Glenkinchie Distillery

600 X 250 Glenkinchie

Not everyone enjoys whisky on its own, so whisky mixers and cocktails are a favourite alternative for many. As Glenkinchie is used in some of the Johnnie Walker blends, it’s no surprise that they offer Johnnie Walker mixers this Father’s Day as a thank you to all the busy dads!

“Smokey Coke” is a whisky mixer for which they use Johnnie Walker Double black and Coke. Why smokey? In the Johnnie Walker Blend, a high percentage of Single Malts are peated, hence the name.

After your tasting, why not treat yourself to a gift pack or tweed gift. With 20% off, this promotion is too good to miss! From 14th- 17th June they will be doing Smokey Cokes (Whisky and Coke) and 20% off all collection packs and Men’s Tweed.
