Anushka Manchanda & Nakul Shenoy at Diageo #Lovescotch campaign in Bengaluru

Anushka Manchanda & Nakul Shenoy share their love for Scotch Whisky during the #Lovescotch campaign in Bengaluru

On 26thMay 2016  I was invited for #lovescotch event. What is this event? Why scotch?? Keeping in mind Bengaluru’s love for Scotch Whisky, USL Diageo continued its celebration of #Lovescotch in the garden city. This weeks Pub Crawl was hosted by the sensational Singer, Actor Anushka Manchanda and the much sought after mind reader Nakul Shenoy. 

The evening entailed candid conversations and precious moments around Scotch whisky which began at Permit Room and ended at Arbor. The evening marked the celebration of everything that gives Scotch Whisky its unique character, flavour and personality, as Anushka and Nakul shared their experiences about their favourite liquids. The two celebrities got behind the bar and tried their hand at creating signature serves and exotic cocktails with the help of United Spirits Reserve Brand Ambassador Andrew Qadri. Anushka went with the West Coast Julep made with the iconic Johnnie Walker Black Label while Nakul created Sunset Cinnamon infused with Black Dog Black Reserve.

The spirited evening got even more interesting when Anushka broke into an impromptu gig that got the guest grooving to her beats while Nakul mesmerized one and all with his mind bending skills. The #lovescotch pub crawl undeniably left the audience wanting more and brought alive Bengaluru’s love for Scotch Whisky.

Talking about her love for Scotch Whisky Anushka Manchanda said, “Scotch is the world’s favourite whisky and my love for it is timeless. My father’s favourite Scotch Whisky is Johnnie Walker Black Label and hence mine too! Whenever and wherever I globe trot I always bring him a bottle of his favorite Scotch Whisky and It’s almost like a ritual now. It's the first whisky I knew, and the one I enjoy sipping the most.”

Commenting on this, Nakul Shenoy, said, “I enjoy and savour my glass of Vat69 Scotch Whisky. It embodies the spirit of being unique and doing things differently which resonates with me. The pub crawl was amazing fun and a great way to showcase our love for Scotch Whisky. I now realize it is no easy task to make cocktails as it needs skill and technique to do so. Whether neat, on the rocks or in a cocktail, there is no right or wrong way to drink Scotch whisky, as long as you enjoy it, that’s all that matters.”

Scotch continues to be the world’s favourite whisky, with 95 million cases sold across 256 countries.  Around the world, consumers enjoy Scotch in many different ways. In Europe it’s served neat, while in South America it’s enjoyed with Coconut Water and in the Caribbean with tropical juices. In the United States it’s enjoyed with Cola or as part of a cocktail. In India, consumers have a strong appreciation for spices and exotic ingredients. Their evolved/zealous palates enjoy distinct flavours, hence Scotch infused cocktails are best enjoyed here with either spice-based concoctions or when paired with a zesty food menu to complement it.
