Episode 2: Savour The Artisanal Spirit

There’s an intuitive connection between nature and the Scottish psyche. To savour the famous Scottish palate, Kunal takes a culinary journey around the country, stopping by Glasgow for delicious haggis, and the Aberlour village for an introduction to malt whisky’s quintessential ingredient: barley. But the cherry on the cake is a food and whisky pairing session at the beautiful Aberlour distillery!

Episode 3: Sip of Luxury

Luxury fits Scotland like a glove. In this episode, Kunal meets contemporary kiltmaker Howie Nicholsby in his Edinburgh studio and visits Cromlix, a luxury hotel owned by tennis legend Andy Murray. These are all a lead-up to the final destination: Strathisla, the oldest operating distillery in Speyside and Home of the Chivas Regal.

Episode 4: A Toast to The Unswayed

To truly experience Scotland’s culture, Kunal meets the people who have played a role in building it.

But none more than Ballantine’s Master Blender Sandy Hyslop at his home turf, the Glenburgie Distillery!

Episode 5: Blend of New Royalty

There’s no doubt Scotland has a regal heritage, but by no means is that in the past. In this episode, Kunal experiences the modern embodiments of royalty, whether it’s the Duke of Argyll at his Inverary Castle estate, or the resplendent Royal Yacht Britannia in Leith. But the true ode to royalty is his experience at the Royal Salute Vault, where sips liquid gold reserved for the Monarch.
