“Auchentoshan stands for its artisanal, approachable and alternative take on single malt whisky. This is why we have introduced ‘The New Malt Order’. We want to invite people to explore the diverse taste of single malt whisky in an unconventional way. During the bar takeover, whisky lovers will be able to create bespoke drinks that they enjoy while still amplifying the key flavours of Auchentoshan and delivering the essence of our whisky to patrons” said Sally Lim, Marketing Manager, Beam Suntory South East Asia.
The guests are given a gorgeous goodie bag, and are ushered to the bar to try their signature cocktail. At this point, you were NOT allowed to have the whiskies neat, hahaha, although some of us did sneakily try. Pop up stalls and stations were set up, for guests to try their hand at mixing their own cocktails later on in the evening.
We had the privilege of sampling the three wood, the 12 years and the 18 years. All of which were splendid casks, but the three wood with the foie gras...ah, paradise on earth.
So then it was time for the highlight of the evening, mixing your own cocktails.
The New Malt Order presents a bold pop-up Taste Experiment Bar, allowing patrons an exciting way to customize how they experience the signature flavours of Auchentoshan - smooth and gutsy, approachable yet complex and secure enough to be enjoyed on the rocks or mixed into a cocktail.
I opted for the spicy one,
My little creation.... As I said, I love those enamel mugs. Verdict, well, I think I still prefer my single malts untainted with other flavours.
I look forward to seeing more Auchentoshan in bars around town. I'm sure it's here to stay.
