Whisky enthusiasts all across the world celebrate World Whiskey Day with tastings, events, and gatherings. On the day of the event, participants are urged to raise one glass to commemorate the occasion.

Every year on the third Saturday in May, World Whisky Day was observed on Saturday, May 21, 2022.

At the Norfolk Hotel in Nairobi, Moet Hennessy Eastern Africa Marketing Manager Alexandre Helaine took advantage of the chance to give whiskey fans to a ‘full course’ Single Malt Scotch Whiskey tasting experience.

To commemorate World Whisky Day, Glenmorangie presented a cocktail experience at the Bar Next Door for top influencers and Single Malt Whisky enthusiasts.
The event featured the creation of unique Glenmorangie drinks in a unique location, creating an unforgettable celebrating experience.

Glenmorangie is always welcoming visitors to sample and enjoy the whisky in sensory playgrounds inspired by the brand’s delectable beverages.
Glenmorangie welcomes you to enjoy Scotland’s smoothest and most beautiful single malt whisky on World Whisky Day.

Whiskey connoisseurs will concur that if you are unfamiliar with the aroma and flavor of a particular whiskey brand, you will be sipping backstreet whiskeys accessible in the market, believing you are drinking that brand.

Perhaps this is why Glenmorangie’s Alexandre Helaine decided to provide special instruction to guests on how to identify the whiskey they are tasting.

This is a simple way to taste your whisky. Examine the appearance – is it what you’re used to?

Swirl the glass and look for streaks of liquid running down the inside.
Watch as the glass shakes. How long do the bubbles last? The stronger the alcoholic strength, the longer it takes.

Sniffing – Place your nose close to the glass, but not so close that the alcohol burns your nose. Short, sharp sniffs are recommended.
Take a deep swig of your whisky. The tongue produces taste, but the nose produces flavor.

About Glenmorangie

Since 1843, Glenmorangie has been lovingly distilled. William Matheson, our company’s founder, was a visionary and perfectionist. He developed a single malt whisky that is unparalleled in terms of delicacy, smoothness, and flavor complexity.
The dish is deceptively easy, but the level of attention to detail is incredible. We make an excellent mash by combining the pure mineral-rich waters of the Tarlogie Springs with local golden Scottish barley, which we then distill in Scotland’s tallest malt whiskey stills to create a purer, smoother whisky.

The necks alone are taller than a fully grown adult male giraffe, standing at 5.24 meters (nearly 16 feet). What is the advantage of this height obsession?

Only the lightest and cleanest vapors condense into our spirit, which is then aged in Missouri White Oak barrels. (It will take at least ten years.) These carefully selected casks, made from 100-year-old trees and seasoned for another two years after felling, provide a hue and a creamy smoothness of flavor that is complete perfection.

There are, of course, simpler and faster ways to produce whisky. There are many other single malts. But after tasting Glenmorangie, you’ll never want to try anything else since we are unwavering in our belief in the way our whisky is made, regardless of the effort or cost.
