A “made to mix” whisky from Glenmorangie

Glenmorangie X Date Night

X by Glenmorangie inspires delicious mixed drinks

Glenmorangie has released new single malt Scotch whisky specially made for mixing.  This is a luscious whisky with a variety of flavours, from pear, vanilla and honeysuckle to orange sherbet and chocolate fudge. Created from a combination of whisky aged in bourbon casks, and some finished in new char oak casks, its sweet and rich taste

X by GlenmorangieTo inspire mixing, Glenmorangie has designed a series of refreshingly simple serves – each needing just 2-4 ingredients and easy to make at home using X by Glenmorangie.  They include takes on familiar classics (Glenmorangie X Tonic, Glenmorangie X Cola) and swizzle-style drinks for fun-filled occasions, (Glenmorangie X Brunch, Glenmorangie X Date Night, Glenmorangie X Karaoke Party and more). The recipes can be found on www.glenmorangie.com

Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s Director of Whisky Creation, said: “X by Glenmorangie came from our dream of creating even more flavour possibilities, with a single malt that’s made to mix. Consulting with top bartenders, we crafted this sweeter, richer single malt for all those enjoying mixing at home.

“Luscious with vanilla and pear, succulent orange and honeysuckle, all drizzled with chocolate fudge, X by Glenmorangie is perfect paired with a favourite mixer. So, whether you’re planning a brunch or a date night or want to experiment with your own flavour combinations, this whisky will bring your drink the x-factor!”
