We’ve done wine tastings, gin master classes, and even had our fair share of sake pairings. Whisky, on the other hand, has always been a bit of a mystery – sometimes spelt with an e, priced depending on age and malts, big in Japan, Ireland and Scotland and served neat, on the rocks or sour – that’s as far as our knowledge goes.

Glenmorangie is stepping in to give us a much-needed schooling by hosting a pop up bar to take us ‘Beyond The Cask’. Doing away with the old boys’ club clichés, The Glenmorangie Bar is inviting both malt whisky aficionados and novices to try a range of ‘cask inspired’ cocktails and exclusive whiskies, including Pride 1978 and Glenmorangie 1963 (the only place in the world to taste it by the dram – 1 dram is approximately 1/13 of a pint) – in a low-key fun environment. It is a bar after all – a bar we like the sound of.

Divided into three rooms, the first is a sultry wood-finished speakeasy serving cocktails such as the Smoke & Mirrors (Glenmorangie Quinta Ruba, Hojicha tea, blackberry and raspberry shrubs and sweet vermouth) and Sweet Sixteen (Glenmorangie Lasanta, hazelnut infused dry vermouth and honey and pear eau de vie). The second room is The Library, a spot to settle into and enjoy your drams and cocktails. And, for those who want to explore further, carry through to The Vault – where unique experiences such as cheese and chocolate pairings, and rare whisky tastings or whisky flights (a UJ fave) of different ages are available.

There’s more to it than just a sour.

The Glenmorangie Bar, 15 Bateman Street, W1D 3AQ.
3rd -13th March (closed on Sunday, 6th March) from 5 to 11.30pm.
Entrance is free, and cocktails and experiences are independently priced.
