Originally meaning ‘water of life’ in Gaelic, it’s believed that whisky making began in Scotland. As winemaking methods spread from monasteries in Europe, without access to grapes, monks used grain mash instead to produce the ancestor of the popular spirit. It’s now made across the world including Canada, Japan and even Australia.
Appreciation is needed for the subtle art of dilution and sweetness that is a Scotch & Soda. Energy with the sheer drinkability that a little bit of fizz can bring to an otherwise pure and complex spirit.
2 ounces scotch
Club soda, chilled, to top
Garnish: lemon twist
Add the scotch to a highball glass filled with ice.
Top with club soda and stir briefly to combine.
Garnish with an optional lemon twist.
