Johnnie Walker Celebrated at Exclusive Sydney Dinner Hosted by Matt Preston

At an exclusive sold-out event last week at Sydney’s BLACK restaurant, award-winning food journalist, best-selling author, co-host and judge of MasterChef Australia Matt Preston hosted a Johnnie Walker whisky tasting and dinner, showcasing some of the best and rarest expressions from Johnnie Walker’s much-celebrated range of blended whiskies.

Preston, who was joined by Johnnie Walker’s Australian whisky ambassador Katie Nagar and Executive Chef at The Star’s BLACK Bar & Grill Dany Karam, talked guests through the flavour profiles of some of the Johnnie Walker Whisky portfolio served throughout the evening and their respectively paired dishes.

Whiskies served included Johnnie Walker 18-Year-Old, Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost And Rare Brora, Johnnie Walker King George and The John Walker, paired with seasonal dishes from a specially curated menu including a Wagyu rump cap MBS 9+, served with white polenta, exotic mushrooms, charred onion and crispy sweetbreads, as well as a bold blue-cheese and chocolate creation served to finish.

First crafted in a humble grocer’s shop in 1865, Johnnie Walker is the world’s best-selling Scotch whisky, and has taken blended Scotch whisky from the four corners of Scotland to the four corners of the world.
