This summer, Glenmorangie celebrates the ultimate whisky cocktail by launching Old Fashioned Week from 13-19 June.

Showcasing Glenmorangie’s Extra Matured Range of whiskies – Old Fashioned Week features some of the UK’s leading bars, where mixologists will showcase their bespoke serves on their menus during the week.

Drinks expert and writer Laura Foster has prepared a cocktail lover’s video diary for Old Fashioned Week, in which she shares the most exciting cocktails at the UK’s leading bars.

From 13 June, go to glenmorangie.com to follow Laura’s Old Fashioned bar tour – and learn how to recreate them at home.

Glenmorangie and Scott’s present the Old Tom Morris cocktail for Old Fashioned Week, with drinks writer Laura Foster and bar manager David Howie at Scotts, Troon

Laura Foster says: “Up in Troon, where the 145th Open will be staged, we visited Scotts, a smart restaurant overlooking the yacht harbour.

Here, David Howie stirred an Old Fashioned twist that would make a perfect after-dinner drink: Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban was mixed with pineapple and orange sugar syrup, PX sherry and Angostura bitters, all while he explained that the drink is named after Old Tom Morris, who won The Open in 1864, the first year that prize money was on offer. His winnings? A princely £6.
