A winter’s kiss: hot chocolate with a whisky twist
As winter winds bring the first flurries of snow to the Scottish Highlands this month, we ask cocktail connoisseur Pip Jolley to create a bespoke Tomatin serve, ideal for the colder nights.
The ‘Cherry Whisky Winter Kiss’ is a delicious take on a classic hot chocolate, using some of our award-winning 14 Year Old. Pip’s recipe is elevated by adding festive flavours including cherry and cinnamon which go perfectly with the rich notes of any Tomatin dram.
Why not grab some Tomatin this December and try it for yourself? (Find a how-to video on our social channels)
