After much team work, testing and tasting, the two Norfolk-based companies created The English Whisky Macaron, which will be available from Friday, August 18.

The unique twist on the French macaron features smokey single malt whisky which is formed into a jelly cube and encased inside a meringue shell with a stem ginger and white chocolate ganache.

Tim Kinnaird, founder of Macarons & More, said: 'I was delighted to take up the challenge of developing a whisky macaron.

'This is a very grown up cake and something a bit different for us. We wanted to let the flavour of the whisky speak for itself.'

The English Whisky Macarons cost £1.70 each and are being sold at Macarons & More's shop in Norwich's Royal Arcade, as well as online and at The English Whisky Co.'s distillery bistro in Roudham.
