Scotland’s world-champion curling team has swept into action to launch two new outdoor cocktail bar experiences in the heart of Edinburgh for spring and summer.

Team Mouat has joined forces with the country’s only Scotch malt whisky cream liqueur, Magnum, to unveil the new venture at the iconic Cold Town House in the Grassmarket.

Created especially for the spring and summer social scene, the ‘Magnum Summer Terrace’ on the rooftop of Cold Town House and on the Grassmarket will offer people the chance to drink in some of the best views of Edinburgh Castle.

Typically seen as a festive drink to enjoy at Christmas time, Magnum has teamed up with the mixologists at Cold Town House to create an exclusive choice of three new iced cocktails made with Magnum to help keep people keep cool outdoors, including the Banana Colada, Choc N’ Chip and Strawberries N’ Cream.

A new summer-inspired Magnum Shooter Board and an individual selection of Magnum flavoured shots are also up for grabs, including a fruity Peaches N’ Cream, Banana Split, Strawberry Shortcake and Chocolate Mudslide, as well as a Magnum Baby Guinness.

Magnum is contained in a unique, stainless steel flask, which is designed to be reusable and recyclable. It also keeps the liqueur chilled at the optimum temperature, which means it can also be enjoyed as a straight serve outdoors without the need for ice.

Since winning the World Curling Championships in 2023 and the Europeans in 2024, Team Mouat have been the official brand ambassadors for Magnum. Led by Edinburgh-born skipper, Bruce Mouat, the team of four men also took home the silver medal at the 2022 Olympics in Beijing.
