Botswana Butchery Wagyu x Nikka Whisky Degustation Event

Botswana Butchery is offering Sydneysiders a spectacular dinner event with a degustation menu of wagyu dishes and Nikka Whisky drink pairings on Wednesday 13 September 2023.

Known for its delicious steaks and meat dishes, Botswana Butchery prides itself on quality produce and unique dining experiences and the Wagyu x Nikka Whisky pairing event is one such experience that will be enjoyed by those who simply enjoy great food and drinks to connoisseurs alike.

We are booked in and ready to return to the plush surrounds of the Sydney CBD Botswana Butchery restaurant as the talented team plates up four dishes of the very best cuts of wagyu, followed by a palate cleanser and dessert. And accompanied by a range of perfectly paired, exquisite Nikka whisky drinks.

Alongside the food and drinks, guests will also hear talks from Botswana Butchery Executive Chef Angel Fernandez, award winning Botswana Butchery’s Bar Manager Ruben Beasley, who recently won the Nikka Perfect Serve 2023 Competition and Nikka Whisky Ambassador Marcus Parmenter. Ruben’s award-winning cocktail is also the last cocktail served.
