Ingredients - Rosemary Bitters

200ml Glen Moray Elgin Classic 
3 tablespoons Rosemary 
5 Juniper Berries 
3 Allspice Berries 
1 tsp Coriander Seeds 


Place all the ingredients in a clean, sterilised glass jar with a tight fitting lid. Fix the lid and give the jar a good shake. Set aside for one to two weeks, shaking daily, until you’re happy with the concentration of flavours. When ready, strain through a muslin cloth into a clean jar or bottle, squeezing out every last drop of flavour. 

To make the Glen Moray Rosemary Old Fashioned

50ml Glen Moray Elgin Classic 
1 teaspoon simple sugar syrup 
1 teaspoon Rosemary bitters 
Sprig of Rosemary to garnish 


Mix the syrup and bitters together in an Old Fashioned glass then fill with ice and give the glass a swirl. Pour over the whisky and add a few rosemary tips as a garnish. You can adjust the taste with more or less spruce bitters according to your preference.
