Christmas is but days away, so we have asked a few members of our team what dram they will be enjoying with their loved ones. 🥃 🎄

❄️ Rebecca, one of our Visitor Experience Managers, will be enjoying a spicy and nutty Balvenie DoubleWood 12yo, with a twist, as she is making her own Christmas cocktail. 🍸 Details of Rebecca’s Santa Sazerac pictured below.

❄️ Max, Senior Visitor Assistant, has selected a dram of Glencoe blended malt to celebrate with this year. Max first sampled this whisky after a visitor recommended it to him. The rich spicy notes make this blended malt perfect for Christmas Day. ☃️

❄️ Senior Visitor Assistant, Matilda, will be toasting with a dram of Old Pulteney Port. This is her first Christmas away from home and so the Port cask finished whisky is a nod to her granny who always enjoys a glass of Port on Christmas Day. 🎁

Tell us what whisky you will be enjoying this Christmas? 🎅

We thought we’d share our Butterscotch pudding with Drambuie cream recipe in time for the festive season – perfect if you have any dinner parties coming up, or as an alternative to Christmas pudding and brandy butter! The sweet honey notes in our Drambuie cream are a perfect accompaniment to Butterscotch pudding – a serious indulgence, but one we are sure you can give in to during the festive season. A big thank you to our Amber team of chefs for creating this yummy dessert!
