Scotch gets a summer twist

SCOTCH has been given a flavour of summer in the new cocktail list at Edinburgh’s Scotch Malt Whisky Society.

• New cocktails have been created.

Bartenders in the Queen Street venue’s Kaleidoscope whisky bar, led by Anthony Delcros, have created a range of summer cocktails designed to reflect the society’s “unique flavour approach to tasting whisky”; drinks include the Concierge Shandy – a mix of spicy and sweet single cask society whisky, lemon juice, sugar syrup, Picon and wheat beer; and the Peat Tea Infusion, which combines the malt with spiced Earl Grey Tea, fresh lemon juice and sugar syrup.

Operations director Jan Damen said: “In Kaleidoscope, the cocktail list will allow fans of our single cask society whiskies the opportunity to enjoy whisky in a unique way, as well as other innovative combinations, using ingredients specifically chosen to enhance the tasting experience.”
