Glenrothes Distillery - Share a Chevelier Sangaree this Summer- 10th June, 2010Latest Whisky News - Glenrothes Distillery - Share a Chevelier Sangaree this Summer- 10th June, 2010

With summer on the horizon, long sunny days and lingering dusky nights, it is the perfect time to open the drinks cabinet and shake up a refreshing cocktail to share with friends. The Chevelier Sangaree, inspired by Dean Evans of Blythwood Square Hotel, Glasgow - at The Glenrothes Ultimate Gentleman’s Cocktail Competition – is a long refreshing tipple combining the fruity notes of The Glenrothes with the warmth of an almond finish.

To make the Chevelier Sangaree take a Toddy glass and cool down with ice while you are preparing the rest of the ingredients. Pour 35ml The Glenrothes Select Reserve, 5ml Luxardo amaretto liqueur, 5ml Crème de poire, 5ml Cinzano Bianco and 5ml Simple Syrup (1 sugar to 1 water) into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake all of the ingredients. Strain the ingredients into the glass filled with ice and then garnish with a mint sprig and grated nutmeg.

The Glenrothes Select Reserve is a versatile yet unique malt laced with notes of ripe fruits, juicy citrus, creamy vanilla and hints of spice - making it the perfect liquid to partner with cocktails.

A vatting of casks distilled in different years, The Glenrothes Select Reserve typifies the Speyside distillery house style. It is presented in the iconic Glenrothes bottle and is the very essence of The Glenrothes range. RRP £33.45, available at Sainsbury’s, Oddbins, House of Fraser, Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Wine Rack, specialist whisky retailers or online at
