Running from 7pm till late, tickets are available from www.wildfig-twb.brownpapertickets.com priced at £45 per person and the event will be a relaxed evening of food, drink and good company, featuring international flavours in the form of a spicy street-food inspired menu, perfect for a cold November night.

Wild Fig Catering is a bespoke catering company founded by renowned chef, Justin Maule. With over 20 years of experience in some of the finest kitchens in Scotland, Justin is trained in the classic French style and is recognised as one of the country's best chefs.

The Distillery is located at The Whisky Bond (www.thewhiskybond.co.uk), one of Glasgow's leading commercial hubs for creative businesses. Located on Glasgow's Canal at the heart of the newly emerging Speirs Locks district – just a ten minute walk from both Cowcaddens and St George's Cross Subway Stations - TWB spreads out over seven floors and offers 100,000 sq. ft. of space to those working mainly in the creative and cultural industries. The Distillery is its co-working space, designed specifically for freelancers and start-ups. A limited amount of space is currently available to let in both The Whisky Bond and The Distillery.

Helen Teeling, Distillery Manager, said: "This will be the second time that we have hosted Wild Fig at The Distillery – we had such fantastic feedback last time that we are excited to be announcing a second pop-up event. Wild Fig creates the ultimate dining experience and its founder and lead Chef, Justin Maule, is regarded as one of Scotland's absolute best.

“At The Distillery we consistently look to bring new experiences and high quality events not only to our tenants but to the local community, and to have Justin Maule and his team cooking here is hugely exciting as his food is renowned. We're expecting tickets for this pop-up to sell quickly as places are limited so would recommend buying quickly to avoid missing out.”

Chef Justin Maule, founder of Wild Fig, added: “'We're delighted to be holding another dining event at The Whisky Bond, it's such a great space. As usual we will be using great Scottish seafood and produce, and as a Land of Food and Drink Ambassador Chef - committed to championing Scotland's rich larder of world class produce - I'm especially excited about the salt and chilli scallops, which combine one of Scotland's finest products with the chilli spice of Asian street food.”
