NEW “NAKED MALT” IDENTITY AND PACKAGING REVEALED – Scotch Whisky News

NEW “NAKED MALT” IDENTITY AND PACKAGING REVEALED – Scotch Whisky News

NEW “NAKED MALT” IDENTITY AND PACKAGING REVEALED

Blended malt credentials boosted by fresh identity & packaging, showcasing ‘Naked’ first-fill sherry casks to appeal to a new generation of whisky drinkers

Ultra-premium spirits company, Edrington, is re-presenting its Naked brand with a new identity. Embracing its independent spirit and honouring the liquid by placing a first-fill sherry cask centre stage on the bottle, the brand will also evolve to Naked Malt to reinforce its quality credentials and reflect the blend of some of Scotland’s finest single malts.

The launch of Naked Malt, formerly Naked Grouse, will see no change to the award-winning liquid. However, the brand is revealing a new, contemporary design and 100% recyclable packaging. The bottle – which remains transparent to showcase the liquid – will now be embossed with a stunning “Naked” first-fill sherry cask, a homage to the unique process and the delicious flavour it embodies. Each bottle will also carry a signature from Naked Malt Master Blender, Diane Stuart, to acknowledge the meticulous blending, care & craftsmanship that goes into every specially selected cask.

Comprised of world-renowned single malts, Naked Malt’s exceptional flavour is enhanced when the unique blend is extra-matured in first-fill (or naked) Oloroso sherry casks for at least six months. As they’ve never held whisky before, this imparts the best flavour and cask character to create a distinctive taste that is rich and fruity yet versatile for any preferred serve. The brand wants to inspire a new generation of whisky drinkers to celebrate the freedom to drink whisky their way, and ultimately Live Naked, free from traditional constraints.

Shelter Point Distillery Update – Canadian Whisky News

Shelter Point Distillery Update – Canadian Whisky News

Greetings Shelter Point Community

It’s officially Fawning Season in this neck of the woods, and Shelter Point Farm is teeming with new life, which includes our local Black-Tailed Deer population giving rise to a new generation. We’ve also had our first Black Bear sighting of the season at Shelter Point, always another sign of Spring in full bloom.

On the distillery front: You may have seen a post we put out on social media last week, explaining why you may notice a slightly different bottle design for our Shelter Point Whiskies popping up here and there in the near future. For those who missed it, due to an indefinitely delayed shipment of our classic Shelter Point Whisky bottles, we’ve had to make a temporary switch. These new bottles are quite similar in shape and style, but they don’t fit with our trademark glass stoppers. We’ve switched to wood-topped corks for now (the same as you’ll see on our Gin bottles), and we feel like it’s still a good look. Opinions are always appreciated however, and we’ve received a mountain of feedback on both sides. Whether you like the old style, or appreciate the new look, the consensus amongst everyone is that, “It’s the liquid inside that counts” and we couldn’t agree more!

On the tastings and tour side of things here at the Distillery: We are still closed to the public, however we have increased our volume of Virtual Tastings to accommodate the increased demand. Their are currently 2 different options for Virtual Tastings. The first being a whisky exclusive option which will include five 50ml samples of our award winning whiskies and the second being a spirit tasting which will include five 50ml samples of our spirits, Whisky and Liqueur. Both tastings kits will be delivered to your door and ready to sample along with a group of friends & new acquaintances, and are hosted by members of the Shelter Point team, including Distiller Leon Webb, Distillery Manager Jacob Wiebe, Distillery Spirit Guide Brian Ingle and Distillery Spirit Scribe Pat Dunlop. For more information and for booking, please visit https://shelterpoint.ca/distillery-tour-booking/

Cheers and stay tuned to our newsletter for further updates and announcements regarding events, new releases and more fun goings on here at Shelter Point!

Original Recipe: Wramble

Original Recipe: Wramble

Christopher Null May 20, 2021

When Bombay sent its new Bombay Bramble blackberry and raspberry flavored gin our way (review coming soon!), I promptly set out to figure out a solid cocktail for it. I’ve long been a fan of the sloe gin-based Wibble and figured Bombay Bramble could easily sub in for sloe gin in the recipe, ultimately melding the Bramble and the Wibble to create the Wramble.

I made some other minor tweaks to balance out the tart underbelly with a bit more sweetness. The drink could benefit from continued experimentation, of course — but I know one thing for sure: Don’t leave out the creme de mure.

Wramble
1 oz. Bombay Bramble flavored gin
3/4 oz. gin
1 oz. freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1/4 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 oz. simple syrup
1/8 oz. creme de mure (blackberry liqueur)

Review: 2018 Utopia Vineyards Pinot Noir Blanc “Bliss” Ribbon Ridge AVA

Review: 2018 Utopia Vineyards Pinot Noir Blanc “Bliss” Ribbon Ridge AVA

This just barely pinkish rose of pinot noir from Oregon’s Utopia Vineyards is one of the driest white wines I’ve ever encountered, a deep dive into lemon peel, sesame seed, and white flowers — none of which evoke pinot noir to me (even as a white wine). While a bit green on the finish, a note of guava gives it an exotic lift that decidedly grows on you over time.

A Great Sound System Is the Secret to Your Success

Operators know that a good guest experience extends far beyond the food and beverage offerings. Every element of your venue, from the booking system to the atmosphere and even the tableware, adds up to create the guest experience. And when it comes to creating the perfect atmosphere, few things are more impactful than your music. And we’re not talking playlist – we’re talking the actual sound quality.

We spoke with David Lee of BASSBOSS® to find out why operators need to be focusing on audio as a fundamental building block of your venue, and how a great sound system can significantly boost your bottom line.

Why is it important for venues to have a great sound system?

