Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

With the start of Spring officially underway, I’m reaching out to share some light and delicious seasonal sips from ABERFELDY Single Malt Scotch Whisky in the hopes that you will consider for any cocktail stories you have in the works.

Whether you prefer to enjoy the Spring weather in a nearby park or in the comfort of your home, ABERFELDY Single Malt Scotch Whisky has an assortment of perfect cocktails featuring fresh flavors for the new season to help celebrate the warmer days ahead. Look to the brand’s Honey Highball, which brings together chilled chamomile tea, ABERFELDY 12 Years Old and local honey to really embrace the unique honeyed sweetness found naturally within the whisky. Alternatively, the signature Macleod Highball cocktail recipe uses soda water, ABERFELDY 12 Years Old and St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur for a drink that leans into its floral notes with hints of elderflower. If craving something a little more citrus-based to welcome Spring, turn to the Honey Sour, which leverages fresh lemon juice, ABERFELDY 12 Years Old and local honey to balance the sweet and citrus notes perfectly. 

No matter where you decide to enjoy the beautiful weather, ABERFELDY’s Honey Highball, Macleod Highball and Honey Sour are sure to dazzle and delight everyone’s taste buds. I’ve included the recipes for each cocktail below as well as a link to hi-res cocktail imagery. Would love to hear if this spring sip might be a fit for any upcoming cocktail coverage! 

Cheers!
