Glorious Twelfth? Friday the Thirteenth? It’s Time for Whiskey

It may be Friday the thirteenth but here’s something good to shout about.

In celebration of the Glorious Twelfth, the UK’s official start to the shooting season, The Dalmore whisky and are inviting diners to celebrate a ‘jolly good shot’ today.

Any diner ordering grouse in celebration of the Glorious Twelfth will receive a dram of the exclusive 40-year-old whisky worth around £200.

August 12 is one of the busiest days in the shooting season, with large amounts of game; grouse in particular, being shot. The season provides a significant boost to the rural economy in moorland areas and although Londoners may not be able to take part in the activity directly, they certainly can enjoy the catches of the season.

Corrigans’ grouse will be one of the first to arrive in the capital following its Glorious Twelve demise and overnight hanging. Chris Mcgowan, Chef Director of Corrigans will prepare his famous Grouse pie with the spoils of the shoot ready to be paired with The Dalmore over lunch or dinner. Just twenty drams will be available so urban diners will need to be fast in hunting it down in Mayfair.

The Dalmore is a rare and very special single malt whisky, crafted in small batches using an artisan philosophy that has been passed down through generations. It is renowned for its distinction and aristocratic pedigree, rewarding its loyal admirers with a unique, full taste that reflects its deep history and origins.

London retailers stocking this exclusive whiskey include Harrods and Selfridges.
