Celebrate World Whisky Day with The Perfect Pear | The Lakes Distillery Celebrate World Whisky Day with The Perfect Pear – The Lakes Distillery

You know what they say, a pear a day keeps the doctor away. Or, at least that’s the expression we’re living by this month!

As the milder summer evenings approach, we’re looking for something clean and crisp, with a little extra punch to whet our whisky temptations. The newest addition to our cocktail consortium is strong enough to add a big boozy burst of flavour and notes of honey and vanilla to compliment the gently tart pear. Throw in a jam-packed concentration of orchard flavours along with The ONE British Isles Blended Whisky  and you’ve got both a wonderful digestif and stand-alone party treat.

The pear, in many places, symbolises comfort, prosperity, integrity and grace. Combine these forces of good with a gathering of good company, good food and (hopefully) good weather, and you’ve got yourself a first-class summer bash. If you thought eating pears was delicious, drinking them is even better…

The ingredients for the Perfect Pear are simple, and prep time is next to nothing. Just follow the recipe below to make your drink look fantastic and taste amazing.

40ml The One British Isles Blended Whisky

10ml Honey Whisky Liqueur

15ml Lemon Juice

7.5ml Vanilla Syrup

50ml Pressed Pear juice


Add first five ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Shake gently to combine flavours. Single strain in to an ice filled glass and top with soda. Garnish your  glass with a tasty sliver of pear, for a burst of magnificent aromas and a delicate yet sweet kick… that counts as one of your five a day, right?
