Glenmorangie, the tasty tipple from Tain, is a household name in the wide world of whisky, and the elusive liquid already has many fans of its various expressions. Now, the much-lauded distillery is hosting an exclusive pop-up experience in the heart of Melbourne at the end of June, giving serious sippers an up-close and personal experience with their most celebrated and beloved whisky: Signet.
Signet, an innovative dram which was the first in the world to use roasted ‘chocolate’ barley, contains some of the most sought-after and exceptional casks in its make-up and has long been a favoured go-to for connoisseurs wanting something truly special in their glasses. Teaming up with iconic Melbourne diner Vue de Monde, Glenmorangie is hoping to show guests the different sides to this complex whisky over the course of three nights, at a secret warehouse location to be revealed closer to the date.
Displaying rich, complementary flavours of intense espresso, chocolate spices and mandarin, Signet is one of the most complex and pleasant whiskies in existence. Brendan McCarron, head of maturing stock at Glenmorangie’s distillery, will take attendees through the motions of Signet, with paired snacks from Vue de Monde’s award-winning kitchen. Starting in an espresso-infused, candlelit lobby, guests will move through secretive spaces which promise to unfold throughout the night, revealing theatrical surprises, in the temporary speakeasy set up.
Finally, all will end up in a mandarin grove (playfully dubbed ‘Linger Bar’) enjoying Glenmorangie Signet cocktails from Vue de Monde’s Lui Bar, which will stay open late after the immersive experience for those wanting to kick on.
The event, which runs from the 27th – 29th of June with four available sessions per night will set you back a clean AUD$80, which includes three cocktails, snacks throughout the night and, of course, a dram of Glenmorangie Signet.
