To celebrate Burns Night, I enjoyed a wonderful evening with #LoveScotch to discover all the delicious variety of Scotch whiskys. Keep reading to find out more.
Scotch whiskey has always been associated to being our fathers or grandfathers drink, but since David Beckham ventured into the Scotch business young adults are starting to take notice of the drink again. Many young adults are now enjoying and discovering the flavours and diversity of scotch, myself included!
Scotch whisky is enjoyed by arbiters of taste from all over the world-over, and the #lovescotch movement allows an insight into the modern world of Scotch whisky. This year the #LoveScotch cocktail pop-up experience at The Drift perfectly demonstrates the versatility of Scotch and is a great way for guests to celebrate Burns Night with family or friends in style. The masterclass is available to anyone wishing to participate throughout the month of January.
Our evening kicked off with the #LoveScotch brand ambassador Doug Graham-Leigh telling the group more about the #LoveScotch movement and Scotch’s heritage. Moving onto the Burns Night evening supper, we were offered an alternative twist on the normal dining experience with a Scotchtail paired to each meal. Throughout the evening traditional cocktails, including the Espresso Martini, Moscow Mule and even a Champagne Cocktail, all got a Scotch Highland twist as we toasted with our#Scotchtails in honour of Robbie Burns.
I ordered the Scotch Eggs to start then a Venison Pie which were expertly paired with #Scotchtail that complimented the flavours of the food and to showcase the true versatility of Scotch whisky.
Following our delicious dinner, an exclusive masterclass took place in the snug area of The Drift bar, where Brand Ambassador Doug Graham-Leigh lead us through the steps of making your very own scotch cocktail accompanied by our Jaffa cake deserts and demonstrating the mixibility of the world’s favourite dram, Talisker Scotch.
The evening honestly was such a wonderful experience for me, for a fairly light drinker the evening proved that there is a dram for everyone, no matter their flavour preference and with some unique twists on classic cocktails using Talisker, Haig Club, and Johnnie Walker Gold. A special thank you to The Drift bar for hosting such a insightful evening.
Let me know how you will celebrate Burns Night this year and what are some of your favourite types of Scotch whisky?
Thanks for reading darlings.
