Join Glenmorangie at their Spice & Rye bar and experience a return to the heyday of rye whiskey.
Open for a limited time only, guests are invited to pre-book early to reserve their space in the bar.
Glenmorangie is opening the Spice & Rye bar in celebration of the brand's latest Private Edition release, Spìos - a unique single malt scotch aged entirely in American ex-rye whiskey casks.
Showcasing how one of Scotland's most popular single malts works in harmony with one of America's most fashionable dark spirits, the bar is styled like a 1920's American Speakeasy, reminiscent of the golden age of American whiskey. The unassuming street level entrance invites guests into an apothecary-style spice shop, through a secret hidden bar entrance and into a speakeasy cocktail bar where they can expect to be entertained by storytellers and a swinging 1920's jazz band.
At the bar itself guests can enjoy whisky cocktails inspired by the era such as the High & Rye with Glenmorangie The Original, ginger, pineapple and rye beer, or the Bloodstone, a riff on the classic Blood & Sand, with coffee infused Glenmorangie The Quinta Ruban, Rubino and Cocchi Torino.
Whisky tasting flights and drams are also available and include a wide range of Glenmorangie expressions including Private Editions such as Nectar D'Or, Lasanta and of course, the new Glenmorangie Spìos.
Spice & Rye will be located at 14 Percy Street, Fitzrovia, London, W1T 1DR. Open from 20th to 24th March pre-booking is strongly advised. Guests can book here. Tickets are just £10, and include a cocktail or dram of Spìos.
