It’s a great excuse to mix up a drink and share it with your dad. An elegant scotch cocktail can be difficult to achieve, thanks to the bold character of the liquor itself. The ’Apes and Apples’ recipe demands balance and is the perfect upscale cocktail for the whisky-loving dad. A healthy whack of smooth sweetness hits first but rapidly dries on the palate to reveal some concentrated bitters. A fair amount of scotchy notes follow, together with a much more subtle hint of minty sparkling apples which offer an enjoyable, almost chewy mid-palate. Just as you think it is going to fade into obscurity, a surprisingly medicinal finish creeps in to surprise but not offend. You can't go wrong this Father’s Day with dad's favourite spirit and mixing up our Apes and Apples cocktail blend.
