This November, The Birdcage at Bird of Smithfield invites customers to experience a taste of Islay with an immersive Scottish hideaway. Partnering with the progressive Hebridean distiller, Bruichladdich® (brookh-lad-dee), the space will be transformed into a cosy winter lodge, offering the perfect escape from the cold for Londoners from until the end of January.
On arrival, guests can relax and enjoy a warming whisky cocktail or two against the backdrop of the beautiful Isle of Islay. You’ll find a selection of Bruichladdich® winter cocktails, including the Islay of Laddie cocktail with plum bitters and blackcurrant foam and The Stinging Scot with nettle reductions, vanilla bitters and kumquats.
There’s also a tasting trio of Bruichladdich’s exceptional malts, discovering the three different peating levels of Classic Laddie, Port Charlotte and Octomore, for only £15. You too can venture down to the Bird Of Smithfield and try the Classic Laddie – Bruichladdich’s signature malt which is a reflection of Bruichladdich’s unique philosophies – the land, the people and the raw local material from which it is made. The heavily peated Port Charlotte, is a tribute to the men who once worked at the Lochindaal Distillery and the legacy they passed on. Octomore, the world’s most heavily peated single malt, is a dram that has taken the world by storm.
The Bruichladdich Winter Lodge will be open throughout November, December and January in The Birdcage at Bird of Smithfield. Unique Bruichladdich warming cocktails will be available from £10.
