Specially Crafted Cocktails for Halloween Day from Diageo’s Black & White Whisky

November 1, 2016

This Halloween day celebrations heated up with spooky Black & White Scotch Whisky Cocktails. Halloween party is never complete without scary and lip smacking cocktails. On the eve of the weekend, to grace the Halloween occasion, it was a great party thrown by United Spirits Limited at Hoppipola.


Sebastian Krishnan, the brand ambassador of United Spirits demonstrated how to prepare some funny cocktails for the Halloween. The cocktails included Black & White Witch tasted awesome. This drink was followed by chilling Vampire’s drink, a perfect one to greet the Halloween; it will be a great fun to savor these drinks that signify the occasion.


The next drink was a classic old fashioned twist of Zomb’ tea which tasted out of the world. The ambience was all set with Pumpkin Spooky and devil’s horns to modify the place into a perfect haunted land. With all of these the last drink for the evening, Black & White goblin arrived. I enjoyed all of these drinks thoroughly and was craving for more.


Along with the drinks, we got bit of an insight about the history of Black & White, one of the finest Scotch whisky. United Spirits Limited (USL) was established in 1826. The company is well-established and sells 120 mn cases annually.

USL now is a subsidiary of Diageo plc which is a global leader in beverage alcohol and has a great collection of outstanding brands. USL also is the largest Indian spirits company. Some of its products include Royal Challenge, Antiquity, and McDowell’s No.1. IMFL Whisky, Scotch whisky, rum, brandy, wine, gin, and vodka are produced and sold by USL.


Some of the iconic brands such as VAT 69, Smirnoff, Ciroc, and Johnnie Walker of Diageo are imported, manufactured and sold in India by USL. For a better brand choice, one can definitely go for it as the company has traversed a valuable journey to reach this destination.

Overall, the Halloween party thought me a lot of new variety recipes that I totally loved. A big cheer to Diageo plc, USL, and all the cocktails!
