Glenfarclas unveils pre-mixed cocktails
Scotch whisky producer Glenfarclas has partnered with delivery platform The Drinks Drop to create two pre-mixed cocktails to celebrate Burns Night.
The Highland single malt whisky producer is offering two cocktails: Coffee & Cacao Bobby Burns and Strawberry & Balsamic Rob Roy. The drinks have been created to toast Scottish poet Robert Burns on his birthday on 25 January.
The pre-mixed serves are made using the 60% ABV Glenfarclas 105 whisky and come in pouches delivered via The Drinks Drop.
The ‘powerful and invigorating’ Coffee & Cacao Bobby Burns (28% ABV) is a twist on the classic cocktail. The 105ml pouch combines cacao-infused Glenfarclas 105 with Mr Black Coffee Liqueur, chocolate wine, Bénédictine liqueur and chocolate bitters.
Meanwhile, the Strawberry & Balsamic Rob Roy (27% ABV) is said to balance ‘sweet and complex notes’, offering flavours of strawberry, balsamic and orange bitters that complement the spiciness of the whisky. The 98ml serve is made using Glenfarclas 105, Cocchi Rosa, strawberry apéritif, balsamic vinegar and orange bitters.
Before serving the drinks, the pouches are recommended stored in the freezer for 30 minutes and then poured into a chilled glass.
The cocktails are priced at £19.50 (US$26.55) for a box of two pouches and available for delivery across the UK.
In September last year, Bristol-based bartender Dan Jones was named the winner of the second Glenfarclas 105 Cask Strength Cocktail Competition.
