COCKTAIL RECIPE: THE LIGHTHOUSE BY SKERRYVORE
All GlenAllachie fans will know our name derives from the Gaelic ‘Gleann Ailechaidh’ meaning ‘valley of the rocks’ and so, who better to collaborate with than award-winning Scottish band Skerryvore, a name derived from the Gaelic words ‘Sgeir’ meaning the rock and ‘mhor’ meaning big.
Our Scottish connection runs deep, with Skerryvore representing the very best in contemporary Scottish traditional music showcasing a mix of fiddle, accordions, pipes and whistles, alongside guitar and vocals, underpinned by driving bass, drums and keys. There is no better accompaniment to our acclaimed Speyside Single Malts!
With the height of Summer fast approaching, our friends at Skerryvore were inspired to create a refreshing yet delicious drink fit for any cocktail lover using our sweet yet complex expression.
