YTL Hotels introduces limited edition whisky

YTL Hotels has unveiled its own limited edition whisky available at all five YTL properties across the UK.

YTL Hotels has unveiled its own limited edition whisky available at all five properties across the UK.

Commissioned by Dato’ Mark Yeoh, executive director YTL Hotels, the new whisky is a bespoke Adelphi Glenborrodale Batch Six, with 150 bottles exclusively labelled for the hotel group.

He says: “We are delighted to be working with Adelphi, Scotland’s most acclaimed bottler of rare single cask and limited-edition single malt whisky. It really is the ideal partnership between two family-run businesses, each focused on delivering world-class service and products and we can’t wait to see guests enjoying this special drink across YTL’s properties.”

The new whisky is available for guests to enjoy at all UK properties, including Threadneedles and The Academy in London as well as The Gainsborough Bath Spa. Guests can also sample a dram at Monkey Island Estate, Bray, where the blend will be housed in the hotel’s Whisky Keep and served in the intimate Whisky Snug, which is accessed by a secret staircase. 

At The Glasshouse, Edinburgh, the beverage joins the hotel’s collection of more than 160 Scotch malts. The Glasshouse's 17 luxurious suites are all named after a local whisky distillery or region including Macallan, Dalwhinnie and Glenfiddich. Guests at The Glasshouse can go on bespoke tours of nearby distilleries. General manager Tom Gibson, who coordinated the new YTL Whisky, can guide guests through their choices or create bespoke whisky cocktails.

Gibson said: “The dark gold YTL Whisky is evocative of a summer Scottish breakfast with buttered oatcakes and heather honey. Guests can look forward to flavours including dark cherry, white peach and kiwi fruit compote and hazelnut spread on well-toasted drop scones.”

YTL Hotels is already looking to bottle another batch to be served at its properties beyond the UK.

A total of 1,496 bottles of the Adelphi Glenborrodale Batch six were made, named after Glenborrodale, or “fortified valley”, a small village two-miles from Adelphi’s Ardnamurchan distillery on the north shore of Loch Sunart.

The YTL Whisky is £14 for a 50ml measure.
