Cask Speyside Summer Highball

Summertime in Scotland can bring a mix of weather but the last few years we have been seeing temperatures going over 30 degrees celsius! We love sipping whisky in all weathers, but sometimes when it is hot, we crave a refreshing and cool drink...

When times are hot and you need to cool down, here's a whisky cocktail that requires all the effort of lifting a few bottles and stirring their contents together. We've gone for a fruity twist on the timeless classic of the whisky highball. 

Traditionally a simple and refreshing mix of whisky and soda, over ice, we've added red vermouth and a twist of orange. The dry and spicy vermouth with the punch of citrus really complement the subtle sweetness in our Cask Speyside.  

Here's how to make our Cask Speyside Summer Highball...  we're off to lie down in a cool, dark whisky warehouse. 

High Ball IngredientsIngredients:

  • 30ml Cask Speyside
  • 15ml Red Vermouth

  • Orange for garnish


  1. Fill your highball glass with ice.
  2. Add the Cask Speyside, Red Vermouth, and stir.
  3. Top up your glass with Soda Water.
