Glenmorangie launches whisky designed for mixing

Glenmorangie has unveiled its latest whisky: a single malt Scotch specifically designed for mixing.

X by Glenmorangie has been created in collaboration with bartenders to ensure a spirit that will stand up to mixing. The resulting spirit - a sweeter, richer version of the Speyside distillery's classic whiskies - has been made specifically with longer, simple serves in mind. 

The new whisky has been aged in ex-Bourbon casks and finished in new char oak casks. Glenmorangie says the whisky has notes of pear, vanilla and honeysuckle to the sweeter orange sherbet and chocolate fudge. 

To coincide with the launch of X by Glenmorangie, the distillery has designed a series of simple serves - each requiring two to four ingredients - to encourage mixing at home with its new expression. The recipes can be found at and on its social media channels.

Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s director of whisky creation, said: "X by Glenmorangie came from our dream of creating even more flavour possibilities, with a single malt that is made to mix. Consulting with top bartenders, we crafted this sweeter, richer single malt for all those enjoying mixing at home.

"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!"

X by Glenmorangie will be available exclusively with from 21 April, and from Amazon and specialist whisky retailers from 1 May (RRP £30).
