A SAUCE made from whisky worth £1m is being dished up at a country fair in Scotland.

Foodies and whisky aficionados can delight their taste buds when the one-of-a-kind whisky sauce is served at Galloway Country Fair this weekend.

The sauce, made from cask number one of Annandale Distillery’s first unpeated single malt Man o’ Word, will be used for a recipe in the Fair’s Galloway Demo Kitchen.

This will be the first and only use of the whisky, named after Robert Burns, before it is out away to mature for a decade. The cask, which is almost five years old, is currently on sale for £1million.

The unique sauce will be prepared by Bronze Young Chef of the Year, Fraser Cameron, to accompany a Galloway Beef fillet stuffed with St James whisky smoked salmon, meaux mustard mayonnaise and glazed hickory smoked silver skin onions.

“We’re honoured to have the whisky making its debut in a recipe at our event alongside an array of fantastic local suppliers.”

Dorothy Goldie, Secretary of the Galloway Cattle Society, said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Galloway Country Fair and with Annandale Distillery to showcase some of Dumfries & Galloway’s most iconic quality food and drink.

“Locally reared Galloway Beef combined with local whisky, Fraser’s chef skills and the stunning venue of Drumlanrig Castle is an unbeatable combination.”

Housed in the Food & Drink marquee, The Galloway Demo Kitchen will welcome demonstrations from Fraser Cameron as well as Auldgirth Inn, forager Amy Rankine, Crafty Gin Distillery and Ninefold Rum across the weekend.
