Glenmorangie toasts to the ultimate whisky cocktail in Leeds and across the UK for Old Fashioned Week: June 13-19
Love whisky? Then chances are, the Old Fashioned is your cocktail of choice.
This summer, Glenmorangie is celebrating the ultimate whisky cocktail by launching Old Fashioned Week from June 13-19.
Old Fashioned Week will be celebrated by a number of bars across the UK including Crafthouse at Angelica (fifth floor of the Trinity Leeds shopping centre - restaurant review here) for the week in June, showcasing Glenmorangie’s acclaimed Extra Matured Range of whiskies. Each whisky in the range has been aged for 10 years in ex-bourbon casks, then ‘finished’ in different wine casks, giving each dram a totally unique flavour and aroma:
Lasanta: finished in sherry casks
Quinta Ruban: finished in Port casks
Nectar D’Or*: finished in Sauternes wine casks
Some of the UK’s leading bars will be showcasing their bespoke serves for whisky lovers on their menus during the week – inviting you to explore the whisky styles and flavours, mixed with their own unique, fresh ingredients. At Crafthouse you can experience the ‘Twist on an Old Fashioned’ cocktail with Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban.
Drinks expert and writer Laura Foster has compiled a cocktail lover’s dream – a video diary for Old Fashioned Week to share her tour of some of the bars with the most exciting serves. From 13th June, go to www.Glenmorangie.com to see Laura’s bar tour - where you can go to enjoy some of these bespoke cocktails and how to recreate them at home if you fancy trying your hand at mixology!
