Celebrate World Whisky Day 2020 by making these summer special cocktails at home 

Today is the one day, that Whisky is officially celebrated as its 'World Whisky Day (WWD)'. First founded in 2012 by whisky consultant Blair Bowman, the day is an annual celebration of the spirit and takes place on the third Saturday of May each year. If your favourite tipple is whisky or scotch, pour yourself an extra drink today in honour of the day. But instead of the usual on the rocks or a Highball, why not treat yourself to the flavours of a delectable cocktail? We cannot help but reminisce the many occasions we have enjoyed our favourite cocktails amongst friends and family. With the on-going pandemic, virtual happy hours have replaced stepping out, but that does not mean one cannot be their own bartender and make themselves a whisky cocktail in the comfort of their homes.

This World Whisky Day, learn the art of making a few of the fine whisky cocktails from the comfort of your home. Have a look at some of them here:
