Ice-Cream and Single Malt whisky.. can’t think of two things we love more in this world.
And with that in mind, we gladly accepted the invitation to a Singleton Selects event, held at The Ice-cream bar, last week.
With nearly 200 years of whisky making history, The Singleton range consists of Single Malt Scotch Whisky from three distilleries: Glen Ord, Dufftown and Glendullan. Operating since 1838, Glen Ord is the oldest distillery and the only Highlander in The Singleton family. A product of Black Isle’s barley, The Singleton Glen Ord is available in Malaysia in four variants – Signature, 12-year-old, 15-year-old and 18-year-old, and we would get to try them at The Ice Cream bar, as they would be infused into the ice-creams.
Founded by the creative masterminds of The Inside Scoop, well-known for unconventional ice cream flavours, The Ice Cream Bar is a new establishment which focuses on creatively blending food ingredients with its handcrafted ice-cream, offering an additional layer of complexity to consumers’ taste buds.
With an immense love for anything that tantalizes the senses, Lim Shiew Li and Edmund Tan, founders of The Ice Cream Bar (and Inside Scoop) took up the challenge to create three exclusive ice cream flavours by fusing its freshly made ice cream with The Singleton’s distinct expressions. Each ice cream features a Singleton variant:
• The Singleton Whisky Cream – The Singleton of Glen Ord 18-year-old with milk, cream, sugars, egg yolks
• The Singleton Whisky & Nuts – The Singleton of Glen Ord Signature with milk, cream, sugars, sponge cake, honey roasted almonds, salted caramel
• The Singleton Crunchy Coffee Whisky – The Singleton of Glen Ord 12-year-old with milk, cream, sugars, coffee, cocoa, waffle cone bits, dark chocolate and Nutella
Anyway, we all had a hand at trying to construct an ice-cream cake from scratch.. and as it turned out, the Singleton whisky-ice cream was incredibly smooth, creamy and aromatic. Funny but I heard someone mutter, YES, there’s life beyond rum and raisin..
The Singleton Selects x The Ice Cream Bar menu will be available at The Ice Cream Bar, Desa Sri Hartamas from 25 May 2016 onwards till end July 2016.
A super fun and decadent event.. definitely a great night out for ice-cream and single malt whisky lovers.
