Challenge your take on whiskey

MAY 9, 2018

When Whisky Live is in town from 17 to 19 May for its annual ‘Celebrations’ tasting event at Menlyn Park Shopping Centre in Pretoria, Scottish Leader will be there to challenge perspectives. This globally recognised whisky brand’s award-winning range, including its Original, Signature and 12-year-old blends, will be on offer, with expert guidance provided by whisky aficionados Mandy Henry and Vincent Motau.  

Join these beverage experts for a chat about whisky and how Scottish Leader is taking its ethos of viewing whisky and life in general from a new vantage point to a whole new level. The brand is doing just so, sharing a new Afro-optimistic perspective through a creative partnership with Soweto’s popular I See A Different You collective.

This innovative duo is currently featured on an array of eye-catching billboards situated across South African cities, the start of a nationwide campaign that will be rolled out in several stages over the next 18 months. It’s aimed at those prepared to see beauty in the everyday, those who are slightly alternative and inquisitive in nature – just like the brands’ Scotch blending team.

Scottish Leader is crafted by a single, dedicated blending team with nearly 400 years’ combined experience. These experts offer a wealth of experience and skill, as well as a forward-thinking, dynamic outlook. Lead blender Dr Kirstie McCallum’s signature on each bottle is her personal guarantee of the commitment and high values she and her team bring to the ancient art of whisky blending while looking towards the future.
