“No ice. No stirrer. No glass. We’re redefining how whisky can be enjoyed … #noglassrequired,” Glenlivet tweeted as part of its “Capsule Collection” roll-out, timed with London’s Cocktail Week.
People have been enjoying Scotch whiskey for hundreds of years. Obviously, it is in a glass and often served on the rocks. Now, The Glenlivet, one of the world’s top producers, offers this interesting twist.
“A first of its kind for a spirit brand, the edible capsules are 23ml in size, fully biodegradable and provide the perfect flavor-explosion experience,” says the Scottish brand’s promotional materials. “Enjoying them is simple, the capsules are popped in the mouth for an instant burst of flavour, and the capsule is simply swallowed.
The limited-production pods are being served during London’s celebration of cocktail innovations, which run through October 13, 2019. The limited availability ought to keep most people from confusing them with Tide PODS. Sadly, we are lucky for doing so. As for now these capsules are not being sold in the United States yet, but it seems like we might make the perfect next destination.
