STARWARD & MICHELIN. THE PERFECT PAIRING.
Starward crafts whisky for the bold, creative and irrepressibly curious food lovers out there. And Michelin, of course, has been the leading authority in the culinary arts since they launched their first restaurant guide back in 1920. We are both enthusiasts and catalysts of culinary innovation, and now our stars have aligned. Starward is proud to be the Official Whisky Partner of the MICHELIN Guide.
Over the next 12 months we'll be working with the MICHELIN Guide on a G*Astronomy series to shine a light on chefs from newly Michelin rated restaurants in Chicago, Los Angels, New York City, San Francisco and Washington, DC. We hope this inspires you as much as it does all of our team to go bold with Starward and bring whisky to your dinner table.
