Glenmorangie describes its new 13-year-old single malt Scotch whisky as bursting with fruit and honey, cocoa dust and spice. The bottle’s label, meanwhile, evokes cheery Christmas jumpers.

Inspired by this whisky, Glenmorangie has created a series of hot and cold wintry drinks, easy to make at home, including a Winter Old Fashioned made with this limited edition (recipe below).

Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s director of whisky creation, said: “We all know the delight of snuggling up in a winter jumper by the fire, when it’s snowy outside. … The experience [of this whisky] begins with light flurries of fruit and honey, building to torrents of cocoa dust, flakes of red pepper and chunks of Brazil-nut toffee. It culminates in a feels-like-forever finish that swirls with cinnamon, ginger and clove.”

Glenmorangie A Tale of Winter (46% ABV, non-chill-filtered) is available from specialist whisky retailers and for an RRP of £75.
