Edibles. They’re not just for stoners anymore.
Thanks to this new product innovation from The Glenlivet, whisky drinkers are now able to nibble their way toward a more blissful state.
Described as a first of its kind for a spirit brand, the edible capsules are 23ml in size, fully biodegradable and provide the “perfect flavour-explosion” experience.
Miriam Eceolaza, director of The Glenlivet, said, “As a brand that celebrates originality, we are always looking to break the conventions that have determined how single malt Scotch has historically been enjoyed. Our founder, George Smith, always went against the grain, bucking tradition and doing things differently. The Glenlivet Capsule Collection continues his pioneering spirit today.”
According to Scotsman.com, the Glenlivet Capsule Collection will be available at Tayēr (Tayēr + Elementary, Old Street, London) and served as an amuse-bouche on arrival throughout this year’s London Cocktail Week (4th – 13th October), the city’s celebration of perfectly mixed cocktail innovations.
The capsules or edibles, if you like, come in three flavors.
Citrus: The Citrus Capsule blends vibrant bergamot, zesty grapefruit and almond with pepper and the warmth of The Glenlivet’s Founder’s Reserve.
Wood: The Wood Capsule combines The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve with powerful woody notes of cedar and sandalwood, as well as tannins of nutty oloroso.
Spice: The Spice Capsule blends the rich full bodied notes of The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve with base note of vetiver, dark walnut bitter, leather and tobacco.
If you believe this capsule thing is a lie or an abomination, you’re not alone. People on Twitter are talking about putting the capsules in their bottoms. Because…Twitter.
On the other hand, if you prefer to drink Scotch whisky around the fire with good friends, there’s still a place for that.
