Nothing says winter like curling up in front of the fireplace with a warm, hearty meal. French toast is a classic treat and a perfect companion for whisky – and what better whisky to pair it with than Canada’s Glen Breton!
Glen Breton is an award-winning single malt whisky made by Canada’s oldest distillery, located on Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Island. This whisky has an unmistakable flavor profile of rich, smoky peat, dried fruit and citrus zest – making it an excellent partner for French toast.
When preparing your French toast for pairing with Glen Breton, consider using bread that has deeper flavors such as multigrain or rye. If you want something sweet and creamy, try adding maple syrup to the French toast before pouring a glass of Glen Breton on the rocks (without any added mixers) for extra complexity. If you’re looking for something bolder, opt for French toast topped with nut butter or almond butter and then pour yourself a generous helping of aged single-malt whisky.
For something particularly smoky in flavor, you can’t go wrong with grilling your French toast over an open flame before adding it to your plate. The smokey aroma will contrast perfectly with the woodsy undertones of Glen Breton while creating an unbeatable combination that will keep you cozy all night long! Don't forget to garnish your dish - fresh orange slices add subtle sweetness while further enhancing the smooth yet complex flavors of this special malt whisky.
Whether you prefer mellow complexity or bold smokiness, no other whisky pairs better with freshly made French toast than Canada's own Glen Breton! So grab your bottle of Glen Breton and some freshly sliced bread – it’s time to get creative in the kitchen and enjoy a delicious wintery treat in front of the fireplace!
