Start broadening your whisky horizons by trying an Auchentoshan whisky cocktail. It’s a great way to experiment and discover new flavour experiences in old favourites. Mix up your drinks with this Bucky cocktail featuring the award-winning Auchentoshan Three Wood Single Malt Scotch whisky. You can quickly make this cocktail to enjoy with friends as it only needs a few ingredients, yet it has a refreshing, smooth whisky taste.
Blackcurrant, brown sugar, orange, plum and raisin notes are found within our Three Wood Single Malt, created through distilling the spirit within American Bourbon, Oloroso Sherry and then Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks. This process leaves us with a rich yet nuanced whisky that’s ideal for adding to your favourite cocktail recipes.
How does whisky get its colour? The spirit is left in the oak wood cask and over time the two interact to create a new flavour and colour in the spirit.
Sometimes in life, the best plan can also be the simplest plan. That means that it’s not always about the most complex ingredients when it comes to whisky cocktails – straight-forward combinations can be just as rewarding when they bring together flavours that naturally complement each other.
The art is in drawing out and accentuating the innate character of the whisky. Here’s how to have some fun with Auchentoshan Three Wood whisky.
