Glenmorangie, one of the tastiest Scottish Highland single malts money can buy, is offering the chance to try their masterfully created whisky in a new and exciting experience. Aptly titled Glenmorangie After Hours, the Scotch whisky house want you to enjoy their celebrated spirit in a way that encapsulates the notion of time spent after hours, however you like to spend it, in the luxurious settings of premium designer hotel QT Sydney.
As one of the most easy drinking whiskies on the market, Glenmorangie Original has long been a stalwart for sippers who prefer a mild, balanced single malt over heavier, peated flavours. With food from the acclaimed Gowings Bar & Grill matched to Glenmorangie Original for the first part of the masterclass, guests will enjoy learning more about their favourite drop, before getting the opportunity to heat, strain and bottle their own personalised concoction of the Original 10 Year Old, which is the backbone of the Glenmorangie range.
After the first whisky, participants will move on to a deconstructed tasting of Glenmorangie’s coveted Signet expression. Guests are handed a set of headphones as part of the Sonic & Sweets half of the evening – music is paired with a curated menu of desserts to complement the rich, bold, sweet notes of the Signet – the oldest whisky in the entire Glenmorangie range.
While the Original 10 Year Old has propped the brand up for a long time, it’s the rarer expressions from their Private Edition range that has turned heads and won critical acclaim in the past decade. The brainchild of Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s Director of Distilling, Whisky Creation and Whisky Stocks, the Private Edition series has seen a seriously wide range of innovative concepts come out of the iconic distillery, and the brand’s sales more than double in the process. Dr. Bill cites Signet as his proudest to date, however, for its bold pushing of boundaries – we concur, it’s ridiculously good whisky.
Sessions are still available for Glenmorangie After Hours on Wednesday the 28th and Thursday the 29th of June for only $25, but tickets are selling fast, so get in quickly.
