Celebrate June’s Strawberry Moon with a Strawberry Moon Cocktail featuring Magnus!

Here’s a super-hot cocktail for this weekend or even Fourth of July celebrations. Check this out because you won’t remember the name of the brand unless you bookmark this recipe!

Maybe if you are a scotch whiskey drinker, you are aware of Magnus, but if you aren’t here’s a little more information on this great brand!


A whiskey crafted in the old way by a new generation of Vikings, MAGNUS bears the soul of our Viking ancestors and the name of just one – our founder, Magnus Eunson.

The backstory:

Magnus Eunson was a direct descendant of the Vikings who settled on Orkney hundreds of years ago. He set up his illicit still in a bothy (a small stone hut) at High Park, Kirkwall that’s still the site of our distillery today. And, while we say Highland Park was founded in 1798, in truth that’s just the year that the authorities caught up with Magnus – he was certainly making whiskey before that!
We stay true to our founder’s bold and uncompromising approach to whiskey making – very little has changed here in the last 220 years. In MAGNUS, we celebrate this unbroken tradition with a single malt whiskey, matured in Sherry seasoned American oak casks, that delivers notes of sweet vanilla, overlaid with our distinctive aromatic smokiness.


The specs:
Light golden, clear and bright(average colour tint 11.0)

Lemon | Vanilla sponge cake | Caramelised pineapple | Aromatic peat smoke | Sweet violets
