Latest Whisky News - Curl up this winter with a warming ‘Song of Fire’ - The Glenrothes Ultimate Gentleman’s Cocktail Competition - 24th September, 2010

With winter looming and frosty nights approaching, there is no better time to stay indoors with your nearest and dearest, open the drinks cabinet and mix a warming cocktail.

‘Song of Fire’, inspired by bartender Jon Hughes of Sygn, Edinburgh - at The Glenrothes Ultimate Gentleman’s Cocktail Competition - is a sweet and spicy cocktail, combining the fruity notes of The Glenrothes with zesty orange, honey and a touch of cinnamon spice.  A genuine winter warmer.

To make the ‘Song of Fire’, stir 50ml of The Glenrothes Select Reserve with honey and hot water in a mixing glass until the honey dissolves.  Then take a snifter glass and place the cinnamon stick and orange zest in the base of brandy glass with the Chartreuse and ignite the alcohol in the glass to extract the flavours. Then pour the honeyed whisky mix into the glass to extinguish the flame. Finish of the cocktail by garnishing the glass with a cinnamon stick and an orange zest twist.

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 www.theglenrothes.com.
