Vintage Perfection Cocktails: aged cocktails with The Glenrothes

George Restrepo

We are very proud to be part of this project not only because it is a pioneer initiative in Spain but also because it is something new and unprecedented for us. Moreover, being part of this amazing group, "the best bartenders in Madrid and Barcelona" according to the brand, is an opportunity that we will use the most. Actually, we will open a section call "Aged cocktail blog” in which we will share the process of "Killing Hours", our cocktail for this project.

The initiative
Vintage Perfection Cocktails
 is the project promoted by The Glenrothes that involves making a cocktail with this single malt using a traditional technique: it must remain in the barrel for at least two weeks before consuming. "The 11 most relevant bartenders of Madrid and Barcelona are working on a personal version of their cocktails that, for the first time in Spain, will continue a process of maturation in barrel," affirms the brand. A small barrel of 6 liters was sent to each participant by the brand.

The chosen ones
The cocktail specialists chosen have been working on the project and they already have an initial version of it. In late March they will travel to Scotland to The Glenrothes distillery, to show the results to Ronnie Cox, International Brand Ambassador of The Glenrothes and Jared Brown, one of the leading specialists in cocktails and spirits worldwide.

Last Monday 12/3 a meeting was held in Barcelona to share the status of the investigations and the maturation process of each one. In addition, at night, we shared a dinner - food pairing included- with some media and the international Brand Ambassador, Ronnie Cox. The Brand Ambassador in Spain, Carolina Gomez, was also there and she presented her own Vintage Perfection Cocktail creation, which is ready for consumption: Burlesque. "The interesting thing is that we can share knowledge among all and create new ways of consumption that are more careful and selective for an audience increasingly demanding and educated," Carolina Gomez said.

When all the bartenders have perfected their formulas, there will be a formal presentation where, in addition to testing the creations, the book Vintage Perfection will be launched, with all the research process involved in this challenge.
