I’ve long been a fan of Islay single-malt whiskeys for their complexity, which is often characterized by the distinct smoky aroma and lingering peaty notes unique to whiskies produced in this region of Scotland. So when Moet Hennessey and Ardbeg invited us to an exclusive 3 day #ARDVENTURE, it was clearly an offer that we could simply not refuse.

It was rather surreal to be sitting down for lunch with an influential figure in Toronto’s culinary scene– but it happened. If anything, it just reinforces the notion that the person we sat down with — Chef Mark McEwan — is a very down-to- earth individual.

At Bymark restaurant, in the bustling financial district of Toronto, we tasted a marriage of Canadian food with wine from New Zealand. It was a deliberate showcase seasonal ingredients and wines that complement the flavours…
