Cocktail: Ice Layers | Bartender: Evans Otieno

Inspired by the Clynelish Distillery on the Northern part of Scotland that experiences very cold winters and iced landscapes. The kind of whiskey produced there are crisp and fresh and make it easier to build on new flavours to compliment the whisky. With the era of cordial, I came up with this cocktail to play around with different complexity in the whisky cocktail.
