China Dinner

Chengdu, May 16, 2015

Exceptional whisky journey in a prestigious venue for the Bailliage of Chengdu

The Johnnie Walker House in China was first opened in Shanghai, soon followed by a second lounge in Beijing. A third one recently opened its doors in Chengdu, capital city of Sichuan Province.

This prestigious lounge quickly attracted many celebrities and whisky lovers. It offers delicious gourmet dining and a premium whisky pairing experience. Not surprisingly for its first dinner of the year, the Bailliage of Chengdu chose the Johnnie Walker House for a ‘Scottish Gala’ themed dinner.

The evening started by a welcome cocktail served with whisky based cocktails followed by a menu in which each dish was paired with specially selected Johnnie Walker whisky. The mouth-watering dinner started with a review of the history Johnnie Walker whiskies as well as a liquid nitrogen cooking demonstration by the Executive Chef.
