Whether you’re able to spend time together in person or are planning a virtual celebration, why not surprise your Mum with a taste adventure or an outdoor adventure that you can enjoy together?
A question of taste
Tune into the Highland Park Whisky YouTube channel and follow our tasting videos online. Pick your whisky (or whiskies) in advance – make sure you’ve both chosen the same ones! – and enjoying finding out more about whisky appreciation and comparing notes on the flavours you discover.
An old-fashioned treat
Treat your mum to a special cocktail to celebrate Mother’s Day. We think our delicious Cherry and Chocolate Old Fashioned, made with 18 Year Old Viking Pride, would be just perfect. Not going to be together? No problem – you could always package up the ingredients and send them to your Mum along with the recipe, then have fun with some virtual mixology online. Don’t forget to check out our other special serves including Warm Your Soul and Salted Honey Old Fashioned, both created with 12 Year Old Viking Honour.
Made for each other?
Recently we’ve been sharing lots of ideas about pairing Highland Park with food and using our whisky in recipes. If you’re able to enjoy a celebratory meal with your Mum, you’ll find that the news and events section of our website is full of creative ideas from a savoury pasta dish to sweet treats such as Panna Cotta - or you could make our Tiffin with a Viking Twist the day before Mother’s Day and pop it in a little gift box. For a virtual feast, why not agree to assemble some pairing ingredients and enjoy cheese, whisky and delicious nibbles while you chat online?
Wrap up, head out!
If you’re able to meet up with your mum outside, wouldn’t it be lovely plan an urban walk, a country ramble or a beach stroll together? You could surprise her with a gift of our fabulous outerwear or perhaps a hunter’s flask, filled with some of our luxury hot chocolate (we’d recommend leaving out the marshmallows though – they don’t travel well!). And, if you live in Orkney, don’t forget to check out our team’s favourite island walks for inspiration or book a distillery tour with us and let you mum choose a gift from our distillery shop.
