Pink is in Fashion

Mr Pink was created as the 22nd century Blended Whisky. McPink creates a new generational Scotch Whisky drink within the Scotch Whisky category without adding any artificial flavours.  Creating a sweeter and fruitier spirit to compete against rums and some gins or mixology spirits. McPink  combines rich natural colour from it’s long double maturation in Bourbon/Port Cask with a hint of Rose shining through. This perfect colour also balances with the rich malt content, sweeter grain and fruity sweeter flavour from the Ruby Port. The unchill-filtration releases natural preserved sweetness. An ideal combination for mixology. Few Scotch whiskies are found suitable for mixology, either too expensive when it comes to malts or too light or dry when Blended. Mr Pink has that rich fruity and soft edge that combines perfectly to mixology. I asked a Scottish young talented Mixologist, Calvin, originally from Dundee and working in Glasgow @ Saint Judes, to create a modernist McPink cocktail drink. He incorporated his origins with Dundee Marmalade into the drink which sublimed the whisky and he called it, Pink is in fashion.

Try it at home and drink in moderation with your friends. Slanj.
