It’s your wedding day, the most special day of your life and we are sure you have invested a lot of time in meticulously planning various elements of it. Wedding celebrations are all about having a good time with your friends and family. If your top priority is to set up a fantastic bar and ensure that your guests are bedazzled looking at your choice, we are here to help you. Be it your bachelor party/bachelorette, sangeet or the main event, every function must have something special. The Whiskypedia is here to help you choose your special collection for all your special occasions.
First of all, a list check. Which all categories of drinks you must stock at the bar? To simplify, whisky, wine, vodka and gin are the must-have categories. We are skipping beer considering winter is upon us. We recommend that you should have one or two great options for each of these categories so that your guests have enough variety to choose from. Another important endeavor from our side is to educate you on these choices as well. After all, its only fair to know what you are serving to your guests in detail. Candidly speaking, you can always give your friends the one-liners behind your choices. Let’s take a look at some of our recommendations:
The Glenlivet 12 YO is the no 1 selling single malt in India. The Glenlivet is the original flag bearer of Speyside Single Malt standard. Your beloved guests would find themselves tasting an iconic whisky that has a history of almost 200 years and brings along the tales of passion and originality.
The most selling variants of The Glenlivet are 12 YO, 15 YO and 18 YO. Our personal favourite is 15 YO. In short, if your guests are spoilt for Single Malt, then The Glenlivet is what they are going to love.
THE NAME IS ENOUGH! Moving over from Single Malt, comes the blended scotch whisky. Blended scotch whisky is a combination of finest single malts and grain whiskies. A perfect embodiment of this description is Chivas Regal which comes in variants like 12 YO, 15 YO, 18 YO, 25 YO and Ultis. Chivas Regal is a Speyside blend with Strathisla Single Malt at the heart, one of the oldest operating distilleries in Scotland. Every Chivas Regal whisky has its unique formula and selection of many aged whiskies, giving them their distinct character, flavour and taste experience.
If this doesn’t excite your guests, nothing else can.
This is the number one selling whisky in Europe. In India, the Ballantine’s whisky has been on a meteoric rise since it has arrived. Many of our followers abide by this whisky, like no other. The Ballantine’s range starts with Ballantine’s Finest, an extremely special blend created with 40 different types of grain whiskies and single malts. Whether your guests want to enjoy this blend neat, with ice or soda, there is no wrong way. The experience will stay true. The most recommended variants of Ballantine’s would be Ballantine’s Finest, 12 YO and 17 YO. From the same fold, there is also Ballantine’s Glenburgie 15 Years which is a Single Malt offering and we have got extremely fond of the same as well.
This one needs no introduction. After all, we are suggesting you the world’s largest selling premium vodka. The most distinctly recognized bottle is an iconic symbol of its popularity. This produce from Ahus, Sweden is distilled an infinite number of times and does not need any filtration. And the ways to enjoy the Absolut Vodka are almost as many times it is distilled – countless. Absolut is our absolute favourite to serve some delectable cocktails. Your guests will not be going back without giving their palate the Absolut touch. Absolut comes in different flavors as well like Absolut Lime, Absolut Mandrin, Absolut Raspberri, Absolut Citron and Absolut Grapefruit. Cocktails will always be a buzz among certain guests so don’t forget to set up the menu beforehand.
There was never a time when Jacob’s Creek did not feature at the top of our wine list. It simply wins by a long margin. With over 175 years of heritage, Jacob’s Creek is the no 1 bottled wine brand from Australia. Located in Australia’s most famous wine region, the Barossa Valley, the winery uses grapes sourced from several wine-growing regions in southeast Australia to create elegant, contemporary wines with great varietal expression. So, if you want your guests to experience the true character of the grapes and the Australian land, then look no beyond than Jacob’s Creek. We recommend its classic range with Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay Pinot Noir as our clear favourites.
