As temperatures fall, the days become shorter and summer feels like an increasingly distant memory, it’s safe to say many Brits are looking for something to lighten up these dark autumnal days. Indeed, research from the whisky reveals that over 8/10 Brits* feel they were robbed of their summer enjoyment, with staycations and socially-distanced meet ups replacing foreign holidays and a jam-packed social calendar.
However, help is at hand courtesy of The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve, The Glenlivet’s first ever whisky to be selectively finished in Caribbean rum barrels. With a history of breaking tradition, The Glenlivet is helping to extend summer by bringing the sunny spirit of the Caribbean Islands to consumers’ homes this autumn, via the world of Single Malts. This autumn, The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve, a Single Malt selectively finished in Caribbean rum barrels, will extend that summer feeling for Brits with its ‘Caribbean Reserve Tartan Tiki’ cocktail kit delivery service.
The first 20 lucky All In Londoners to use code WinWithTheGlenlivet on their website before 1st November can get a free cocktail kit at home, as well as being in with a chance to win their delivery of a Caribbean Reserve Tartan Tiki cocktail kit direct to their door by The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve Tartan Tiki delivery service!** Guaranteed to turn a few heads, the delivery service will be making its way to homes across the capital on the 5th November.
Safely delivered by drivers in branded The Glenlivet uniforms, the box will contain everything needed to make the whisky’s signature tropical inspired Caribbean Reserve Tartan Tiki served from the comfort of their own home. Included in the box will be a 70cl bottle of The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve, alongside two soda waters, a mini bottle of Angostura Bitters, pineapple juice and an orange to garnish, making around six to eight Caribbean Reserve Tartan Tiki tipples – guaranteed to bring a splash of sunshine to cocktail occasions.
Those looking for something to brighten up those darkening days across the UK will also be able to purchase their own Tartan Tiki box for an RRP of £49.50, with limited stocks available.
Marnie Corrigan, Brand Director for whiskies at Pernod Ricard UK says,
“Our research tells us Brits feel like they definitely didn’t get to enjoy the warmer months, so we wanted to defy the norms of winter cocktail making and bring some of that summer spirit to the country, turning the typical into the tropical with a delivery service for our Caribbean Reserve Tartan Tiki cocktail kits. We know that The Glenlivet brand is built on breaking traditions, which is why we are bringing a taste of the Caribbean to Brits at this chilly time of year, through our partnership with createcocktails.com, at a time when at home entertaining occasions are more important than ever.”
The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve is available for purchase at Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Amazon and Co-op for an RRP of £38.59. With its bold, smooth flavours, and rich caramel notes, alongside tropical fruits, it’s the latest example of The Glenlivet’s bold moves in the world of Single Malts, and the perfect whisky to keep the spirit of summer alive this autumn.
The Caribbean Reserve Tartan Tiki cocktail kits and delivery service are available to over 18s only (age verification will be required) and Ts&Cs apply.
