The Huxley & Johnnie Walker Celebrate World Whisky Day

Celebrate World Whisky Day at The Huxley

A new Johnnie Walker Terrace Garden with views towards Edinburgh Castle will be launching at The Huxley on Edinburgh’s Rutland Street just in time for one of the biggest celebrations of Scotland’s national drink on World Whisky Day.

The new Johnnie Walker whisky cocktail menu at The Huxley has been designed especially for the summer months in mind, with lighter, fresher ingredients and tropical flavours, including ‘New York to the ‘Burgh’, ‘Whisky Smash’ and ‘Walk Into Summer’.

Created by The Huxley’s The Head Bartender, Grant Lazenby, ‘Grocer’s Punch’ cocktail is made with Johnnie Walker Black Label blended Scotch whisky, pineapple juice, lime juice and served on the rocks with a pineapple crisp garnish.

General Manager of The Huxley and The Rutland Hotel, Mike Lewis, said:

“We’re delighted to team up with a brand as special as Johnnie Walker. Having worked together to open our amazing outside drinking and dining space at The Huxley called the ‘Johnnie Walker Terrace Garden’, we’ve developed an accessible and delicious range of Johnnie Walker cocktails to compliment the Scottish summer.

“We’re so excited to welcome the Johnnie Walker experience to the West End of the city making the most of such an iconic building right across the street from our hotel and bar.”
