BBaF Podcast Episode 46: Aberlour Single Malt Scotch with Callum O’Donnell

Listen to Episode 46: Aberlour Single Malt Scotch with Callum O’Donnell”

We are continuing our Scotch whisky streak with this week’s Bit by a Fox Podcast. I recently interviewed Scotsman, Callum O’Donnell, the brand new, fresh faced global brand ambassador for Aberlour, the beloved Single Malt Scotch produced in the heart of Speyside, and known for their sherry cask aging. We talked about his time in the Dominican Republic getting his brand ambassador legs, the small town of Aberlour’s magical Druid history, and the new Aberlour release, Casg Annamh. Be sure to listen for a surprise cameo from one of downtown LA’s great bartenders.

The cocktail recipe this week is one of Callum’s favorites, a scotch-based Whisky Sour.

Scotch Whisky Sour
2 oz Scotch Whisky
Juice from half a lemon
1/2 ounce simple syrup
Egg white
Angostura Bitters
Lemon twist for garnish

Add the whisky, lemon juice, simple and egg white to a shaker with one large ice cube and shake vigorously until chilled. Add more ice and shake some more. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass until the drink develops a foamy head. Add the aromatic bitters. Express the oils from the lemon twist and garnish.
