A Ginger Lemon Old Fashioned
This #AGingerLemon serve is an anagram of our name and our take on the Old Fashioned. It combines smooth notes of sweet ginger, silky Vermouth and our melt-in-your-mouth Lasanta for the ultimate cocktail with a twist.
Lemon twist, to garnish
- The Lasanta
45ml (1 1/2oz) Glenmorangie Lasanta
7.5ml (1/4oz) sweet vermouth
5ml (1/6oz) gingerbread syrup
2 dashes burlesque bitters
1 dash lemon bitters
Pour everything into a mixing glass, add ice cubes and stir for a few moments. Strain into a chilled rocks glass, over more ice cubes, then set off the rich swirl of flavours with a spiralling lemon twist.
Our rich, sweet storm of flavour.
In every corner of the world, the setting of the sun is magical, mused Dr Bill, our Director of Whisky Creation and an inveterate traveler. This whisky is Dr Bill’s attempt to bottle the magic of sunset, with its endless horizon of reds, oranges and purples.
Lasanta begins with our giraffe-high stills, which yield a deliciously delicate and fruity spirit. Next, we mature it in bourbon and sherry casks for 12 years, transforming it into a mouth-watering odyssey bursting with rich spiciness and sun-drenched sweetness. It radiates with raisins, honeycomb and chocolate-covered hazelnuts lightened by cinnamon breezes. Each time you watch the sunset, you see something different – this is how it is to drink Lasanta.
