The Glenlivet, the original Speyside single malt Scotch has unveiled a ‘Capsule Collection’ of glassless cocktails that redefine the way whisky is traditionally enjoyed. Launching during this year's London Cocktail Week in partnership with cocktail legend Alex Kratena, the limited-edition collection is a range of delicious whisky cocktails served in a super-sustainable seaweed-extract casing, one of nature’s most renewable resources.
A first of its kind for a spirit brand, the edible capsules are 23ml in size, fully biodegradable and provide the perfect flavour-explosion experience. Enjoy them by simply popping them in your mouth for an instant burst of flavour - no need for a glass, ice or cocktail stirrer!
Alex Kratena has created three original recipes for the capsules which include:
- Citrus: blends vibrant bergamot, zesty grapefruit and almond with pepper and the creamy sweetness of The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve.
- Wood: combines The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve with powerful woody notes of cedar, sandalwood and nutty oloroso.
- Spice: blends the rich full bodied notes of The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve with base note of vetiver, dark walnut bitter, leather and tobacco.
The ‘Capsule Collection’ launch is part of The Glenlivet’s new global campaign – Original By Tradition – and is the first spirits brand in the world to team up with the capsule designers Notpla, a sustainable packaging start-up, to create an original consumption experience. The Capsule Collection will be available at tayēr (Old Street, London) and served as an amuse-bouche on arrival throughout this year’s London Cocktail Week. Head down to tayēr for this tradition-breaking experience and enjoy the future of whisky drinking.
