Looks like David Chang and Wolfgang Puck aren't the only restaurateurs getting into the booze business; Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud has partnered with The Dalmore brand to launch a single malt Scotch whisky, Bourbon Blog reports.

The Dalmore Selected by Daniel Boulud is Boulud's first spirits project; in the past, Boulud has collaborated with wine and champagne private labels.

Boulud's Scotch whisky will be served at various Boulud restaurants starting in April, served neat with a bit of water to open up the flavor. First up on the whisky list: Daniel, Café Boulud, and most likely Boulud Sud. Boulud's classic French cuisine paired with a single malt Scotch? It's the very definition of class.

A price has yet to be determined, although it will most likely fall in between the $45 to $60 range of high-end pours at Boulud restaurants. A Dalmore representative tells us the Scotch is a "masculine, robust Scotch" with notes of plum from port in the cask and a sweetness from madeira wood.

More Boulud restaurants will eventually serve The Dalmore/Boulud Scotch, as Boulud is considering serving the Scotch in cocktails at restaurants like DBGB (not to mention selling the bottle in retail stores).

Other restaurateurs have toyed with creating their own brews and liquors in the past; Wolfgang Puck's wine line is available in retail stores, while David Chang of Momofuku has tweeted that they are brewing a Momofuku beer. Chang's tasting note goals? A mix of Bud Light, Coors Light, and Tecate. We know one editor here who would be down for that.
