What better way to start your morning than with an immaculate single malt? It may be unconventional, but we urge you to replace Bloody Marys and Mimosas with a new kind of brunch cocktail, the Scottish Breakfast, featuring Highland Park 12 Years Old. It’s the perfect partner for eggs or pancakes; the lemon and mint gives the cocktail a refreshing taste and the Bacon Simple Syrup (yes, we did say bacon!) adds a savory element that you have to taste to believe.

Shake and serve over ice in a rocks glass.
Later, when your stomach starts shouting for something a bit heartier, The Black and Blue, featuring The Black Grouse Blended Scotch Whisky, is a delicious complement to barbequed and smoked foods - not to mention relaxing by the fireside. When it comes to ending the evening on a high note, nothing comes close to The Black and Blue.
