About #lovescotch
#LoveScotch is about empowering people to express their passion, embolden existing ambassadors and inspire those who are new to whisky, creating a movement across the globe for people to share how they enjoy their dram.

When you party,party like the Bengaluru and keeping up the spirit and the love for  Scotch Whiskey, The United Spirits Limited and Diageo continued its #LoveScotch celebration in the Indian Silicon Valley. Unlike the last event which was on a Saturday,this was schedule on  27th May i.e. a Friday. For me it was a good escape after  a long tireless week of work. I started  off directly from the office at 5.30 pm only to reach the venue  The Permit Room at around 7.30 pm,curse the Bengaluru Traffic. 

The Permit Room

The Event started at around 7.45 pm with Anushka Manchanda,actor and singer and Nakul Shenoy, celebrated mind reader arriving.The  guest’s arrival  started an evening  of  celebration,candid conversation,photo-session and yes  a  lot of scotch whiskey. Soon 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.After a splendid session at The Permit Room we headed out to Arbor breweries.

Miss Bartender

Arbor Brewing Co

In Arbor, the proceedings start with both Anushka and Nakul sharing with their Scotch experience. To start off with Anushka, she shared her love for Johnnie Walker Black Label which got passed on to her from  her  father.She went on saying her love for scotch whiskey is timeless and wherever she travels she always bring back a bottle of her  own. Next up front was  Nakul  sharing his scotch love and how much he likes a glass of VAT69 of his own. He went  forward appreciating the Bartenders and  saying it is no easy task to make cocktails as it needs skill and technique to do so. The drink making session was  followed by one of Nakul’s  mind bending skills and I was fortunate enough to be a part of with. Next up was the something that everyone was waiting around  for from the evening, Anushka broke into an impromptu gig that got the guest grooving to her beats. Meantime I too had a some candid conversation with Anushka largerly over her experience of travelling to Assam (my  native place) for several shows.She was very down to earth  and told that she loved the place and would like to visit it again if something comes knocking. After a quick photo session both Anushka and Nakul left for the day. I was there for sometime more interacting with other  fellow bloggers who to came to cover up the event.
The Drinks


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. My way to drink whisky is sitting  with some old buddies over some classics playing. Though not everyone enjoys it that way and have their style of own.
