The Malaysian-inspired highball, brought to life at Johnnie Walker’s Gold& Syiok night, was the centre of attention among guests at its exclusive launch. The Johnnie Walker Gold& Syiok highball was specially curated by Bar and Beverage Professional, Angel Ng by fusing Johnnie Walker’s iconic Gold Label Reserve with homegrown Malaysian ingredients to deliver a blend of unique flavours.

Beyond just whisky and soda (a typical highball mixture), the Johnnie Walker Gold& Syiok highball presents a splashing sweetness of honey that engulfed the palate on the first sip, followed by fresh floral notes and a burst of sour Pomelo pulp, providing the perfect balance for the evening – a refreshing tipple with various dimensions, a truly versatile drink for any get-together.

Invited guests had fun learning how each local ingredient such as sour pomelo, nutmeg and sweet tea played a part in delivering the highball’s refreshing taste notes.
