When it comes to whisky, some people think it should only be sipped on special occasions. But let’s be real, your favorite scotch is meant to be shared with friends and family, not sit unopened on your bar cart. Instead of waiting for an anniversary or promotion, go ahead and serve up a dram for game night, impromptu happy hour or even Whisky Wednesday and Single Malt Saturday. Cheers to that!
Worried about throwing a ho-hum party that leaves guests yawning into their cocktail glasses?
Then it’s definitely time to elevate your hosting game. With just a little creativity (and plenty of The Glenlivet), you can take that next at-home get-together from ordinary to extraordinary in five simple steps. You’re about to become the hottest whisky host in town…
1. OPEN A BOTTLE ANYTIME, ANYWHERE
2. There’s so much more than “neat”
Hear us out – neat is great. But why not expand your love for scotch and explore new ways to enjoy it? Try The Glenlivet with a splash of water, on the rocks or from the freezer instead. Even better, shake things up and show off your mixology skills by experimenting with tried-and-true or brand new cocktail recipes.
We’ve even got a whole scotchtail selection with 20+ recipes to help inspire you.
3. SEND INVITES RIGHT TO THEIR INBOX
Forget verbal invites that go in one ear and out the other. With just a few clicks, you can send out digital invitations that are sleek, smooth and guaranteed to impress (much like our whisky). Your guests won’t have any excuse for not showing up – unless they really dislike good company and great scotch.
4. THE RIGHT LABEL CAN SAY IT ALL
Did you know that you can turn your own bottle into a testament of whisky love? Create free customized bottle labels with witty and humorous sayings that’ll stand out and make guests chuckle. Whether it’s a sassy or thoughtful comment, they’ll add character to your whisky collection and kick-start some conversations, too.
5. PUT EVERYONE’S TASTE BUDS TO THE TEST
Really step it up by arranging a tasting flight of your favorite whiskies, then share your expertise with guests. If you don’t know everything about each bottle, study up on some flavor notes beforehand to sound like a connoisseur! Two sips we’d pick: The Glenlivet 14 Year Old with notes of ripe poached pears and chocolate-coated raisins or The Glenlivet 12 Year Old with its silky vanilla sweetness and subtle marzipan spice. You can take it from there.
LAST STEP: WHERE TO GET YOUR WHISKY
You didn’t think we’d leave out a major detail like that, did you? Whether you want to get The Glenlivet delivered or just restock from the local store, you can get started here. Just make sure the scotch doesn’t run out before the party does. No guest enjoys that.
So there you have it, everything you need to host like a pro from now on.
