[7231]
44.49
70cl/40%

An infusion made of smooth, sweet Scotch whisky infused with the hand-zested peel of Navalino oranges and subtle accents of Indonesian cassia bark and Sri Lankan cloves.

Origins & Inspiration

It is fitting that Orangerie has been created in the second golden Elizabethan era. The earliest orangery in Britain was built in the late 1500s by Frances Carew. It was there that Queen Elizabeth 1st visited and probably tasted oranges for the first time.

In the 18th century, building an orangery became the height of fashion, particularly in Scotland. In London, two landmark orangeries were built Kensington Palace in 1705 and Kew Gardens in 1761. The inspiration for the name of the whisky infusion came while visiting the orangery at Kew.

What is Orangerie?

An infusion of Scotch whisky and natural ingredients, which complement the whisky and enhance its overall aromas and flavours. Orangerie cannot be called Scotch whisky, as it has taken on flavours from the infusion of fresh, hand-zested orange peel and exotic spices.

The Secrets

First, they use great whisky. They use a soft, sweet blend of Highland single malt and single grain whisky from Fife. Second, they use only the freshest, highest quality oranges and top class, aromatic spices. Importantly, they zest the fruit by hand and use only fresh zest in our infusion (no synthetic flavourings or oils). Only the hand-zested peel of really fresh Navalino oranges will give you the lively, vibrant flavours that are the hallmark of Orangerie.

Flavours

Fascinating aromas of fresh-peeled orange and Christmas cake spices rise from the glass. On the palate, soft, rich whisky flavours blend with hints of vanilla, cassia bark and clove, offset by sweetnatured orange.

Recommendations

Orangerie is extremely versatile. Served slightly chilled, it is a wonderful match with dark chocolate. Orangerie is also great for making extraordinary cocktails. Our simple but all time favourite: clunk some ice cubes into a tall glass, pour over Orangerie and stir through to chill. Strain into a glass of your choice and serve with a twist of fresh orange peel.
