Taking place alongside Burns Night (25th January), this year, Scotch Whisky Weekend is a new mini festival from DrinkUp.London in partnership with Scotchwhisky.com.
Moreover, a number of London bars will also celebrate Scotch Whisky Weekend, with four days of cocktail tours championing £6 cocktails for Festival Pass holders. For the event, Shoreditch bar Callooh Callay has collaborated with Monkey Shoulder on a limited-edition whisky cocktail – the ‘Super Freak’ – available throughout January, served in a miniature disco ball.
Speaking on the cocktail, Nazareth Rodriguez, Callooh Callay Bartender, said: “[The ‘Super Freak’ is] a tropical and fruity drink with a strong scotch smokiness that follows through, from start to finish.”
