Crafted with top bartenders, X by Glenmorangie inspires delicious mixed drinks
Glenmorangie today releases a new single malt Scotch whisky specially made for mixing. Crafted with top bartenders, X by Glenmorangie’s sweeter, richer tasteis perfect for tall, simple serves, which promise to refresh the way single malt whisky is enjoyed.
Glenmorangie’s whisky creators are endlessly imaginative in their quest to dream up delicious whiskies. They make their more delicate, fruity spirit in Scotland’s tallest stills, and age it in the world’s finest casks. Inspired by the flavour possibilities their whisky can bring when mixed, they consulted with a range of top global bartenders, to craft X by Glenmorangie.
This luscious whisky is an extravaganza of flavours, from pear, vanilla and honeysuckle to orange sherbet and chocolate fudge. Expertly created from a combination of whisky aged in bourbon casks, and some finished in new char oak casks, its sweet and rich taste both complements and cuts through all manner of mixers, for delicious drinks.
To 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 and on the single malt’s social channels.
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!”
About X by Glenmorangie serves: Designed to complement all kinds of occasions, and to inspire people to experiment with their favourite mixers and garnishes at home, these serves are easy to make, using only 2-4 ingredients. Most are served tall, over crushed ice in the style of a ‘swizzle’ drink. And there is no need for specialist equipment: they can be mixed as easily with a butter knife as with a bar spoon. Three serves (Glenmorangie X Tonic, Glenmorangie X Sangria & Glenmorangie X Peach), will be showcased on a neck tag accompanying the bottle. More serves will be revealed when drinkers scan a QR code and can also be found at www.glenmorangie.com. Their recipes can be found in the accompanying document.
