Monkey Shoulder’s a quirky, fun name for a whisky isn’t it? And renowned for their entertaining events as well, they didn’t disappoint with their latest ‘For One Night Only’ event, The Malt Jockey.
The latest night saw Monkey Shoulder’s Global Brand Ambassador, Dean Callan, unveil his new Manhattan cocktail – Malt Jockey – to an excitable audience in Shoreditch. The theme for the night was ‘An Evening at The Races’, with attendees invited to race remote controlled horses around a Scalextric track. And while people were playing jockey with their trigger fingers others could place bets on the races.
Professional bartenders kept guests liquidated throughout the evening by serving up delicious Monkey Shoulder cocktails, while Street Kitchen sated any hunger with their tasty snacks.
