With Burns suppers taking place across the globe, our Brand Ambassador Ibon Mendigueren. , puts his spin on a classic whisky cocktail.
“Although a dram of neat whisky is a treat for a lot of people, not everyone enjoys just whisky alone. The range of Loch Lomond Whiskies have an incredible variety of flavour profiles make them perfect for creating exciting cocktails.
This recipe is a twist on the classic Old Fashioned cocktail that uses bitters to draw out the fruity notes from Loch Lomond Original. The oaky finish with a subtle hint of peat and fruity flavours is a beautiful companion for the spice of haggis.”
