Double Black mixes up a ‘smokin’ ‘Old Fashioned’
Johnnie Walker ‘Double Black’ blended Scotch Whisky was launched onto the Australian market with an exclusive event at Sydney’s Bellevue Hotel ‘Upstairs’ venue where we were treated to the new tipple in many forms.
‘Old Fashioned’ and ‘Whisky Sour’ cocktails lined the main bar of the smartly re-furbished ‘Upstairs’ venue with it’s inside outside space. As the sun sank spirits rose as guests settled comfortably in to ‘degustate’ on the Double Black and canapés.
Les Hill and his mates Josh Whiteman and Bob Mackintosh were amongst the first to enter into the atmospheric ‘tasting rooms’ to sample the intricacies of the new Double Black Scotch Whisky blend. In these cosy anti rooms Luke Reddington was conducting taste journeys from Johnnie Walker ‘Black’ to the smokey flavoured ‘Double Black’.
Meanwhile back in the main bar the ‘Double Black’ cocktails were continuing the rounds (now added to by a straight drop over crushed ice) as guests continued to enjoy the drinks along with the delicious ‘matched’ canapés. This was one of those nice comfortable events where no-one was in any rush to leave. Well done.
