Bergamot Highball

Ballantine's Glentauchers Bergamot Highball

Many countries have their own complex and unique fruit. We wanted to showcase a popular, yet relatively unknown citrus: the bergamot. The flavour is instantly recognisable, and the bittersweet, tart notes harmonise with the red berry and citrus notes of the Glentauchers.

The dry, delicate citrus pairs with oysters, sourced from any country, although we would suggest that this works better with creamier, meatier varieties.


  • 50ml Glentauchers 15 Year Old Single Malt
  • 100ml Soda Water
  • 500ml Italicus
  • 500ml Water
  • Ice Garnish: Mint Sprigs
  • Food Pairing: Local Oysters

How We Make It

  • Place the mint sprigs facing upwards in the ice moulds before filling with water and freezing overnight.
  • Create a flavoured liquid by adding the Italicus to the water and infuse the ice in the flavoured liquid.
  • Place the cubes in the liquid or pour the liquid over the cubes to submerge and place back in the freezer for 24 hours.
  • Place two ungarnished cubes, followed by a single garnished cube, in a highball glass.
  • Add Glentauchers 15 Year Old Single Malt and top up with Soda water.
  • Take your time to sip and savour. As the ice melts, it will accentuate the wonderful flavours of the whisky.
