We are very interested in finding out about lesser known whiskies and smaller, niche brands producing small quantities of specialist Scotch. The Telegraph reported last year that "Whisky is now officially cool" and quoted Talisker, the only single malt from the Isle of Skye, as one of those helping to drive its popularity. The rise of the Whisky cocktail is also contributing and we like this one which also includes that famous Scottish beverage Irn-Bru:

Ingredients:

  • 50ml Talisker 10 Year Old
  • 15ml Irn-Bru cordial infused with black pepper, grapefruit zest and vanilla
  • 5ml Luxardo Maraschino

Method:

  1. Combine ingredients, stir and strain into a Nick and Nora glass (rather lovely cocktail glass in case you haven't previously met Nick & Nora).
  2. Garnish with Irn-Bru tablet.
Mmmmmmm ....sorry I'm off home now to make myself one!
