When it comes to pairing whiskey with food, few dishes match up as well as pie. From fruit to spice to chocolate to nuts, whiskey and pie share a lot of common flavors meaning there is an abundance of combinations to explore. We served three pies—pecan, pumpkin, and cherry—alongside rye and bourbon to see how they complemented one another. Pour a few drams for yourself and see which pairing you like the best.
If you’re interested in making whisky cocktails at home, you’ll need these bar tools and a few choice mixers.
