Single malt Scotch whiskey is rarely considered when crafting cocktails, but Taisteal whiskey is hoping to be the exception by positioning itself as a spirit for blending. Specifically targeting the cocktail scene, this whiskey has already cracked into Hong Kong. According to Joe Milner, managing director of Hong Kong-based wine and spirits company Milestone Beverages, “Traditionally, whisky enthusiasts would consider it wrong to put a single malt Scotch into a cocktail. Taisteal is here to change that perception by providing Millennials a pass to enjoy single malts."
The release of Taisteal whiskey follows a growing cocktail craze that aims to undermine the perceptions commonly held by whiskey purists. Aimed more towards younger drinkers, Taisteal whiskey wants to provide Millennials with the opportunity to enjoy exceptional scotch within conforming to antiquated traditions of the category.
