Event video: Whisky & London Cure Smoked Salmon

Written by , Posted in Videos

Our East London events space Forman’s Fish Island often works with household names. Last year, Glenfiddich saw the perfect opportunity to pair their Scottish whisky with H.

Guests were treated to a smoked salmon carving demonstration by our very own Guinness World Record holder, Darren Matson, whilst their expert cocktail mixologist raced against the clock to keep up with Darren’s speedy carving!
