Lyre’s has unveiled a non-alcoholic Scotch-style ‘whisky’ dubbed Highland Malt. The new offering has been introduced in Singapore.
Highland Malt will join Lyre’s range of 16 non-alcoholic ‘spirits’ and five ready-to-drink (RTD) canned cocktails.
“While Lyre’s spirits are true to taste, they have their own distinction as a premium non-alcoholic beverage, and therefore understanding the popularity of whisky, we wanted to deliver the same delicious taste but with a difference,” said David Murphy, Lyre’s flavor architect. “Whether served neat or in mixers, whisky is a firm favourite for many around the world and understanding this, we’ve worked tirelessly to study the aromas and tastes that whisky fans most enjoy to deliver the Highland Malt.
“People who enjoy the taste of a great whisky can experience our non-alcoholic version in occasions where it would otherwise be just featuring the alcoholic equivalents – it extends the occasion to more people more often.”
Lyre’s Highland Malt features oak tannin and nutty grain characters. There’s a subtle smoke, which contributes to a lift in the palate and balances the length which is firm and full.
The new offering is Lyre’s first product designed to be consumed on ice or neat as well as in classic cocktails. The classic whisky highball with soda is a signature serve and the firm finish stands up well to stirred down classics like the Rob Roy.
Highland Malt is now available to purchase in Singapore for S$59 ($42 USD) online through the brand’s website and will also be available from select outlets in Singapore later this year.
Last month, Lyre’s launched the world’s first non-alcoholic baijiu.
Recently, Lyre’s stirred up some classic non-alcoholic gin cocktails for us made with their London Dry Spirit.
