Celebrate International Scotch Day: Aberfeldy’s Scotch cocktail recipe

Aberfeldy scotch whiskey cocktail drink

Scotch is great. And a day to celebrate it’s great, too. So we partnered with Aberfeldy Distillery, nestled within a lush valley in the foothills of the Central West Highlands of Scotland.

Their 12 year-old single malt whiskey is scented with spices and honeyed plum fruits. Syrupy with lots of vanilla and fudge, with a whisper of smoke on the finish, it’s a quality batch that might just make your Scotch Day celebrations worthwhile on 8 February 2022.

How to make the Aberfeldy Scotch cocktail

To make, simply add the honey syrup, bitters and Aberfeldy 12 to a mixing glass, then add ice and stir to dilute (around 30 seconds). Pour into a rocks glass, then add block ice. Cut and curl an orange twist, expressing the zesty oils over the drink, then discard.
