Celebrate Burns Night with Glen Moray
What better way to celebrate this historic event than with a whisky that encapsulates the smokiness of winter evenings. Glen Moray Elgin Classic Peated Single Malt Whisky is matured in ex-bourbon casks for added spiciness and is an intense and subtly-smoked expression.
Raise a glass to Robert Burns with the excellent Glen Moray Peated Old Fashioned Cocktail, created by Neil Ridley and Joel Harrison from World’s Best Spirits:
50ml Glen Moray Elgin Classic Peated Single Malt Whisky, 12ml Maple Syrup, three dashes Bitter Truth Creole Bitters (or Peychaud’s Bitters), one dash Ginger Bitters and ½ teaspoon cherry juice.
In a mixing glass, add half the whisky, maple syrup, cherry juice and bitters. Fill with cubed ice and stir. Add the rest of the whisky, and keep stirring, adding more ice until the drink is diluted to taste. Strain into a chilled rocks glass over a large single cube of ice and garnish with a thin piece of orange zest, expressed over the glass and three cherries. Optional garnish of a couple of squares of dark chocolate.
Glen Moray Classic Peated Single Malt Whisky is available from: Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Tesco, Amazon, masterofmalt.com and thewhiskyexchange.com
RRP: £25 for 70cl. ABV: 40%
