Nikka Whisky Bread

Those crazy French. Always doing crazy French things – like pouring a bottle of whisky into a loaf of bread. It’s a rather bold thing to do. They use Nikka From The Barrel, one of the best value for money blends you can buy.

Actually, Nikka From The Barrel is an astounding whisky (and comes in a lovely, quirky 500ml bottle) so part of me gets a little twitchy at seeing macadamia nuts, chestnuts and figs being marinated in it for 24 hours before being used in bread.

But hey, the French know a thing or two about food, so what do I know? I dare say that this loaf of bread doesn’t come cheap…


I've written about (and reviewed) whisky for Whisky Magazine, among other publications, and have been a whisky judge for competitions including the World Whiskies Awards. I've done other writing too: several mass market genre novels, a few short stories, including for BBC Radio 4. For my day job (I know, I don't get out much) I work in digital content. Follow me on Instagram.com/maltreview/ or Twitter.com/MaltReview. Generally, my tastes lean towards ex-sherry cask and ex-wine cask influences on the spirit, but I'm not so fussed as long as the whisky's gone into good wood.
