A new single malt has hit our shores, Mortlach, with the official launch party taking place at a cool spot called the Glasshouse.
Mortlach was the first distillery to be built at Dufftown, Scotland, in 1823, producing high-quality, luxurious malt that is unrivalled in flavor, earning its recognition as ‘The Beast of Dufftown’ from whisky connoisseurs.
Guests refuelled at the bar that was cookin up three types of whisky cocktails, that had the Mortlach Rare Old as the base. Each of the three mixologists served up a cocktail each.
The three new expressions are aimed at global travel and the luxury connoisseurs: Rare Old, 18-Year-Old and 25-Year-Old, which were awarded the best malts in its category at the recent International Spirits Award 2015.
The Rare Old Mortlach, carries Mortlach’s signature balance of sweetness and dryness, infused with the whisky’s fruit and flora notes; while the 18-Year-Old Mortlach sees an interplay of malty sweetness and balancing acidity, which is best enjoyed straight.
The 25-Year-Old Mortlach on the other hand, is a complex mix of spices and dense layers of sweetness, with some liquorice coming thru. Surprisingly light and easy on the palate. All bottles are 500ml.
Guests gained a premier Mortlach experience at an excellent and impressive venue. The Glasshouse lies by lots of greenery, and the rooftop is really cool too.
