Auchentoshan's VIP brunch featured a whisky-balancing "acromedian"


There's the kind of brunch that you roll out of bed thinking only "me. want. food.". Then there's something a bit more refined: Auchentoshan's invite-only brunch series hosted Nov 16th & 17th at Luxbar and BOKA. The afternoons featured meat, whisky, cabaret performers, and of course, America's Got Talent's Rudi Macaggi, balancing upside down on a basketball supported by three levels of bottles.

Auchentoshan brunch

Each event had its own dynamic Auchen-creation. Luxbar offered the Across the Pond (2.5oz Auchentoshan 12 Year, 1 oz earl grey tea infused honey syrup, 2 dashes aromatic bitters, stirred and garnished with a lemon zest) while BOKA served up The Lonely Shepherd (Auchentoshan Three Wood, Calvados, demerara sugar, sea salt, tobacco rinsed glass).

Ahh, the old balancing your head on a basketball that's supported by whisky bottles and glassware trick. Gets 'em every time.
