The team behind Scotch, the whisky bar at The Balmoral in Edinburgh (pictured), have opened a pop-up in London’s Mayfair.

It has taken over the Library room next to the Donovan Bar at Brown’s Hotel for two weeks from today until February 8, offering 40 different whiskies.

The pop-up is a tribute to Scotch, which opened in 2013 at The Balmoral, stocking over 400 different whiskies. Both the Edinburgh hotel and Brown’s are operated by Rocco Forte.

The Mayfair pop-up is run in partnership with Glenmorangie and features the newly launched sixth limited release in its Private Edition series, Tùsail, which was launched at a private preview at the bar last night.

The bar will offer five other Glenmorangie expressions: Original, Signet, 18 Year Old, 25 Year Old and the rare Pride 1978, which will be sold at £400 a dram.

Whiskies from other distilleries will also be available, covering the regions of Speyside, Islay, the Islands, the Highlands and the Lowlands, with a variety of blends, malts and vintages dating back to 1940.

The bar is being run by Fraser Robson, one of the highly trained team of whisky ambassadors that work at Scotch in Edinburgh. It will be open every day from 6pm to 1am.
