May 14, 2018 – Whyte & Mackay shared these three cocktails created by noted New York City bartenders in time for World Whisky Day on Saturday, May 19. Patrick Smith of The Modern at The MOMA created The Dead Ringer using Jura 10-year-old, along with absinthe, Grand Marnier, and Amontillado sherry. Punch And Pie head bartender Logan Ronkaiken used Shackleton Whisky and Blue Curacao in his Arctic Seals cocktail, and the bar team at the Baccarat Hotel created La Dame de Coeur using The Dalmore 12-year-old (with a little bit of help from another single malt).
