From the Heart of the Scottish Highlands –

TasteTalk presents shared moments of pure pleasure

We call our tasting events FLINGS focussing on the sampling of world-beating and locally made chocolate truffles paired with Scotland’s finest spirits.

When you have an hour or two to spare, there is no better thing than a Fling – whether you live in this beautiful area or are paying us a visit.

Our Taste Ambassadors host these unique tasting events at hotels and other convinial venues around the area. Or why not book for a Fling in our popular Tasting Lounge and Shop in beautiful Dunkeld?

A Scottish Triumph

While away an hour or two exploring the magic of fine chocolate truffles paired with Scotland’s smoothest oak-aged malts and extra-special gins.

Close by in Grandtully, Iain Burnett has gained world fame as a master chocolatier blending locally sourced fresh cream, the finest single-origin cocoa beans, and natural flavourings.

Equally compelling is the story behind our carefully chosen whiskies and gins, which tell a triumphant Scottish tale. These yeasty concoctions of ancient and modern recipes using locally grown and malted barley have conquered the world.

Each Taste Talk gathering is a complete entertainment guided by our Ambassadors. With music and film mixed in, they make sure every Fling goes with a swing.

Wonderful ways to have a Fling

Individuals or groups can book a Fling through our website, by email, phone, or in person at our Dunkeld base. And if time is short, we offer MiniFlings – audio-guided pairings of our signature products. Our shop and display area sells chocolates, miniatures, and special TasteTalk Kit packed with everything needed to host your own home-based Fling.

Coming to us

Flings for groups big or tiny are held at our premises in Dunkeld and nearby Dunkeld House Hotel on Mondays and Thursdays. If time is limited, come by for a MiniFling – booking is not necessary, and they last just 40 minutes.

Joining a LOOP

These are customised tours bringing you to Dunkeld for a Fling. Our Minibus Guide collects you from Pitlochry (and soon, Perth) at set times on Mondays and Thursdays. Taking a LOOP means no one worries about having to drive.

Coming to you

Calling all hospitality organisers: we bring a Fling to your venue. Whether this a regular event or a one-off, our Taste Ambassadors come equipped with everything needed to entertain and inspire your guests.

Having a party

Lift spirits and make a Fling part of your party. Whatever size, we can add a unique element to any family or social gathering especially special celebrations including weddings. You choose the time and the place and leave the rest to us.

Buying a kit

The next best thing to a live Fling is our Fling in a box! Our Kits contain everything needed to host your own Fling however far flung you may be. Enough for up to eight people and available here online and at our Dunkeld shop.

Ian Burnett Highland Chocolatier


The Highland Chocolatier

Iain Burnett – the Highland Chocolatier – is recognised as a world-class artisan chocolatier with over 45 national and international awards. Based a few miles from Taste Talk, he is now the premier Scottish truffle expert which explains why distilleries are keen to match the textures and flavours of his truffles with their premium products.


Perfectly Paired Whiskies & Gins

Equally compelling is the story behind our whisky and gin selections. The art of producing the finest distillations is a crucial part of the story our Ambassadors communicate at every Fling. Just like the chocolates so lovingly crafted by Iain, the process is complex and dependent on the finest ingredients. Ancient recipes, the purity of the local watercourses, the quality of the grain, manipulated with distinctive skill.
