Delicious Whisky Cocktails for Summer
— DELICIOUSLY REFRESHING WHISKY COCKTAILS FOR SUMMER —
The two Gladstone Axe Whiskies are a modern twist on classic Scotch and were created with the aim to demystify Scotch and encourage a broader audience to try whisky in cocktails and as a mixed drink, perfect for Summer drinking.
The whiskies were created in honour of William Gladstone, four-times Prime Minister during the reign of Queen Victoria. In 1860 he signed the Spirts Act which allowed the blending of Scotch Whisky for the first time, essentially creating the Scotch Whisky industry as we know it today. An exceptionally smooth blend of single malt Scotch whiskies from Scotland’s finest single malt distilleries, matured in American Oak Bourbon barrels. The whiskies are made from 100% malted barley and are from 14 different Highland and Islay single malt distilleries.
