Glenmorangie releases a new single malt Scotch whisky specially made for mixing. Crafted in consultation with top global bartenders, X by Glenmorangie’s sweeter, the richer taste is perfect for tall, simple serves, which promise to refresh the way single malt whisky is enjoyed.
An immersive launch event took place at Delhi’s renowned high energy bar, Bohca, and was attended by the swish set of the city. The evening commenced with an interactive whisky tasting session with Moet Hennessy India’s brand ambassador Shehan Minocher. Spotted at the soiree were designers Kanika Goyal and Dhruv Kapoor, fashion stylists Ayesha Nigam, Smridhi Sibal and Medha Bahuguna and entrepreneurs Vivek and Neha Ramabhadran, to name a few.
Glenmorangie’s whisky creators are endlessly imaginative in their quest to dream up delicious whiskies. And, make their more delicate, fruity spirit in Scotland’s tallest stills, and age it in the world’s finest casks. In pursuit of new flavour combinations, Glenmorangie has crafted the perfect single malt whisky for mixing.
To achieve the whisky’s wondrous cascade of taste, the creators drew from the brand’s epic array of casks. Hence, bringing to life a freewheeling single malt, with swirling aromas of pear and vanilla setting the stage for rich orange sherbet and fudge. This versatile single malt offers a rich taste that not only complements but also 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 that are easy to prepare even at home (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). X by Glenmorangie is wonderfully mixed with any flavour you choose.
Dr Bill Lumsden, Director of Whisky Creation, The Glenmorangie Company said, “X by Glenmorangie came from our dream of creating even more flavour possibilities, with a single malt that’s made to mix.
