A spirited soiree at The Leela Mumbai saw the launch of two iconic brands from the same distillery tucked away in the islands of Scotland. The single malt Bruichladdich Classic; an unpeated outlier from the land and the Botanist a dry gin flavoured with 22 botanicals were launched by famed Mixologist Yangdup Lama in the presence of whisky lovers and specialists from the beverages industry.
Bruichladdich the outlier also shows its wild side with the Octomore ,a 160 ppm peat monster but is yet to launch in the country. The non-chill filtered malt was best enjoyed with a few drops of water and went well with the range of appetizers showcased by the hotel. The evening started with G&T's and sushis and ended with old-fashioned, drams of the laddie and chocolates.
The Bruichladdich and the Botanist are imported and distributed by Sula Selections the import arm of Sula are now available in Maharashtra
