Honesty really is the best policy: Pay only what you think your dram is worth.
- TT Liquor, 17B Kingsland Rd, London, E2 8AA
Clear your calendar, as for one night only, single malt whisky pioneers, The Glenrothes, are opening the doors to London’s first ever pop-up ‘Honesty Bar’ at TT Liquor in Shoreditch.
On Wednesday 12th September, whisky-lovers and novices alike are invited to taste, discover and explore The Glenrothes’ new Soleo Collection; a no-nonsense range of five single malt whiskies, that guests can sip as they please, without a price list in sight. Instead, guests will be asked to simply “pay what you feel your dram is worth” at the end of the evening, without pretence or pressure, just honesty.
Tucked in the cosy basement of subterranean cocktail emporium TT Liquor, guests at The Glenrothes’ Honesty Bar can choose from the full selection of age statement whiskies in The Soleo Collection. Aged from 10 to 25 years old, all are matured in 100% sherry-seasoned oak casks, making the whisky lighter and slightly sweeter than traditional styles. A bespoke menu on the night will show off the collection, guiding you through the individual flavour profiles and allowing you to enjoy the whiskies your way: on its own, on the rocks, or expertly blended in a classic cocktail.
For clans of confessed whisky lovers, a limited number of cavernous booths will be available to book in advance, complete with a private whisky masterclass hosted by Stuart Cassells of The Glenrothes, as you sip and socialise. Reservations are available between 6.00pm-8pm and 8.30pm-10.30pm.
Tickets start from £10, which includes a welcome cocktail and a selection of Wee Plates from Mac & Wild as well access to The Glenrothes Honesty Bar experience. Upon entry, guests are permitted to enjoy a selection of drinks from a bespoke menu of cocktails and drams made with the Soleo Collection, via they ‘pay-what-you-think-it’s-worth’ concept.
