Glen Moray has worked with Neil Ridley and Joel Harrison, from World’s Best Spirits, to shift the perception of Single Malt to make Old Fashioned Week 2019 even more adventurous this year. Keep reading to find out how to make a new version of this cocktail and WIN a kit to make your own.
Using the whiskies from the Glen Moray Elgin Classic Collection and the recently released Glen Moray Fired Oak 10-Year-Old Single Malt, Neil and Joel have created five new innovative twists on the classic Old Fashioned Cocktail recipe, here is the first one Glen Moray Sherry Cask Finish Marmalade Old Fashioned.
Neil Ridley and Joel Harrison of World’s Best Spirits say: “We are firm believers that Scotch, especially single malt, should be explored in as many diverse serves as possible and the Old Fashioned is a wonderfully flavoursome vehicle to experience the huge variety of flavours on offer: from lighter, fruity and vanilla notes, through to big, rich, bold and spicy ones. The Glen Moray range works really well to illustrate this.”
Another key ingredient to an Old Fashioned is bitters, so to further enhance and elevate an Old Fashioned, or any other whisky cocktail, the Glen Moray team has created their own unique Glen Moray Bitters. The aromas and flavours of the Glen Moray Bitters are from the maceration and distillation of rosemary and pepper with natural quinquina, dry gentian, absinthe, angelica and whisky. Although Glen Moray Bitters cannot currently be purchased, they are available to bartenders and will be showcased at masterclasses and consumer shows around the world.
