Auchentoshan unveils Bartenders’ Malt

06 July 2017

Auchentoshan has teamed up with bartenders to create a single malt for, you guessed it, bartenders.

The limited edition Bartenders’ Malt is the first of its kind for the brand.

Every single element – from the selection of cask liquids to the packaging and branding of the expression – was controlled by the New Malt Order bartenders (below).

To familiarise you, the New Malt Order was a competition to hero bartending talent. Five countries were invited to create their own bitters using Auchentoshan new make spirit. The shortlist was judged by a panel in each country to identify the lucky 12.

The winning bartenders were invited to the home of Auchentoshan in Glasgow to meet the rest of the Order for a five-day immersion into the city and the brand.

After a crash course from the brand’s master blender, the Malt Order set about creating its blend.

The Bartenders’ Malt’s is presented in a premium carton and features the 12 bartenders’ signatures.

‘Throughout this incredible journey, the New Malt Order bartenders have showcased exactly why they were selected to join Auchentoshan’s unique global collective,’ Judith Giegerich, senior international brand manager malts for Beam Suntory, said.

‘They have each made an indelible mark on our Single Malt to create not just a new liquid but a new interpretation of our brand. We’re proud to champion the talents of dynamic bartenders from around the world who refuse to be constrained by tradition and look forward to sharing The Bartenders’ Malt with the global bartending community.’