A sound system can be so much more than just the equipment that plays the music. A phenomenal sound system actually encourages your patrons to stay longer. Powerful, deep bass has been scientifically shown to increase alcohol purchases. In addition to that, the quality of the sound becomes associated with every other part of the venue. People will return over and over again to hear their favorite music sound the best they have ever heard it. 

RELATED: What to Expect at #NCB2021

What are the most common sound system mistakes operators make, and how can they avoid them?

One big mistake is having systems that are too loud in the wrong areas and not loud enough in the right areas. Night clubs are social environments, and people need space in which to socialize away from the intensity of the dance floor. Bartenders also need to be able to hear the customers’ orders and to interact with the customers.

Review: 6 O’Clock Brunel Gin

Review: 6 O’Clock Brunel Gin
6 O'Clock Brunel Gin

Christopher Null May 20, 2021

Robert recently reviewed 6 O’Clock Gin’s London Dry expression — and its canned G&T — but today we’re looking at the Bristol-based operation’s “export strength” expression, dubbed Brunel.

The gin isn’t just a higher-strength version of the London Dry, it’s also got six added botanicals on top of those in the London Dry: green cardamom, nutmeg, cumin, cassia bark, cubeb pepper, and lemon. And yes, it’s bottled at a higher proof.

Let’s give it a try.

Alaska Airlines brings back food, beverage service on some flights: report

Alaska Airlines brings back food, beverage service on some flights: report
Last year, Alaska Airlines stopped serving food and drinks on short flights to limit interactions during the coronavirus pandemic.

Passengers flying Alaska Airlines have a few more food options now. 

The airline reportedly expanded its food and beverage service this week on certain flights, according to The Points Guy. 

The website reported that Alaska Airlines brought back some food options on Thursday, including hot entrees for first class passengers on transcontinental trips.

Organic Food Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Growth And Change To 2030

The Business Research Company’s Organic Food Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Growth And Change To 2030

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, May 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Increasing health concerns due to growing number of chemical poisoning cases globally is acting as a driver in the organic market. Consumers are becoming more health conscious owing to the harmful effects caused by the presence of chemical pesticides in food products. The toxicity of chemical pesticides in food products can cause cancer, hormone disruption and birth defects. According to an UN report, around 200,000 people die every year due to toxic effects of pesticides in food products. This is causing consumers to shift their focus towards organic food products.

The organic food and beverages market consists of sales of organic food and beverages and related services. The production of organic food involves practices that promote ecological balance and aim to conserve biodiversity. These food products do not use any food additive or industrial solvent.

Ireland's Dingle Distillery launches first core whiskey

Ireland's Dingle Distillery launches first core whiskey

Ireland's Dingle Distillery has marked a major milestone with the launch of its first core whiskey expression.

The triple-distilled, non-chill filtered Dingle Single Malt will be available domestically and for key export markets including the UK, Poland, Germany, France, China and the US.

The whiskey comprises predominantly six to seven-year-old spirit that has been matured in Pedro Ximénez sherry (61 per cent) and Bourbon (39 per cent) first-fill casks.

Some 50,000 bottles have been produced so far, with the distillery aiming to produce 100,00 bottles of Dingle Single Malt - and half a million bottles across its whole portfolio - by 2023.

Elliot Hughes, managing director at Dingle Distillery, said: "Quality has always been at the heart of our DNA at Dingle Distillery and that remains the case with our Single Malt launch. We are one of few distilleries in Ireland solely producing our own spirit - we don't buy from or sell to other distilleries.

Kahlúa unveils bottle rebrand

Kahlúa unveils bottle rebrand

Coffee liqueur brand Kahlúa has unveiled its first bottle rebrand in more than a decade.

The new label design is intended to celebrate Kahlúa's coffee credentials and its Mexican roots in Veracruz, a mountainous region which has a rich coffee culture and where coffee beans have been farmed for centuries.

Its distinctive red and yellow colour palette has been retained, with a contemporary Aztec-inspired design that reinvents the classic Kahlúa silhouette.

Tamara Urukalo, global vice-president of marketing at Kahlúa, said: "We at Kahlúa pride ourselves on our unserious attitude and dedication to making an exceptional coffee liqueur that coffee and cocktail fans alike will love.

"But it's not just about the taste, it's also about the look - so we felt that it was only right that we gave our famous bottle a bold and contemporary makeover that borrows cues from the world of coffee and stands out from the crowd.

Bordeaux Is Back: 2020 Futures Prices and Analysis

A year ago it was hard to fathom how Bordeaux wineries would conduct a futures campaign, selling their latest vintage as a global pandemic raged. But they managed to pull it off. Now they have launched the campaign for 2020 futures, and while conditions in many of their leading markets have improved, it is hardly a typical year.

American wine lovers and merchants are curious to see if top châteaus will repeat last year's pause on big price increases. With the global economy so uncertain, most wineries kept price increases fairly small. A strong dollar also helped. Many of the best-known wines sold well.

The economy is still uncertain, but there are signs that the next six months will bring strong economic growth as vaccinations accelerate and restrictions ease. People with money are looking to spend. Will that convince Bordeaux vintners that they can resume the big price increases seen in past years?

And there's a big catch for U.S. buyers: The dollar is weaker against the euro this year, meaning châteaus could release futures at the exact same price, but Americans will pay more. The bright side? The government has paused tariffs on French wines, removing a big extra cost.

Cheval-Blanc made a splash last week, kicking off the campaign. Typically one of the last estates to release futures, it was the first big name to hit the market. The 2020 was released at €380 per bottle, ex-négociant, up 2.7 percent on the 2019. It’s being offered by top U.S. retailers at an average price of $575, or $6,900 per case, an increase of 16 percent on the 2019. While it's not cheap, it's more than 30 percent cheaper than the current market price of both the 2015 and 2016 vintages.
