The Singleton Drops a 12 Year Old Single Malt Perfect for Crafty Cocktails


Coming to you straight from Scotland’s Dufftown Distillery, The Singleton 12-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a great foundation for refreshing, new cocktails ideal for easing into the warmer weather. We’ve even included a few drink suggestions below.

Blasphemy! You say. Whisky should be sipped straight with whisky stones to chill, as ice only dilutes the flavour. That last part may be true, but this is 2020, and we’re progressive—so each to their own. If you like mixing whisky, we say you should go for it. The Singleton 12-Year-Old Single Malt possesses notes of honey, fresh fruit and toffee. It’s a drop that’s designed to be unapologetically enjoyed. So get creative and have some fun.

“When it comes to The Singleton, throw away any preconceptions you have about whiskies,” says Katie Nagar, the National Ambassador for The Singleton. “We talk about The Singleton as a ‘CAN’ whisky, meaning you CAN have it any way you like. There is no rulebook.”

Now, on to those cocktails!

The first one is called ‘The Orchid’, thanks to its heavy dose of sparkling and still apple-based mixers. The second is ‘The Ginger & Fresh’ and comprises whisky, kombucha and ginger ale. Both cocktails make use of the “plus two” measure. It’s an easy-to-remember ratio of 50-50-50. So start with your liquor, The Singleton, then an equal mix of a sparkling mixer, and a still mixer.
