Acclaimed chef Josh Niland is hosting a ‘wild dining’ pop-up with Talisker Whisky

Acclaimed chef Josh Niland is hosting a ‘wild dining’ pop-up with Talisker Whisky
For two days only, Australian chef Josh Niland is hosting an exclusive restaurant in the wild, in collaboration with Talisker Whisky.

The ‘wild dining’ experience sees Talisker’s Boasthouse transformed into a unique pop-up restaurant. Situated on the rugged cliffs of North Head, New South Wales, the ‘Taste of Talisker’ experience offers guests a rare chance to sample a sustainably sourced seafood menu inspired by the flavours of Talisker.

Guests have the chance to book two experiences. First, on the 21 October, a dining adventure hosted by Niland himself, which features a three-course paired menu. For a more relaxed bar experience, the Taste of Talisker two-hour guided whisky experience can be booked between 12pm – 9pm on 22 October, taking guests on a sampling journey of the Talisker range, while enjoying bar snacks from Niland’s Saint Peter restaurant.

Niland, who has carved out a reputation as a sustainably-driven chef with a focus on ethically-sourced seafood, says the collaboration with Talisker presents an exciting opportunity for a whisky and cuisine exploration.

“I wanted to capture the wild spirit of the sea paired with key aromas of Talisker – smoke, spice and a sense of sea salt spray in the morning after a storm,” he says. “Years of maturation made by the sea has lent a full flavour to this bold dram and this menu celebrates Talisker’s rich flavours while honouring the sea in a sustainable and ethical way.”

Taste of Talisker is available exclusively for two nights only, tickets strictly limited.
