“Whiskey, like a beautiful woman, demands appreciation. You gaze first, then it’s time to drink.”
#LoveScotch is about empowering people to express their passion, embolden existing ambassadors and inspire those who are new to whisky, creating a movement across the globe for people to share how they enjoy their dram.
When you party,party like the Bengaluru and keeping up the spirit and the love for Scotch Whiskey, The United Spirits Limited and Diageo continued its #LoveScotch celebration in the Indian Silicon Valley. Unlike the last event which was on a Saturday,this was schedule on 27th May i.e. a Friday. For me it was a good escape after a long tireless week of work. I started off directly from the office at 5.30 pm only to reach the venue The Permit Room at around 7.30 pm,curse the Bengaluru Traffic.

The Event started at
around 7.45 pm with Anushka Manchanda,actor and singer and Nakul Shenoy, celebrated
mind reader arriving.The guest’s arrival
started an evening of celebration,candid
conversation,photo-session and yes a lot of scotch whiskey. Soon the two
celebrities got behind the bar and tried their hand at creating signature
serves and exotic cocktails with the help of United Spirits Reserve Brand
Ambassador Andrew Qadri. Anushka went with the West Coast Julep made with the
iconic Johnnie Walker Black Label while Nakul created Sunset Cinnamon infused with Black Dog Black
Reserve.After a splendid session at The Permit Room we headed out to Arbor breweries.

In Arbor, the
proceedings start with both Anushka and Nakul sharing with their Scotch experience.
To start off with Anushka, she shared her love for Johnnie Walker Black Label
which got passed on to her from her father.She went on saying her love for scotch
whiskey is timeless and wherever she travels she always bring back a bottle of
her own. Next up front was Nakul sharing his scotch love and how much he likes
a glass of VAT69 of his own. He went forward appreciating the Bartenders and saying it is no easy task to make cocktails as
it needs skill and technique to do so. The drink making session was followed by one of Nakul’s mind bending skills and I was fortunate
enough to be a part of with. Next up was the something that everyone was
waiting around for from the evening,
Anushka broke into an impromptu
gig that got the guest grooving to her beats. Meantime I too had a some candid
conversation with Anushka largerly over her experience of travelling to Assam (my native place) for several shows.She was very
down to earth and told that she loved
the place and would like to visit it again if something comes knocking. After a
quick photo session both Anushka and Nakul left for the day. I was there for
sometime more interacting with other fellow bloggers who to came to cover up the
Whether neat, on the rocks or in a cocktail, there is no right or wrong way to drink Scotch whisky, as long as you enjoy it, that’s all that matters. My way to drink whisky is sitting with some old buddies over some classics playing. Though not everyone enjoys it that way and have their style of own.
So,how do you like a glass of scotch? Please, do share….
