pepper and add to pan with crushed garlic, brown a bit more and turn chicken over, add the liqueur, salt and pepper, reduce heat and pop on the lid until chicken is cooked (you may need to add a few drops of water to avoid it sticking or a bit more whisky). Serve with a large green salad and freshly steamed green beans or mashed potatoes. Very yummy.... and the "blaeberry" flavour really comes through!!!
