Monkey Shoulder Global Brand Ambassador swings by Hyde & Seek and Ku De Ta

| June 25, 2014
Dean Callan, Global Brand Ambassador of Monkey Shoulder, played host to guests during his guest bartending shifts at two of Bangkok’s most in-vogue venues, Hyde & Seek Gastro Bar and Ku De Ta, at which he presented special cocktails featuring the world’s First Triple Malt Scotch Whisky, Monkey Shoulder.  The self-confessed whisky geek treated guests to a high-energy session in concocting whisky-based cocktails emphasizing the rich taste and mellow vanilla smoothness  of Monkey Shoulder .

Lastly “Mamie Taylor”, a blend of Monkey Shoulder, fresh lime juice and classic Ginger Ale, was served with ginger biscuit.Inline image 6

Monkey Shoulder, a two-fingered salute to the stuffiness of Scotch snob traditionalism, draws on some sublimely awesome single malt whiskies; all malt, no grain, no compromise. Enjoy the versatility of Monkey Shoulder straight up (in a whisky snifter, naturally), over ice, or mixed in cocktails as seen on these two nights.
