It's National Fish and Chip Day tomorrow and one of Glasgow's most popular city centre chippies is set to give away free fish suppers.

The first 50 customers who walk through Blue Lagoon Gordon Street's doors on Thursday (June 6) and ask for a ‘The Single Cask Saucy Sensation’ will be given a free take away supper - with a special whisky-infused sauce.

Fife-based The Single Cask have been working with local supplier The Whisky Sauce Co to create a range of delicious single cask whisky sauces. The bottles will be on offer at The Single Cask events throughout the year and are available to buy online now from their official website.

The Single Cask 'Chippy Sauce' is made using a nine-year-old single-cask whisky from Benrinnes Distillery and uses balsamic vinegar of Modena to create that classic sweet and spicy flavour. Often associated with Edinburgh residents, The Single Cask are confident that Glaswegians will approve of their delicious single cask whisky 'Chippy Sauce'.

A Glasgow fave for nearly 50 years, Italian-born entrepreneur Ersilio Varese and childhood sweetheart Edda Varese opened the first Blue Lagoon fish and chip shop on Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street in 1975. The company is now headed up by Director Alessandro Varese, who manages venues across the city.

Founded in Fife, The Whisky Sauce Co specialises in creating the best whisky sauces in the country - creating a single cask range for the first time which were debuted to lucky whisky fans at Feis Ile whisky festival on Islay at the end of May.

The Single Cask recently took on the challenge of demystifying whisky flavour as they relaunched their brand. By using five mood categories, whisky fans can quickly navigate to whichever whiskies they are in the mood for.

Brand marketing manager at The Single Cask, Helen Stewart, said: “Glasgow is such an exciting city and to partner with someone with the legendary history of Blue Lagoon is really special. We believe this collaboration showcases both flavour and character extremely well, two things that are very important to us at The Single Cask."

Adding his thoughts on the partnership, Alessandro Varese, Director at Blue Lagoon said: “We strive to give the people of Glasgow the best fish and chips in the city. The Single Cask whisky is exceptional. It works deliciously in the ‘Chippy Sauce’ they have created. Their approach to flavour lends itself perfectly to our Fish Suppers at Blue Lagoon.

“As we always say, think fish and chips, think Blue Lagoon - this partnership will definitely get people thinking about our fish suppers on International Fish & Chip Day!”
