A fitting tribute to a beloved drink, the #LoveScotch Festival by The Singleton of Glen Ord was recently held to celebrate all things Scotch whisky. Spanning two days at Zebra Square, the festival kicked off on a Friday night, perfect for letting loose after a hectic week.
There were festivities aplenty for whisky enthusiasts and keen learners alike, as the #LoveScotch Festival highlighted whiskies from all four corners of Scotland, ranging from the Highlands to the Lowlands, as well as the Lowlands to Speyside and Islay. Festival goers were in for an education as whisky aficionado Jeremy Lee was on hand to provide whisky mentoring sessions. Attendees were taught how to uncover the different notes of the whiskies produced in the different regions of Scotland with The Singleton of Glen Ord Signature Sherry, Cragganmore 12 Year Old, Glenkinchie 12 Year Old and the Lagavulin 8 Year Old. Besides that, whiskies such as Talisker, Oban, Clynelish, Caol Ila and Dalwhinnie were also on show.
Besides the abundance of whiskies, the #LoveScotch Festival was also a feast for the taste buds, as a selection of food were also available. Meticulously curated to pair perfectly with the tasting notes of The Singleton of Glen Ord, the cuisines included the exotic flavors of Joloko, the latest culinary entry to Kuala Lumpur with their Caribbean grill. Poseidon Caviar & Seafood Bar was also on hand to pair The Singleton with the freshest seafood. For dessert, Love18 Chocolatier infused The Singleton with handcrafted chocolates, while The Ice Cream Bar also served The Singleton infused ice cream. The Barista Guild Asia also introduced their own interpretation of premium coffee mixed with The Singleton of Glen Ord.
Festival goers were also entertained thoroughly throughout the festival. Musical acts such as Clef Music Studio and Kaya The Band displayed their melodic talents with their own versions of classic hits as well as modern day favourites. Dr Jason Leong was also on hand to shower the crowd with laughs, while fun games, street magicians and tarot card readings also livened the atmosphere at the #LoveScotch Festival.
In a bid to promote responsible drinking, the #LoveScotch Festival also partnered with GRAB. Festival goers were able to utilize a promo code of ‘LOVESCOTCH’ to enjoy RM6 off their ride to Zebra Square.
