VDeep: Scotland’s first craft beer & curry bar launches in Edinburgh


Promising craft beer, curry and communal dining, VDeep - Scotland's first craft beer and curry bar - was launched in Edinburgh today.

A brand new partnership between celebrity chef, comedian and TV presenter, Hardeep Singh Kohli - and the team behind the award-winning Vintage Leith,
VDeep seeks to bring together the nation's two great loves - craft beer and curry.

Runner-up on Celebrity Master Chef (2009) and consultant chef for a number of high profile eateries, VDeep is Kohli's first bar and restaurant.
A craft beer destination with a twist, VDeep offers drinkers and diners a mouthwatering menu of 10 craft keg beers, 3 craft cask beers, over 20 bottled
craft beers and 21 contemporary Indian dishes.

A collaboration between between Hardeep Singh Kohli and Head Chef Ruairidh Skinner, the VDeep menu features original recipes such as 'Bangras & Mash', 'Cauliflower Cheese Curry' and 'Pork Cheek Vindaloo'; all inspired by Hardeep's childhood, craft beer culture and classic British cuisine. 

On collaborating with Head Chef, Ruairidh Skinner Hardeep comments "There isn't another chef I would have collaborated with on project that fuses curry and craft beer so closely. I've worked with some of the best chefs in the world but Ruairidh's ability to devise revolutionary dishes is just inspiring."

Communal craft beer and curry pairing will be at the core of the VDeep experience, with craft beers from other 30 different breweries used to complement and contrast the flavours of the curries on offer.

Vindabrew - a limited edition guest beer brewed by Hardeep, Ruairidh and Operations Director Darren Blackburn - has been specially created for the launch of VDeep. The 5.5% cardamom-infused IPA is the first in a series of small batch craft beers designed to pair with curry and created by the team behind the restaurant.

VDeep will open to the public from Saturday (21st February), with bookings taken via phone - 0131 563 5293 - and online via www.vdeep.co.uk
