Whisky fans take note - another popular 2015 pop-up is making a return to Soho as Glenmorangie returns with Beyond the Cask.
This year - as the title promises - it's all about the wood and casks that are used in the whisky making process. So there will be a range of “cask inspired” cocktails influenced by the whisky making and ageing process. They include:
- Smoke & Mirrors - £10: Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban, Wood smoked Hojisha tea, Blackberry & raspberry shrub, finished with a touch of Antica Formula sweet vermouth
- Sweet Sixteen - £10: Glenmorangie Lasanta produced by the 16 men of Tain, Hazelnut infused dry vermouth, Honey & pear eau de vie, Campari, Chamomile bitters aged in a barrel for 16 weeks
There will also be whisky flights from their Extra Matured Range – three whiskies each finished in different types of European Oak and more tastings of whiskies aged 10 for years and upwards. All this in a wood-finished speakeasy style bar - with the more comfy Library Room lounge bar at the back.
And that's not all - as they're teaming up with Finlay & Co. to launch some sunglasses made from their whisky casks too. You'll be able to get those from their website.
Beyond the Cask runs from 3-12 March at 15 Bateman Street, London W1D 3AQ from 5 to 11.30pm. For more, visit their website.
