X by Glenmorangie is made for mixing

Glenmorangie has released a new single malt Scotch whisky that’s been specially made for mixing – X by Glenmorangie.

The spirit’s sweeter, richer taste is designed for tall, simple serves, which promise to refresh the way single malt whisky is enjoyed over summer.

The distillers consulted with a range of top global bartenders to craft X by Glenmorangie. It was created from a combination of whisky aged in bourbon casks and some finished in new char oak casks.

To inspire mixing, the distiller has designed a series of refreshingly simple serves – each needing just two to four ingredients and easy to make at home. They include takes on familiar classics, new favourites and swizzle-style drinks for fun-filled occasions (Glenmorangie X Karaoke Party pictured above).

The recipes can be found on and on the single malt’s social channels.

Dr Bill Lumsden, Director of Whisky Creation, said: “X by Glenmorangie came from our dream of creating even more flavour possibilities, with a single malt that’s not afraid to mix. Consulting with top bartenders, we crafted this sweeter, richer single malt for all those enjoying mixing at home.

“Luscious with vanilla and pear, succulent orange and honeysuckle, all drizzled with chocolate fudge, X by Glenmorangie is perfect paired with a favourite mixer. So, whether you’re planning a brunch or a date night or want to experiment with your own flavour combinations, this whisky will bring your drink the x-factor!”

The distiller has also opened the doors this week to its ground-breaking Lighthouse distillery near Tain in the Scottish Highlands. Click here to take a look inside.
