Here’s a DISCLAIMER to all those who’s reading this post-We are in no way promoting any alcohol or drinking alcohol here. It’s all about the experience we had at the event #LoveScotch. Keep in mind the legal drinking age in India is 21 and make sure you drink responsibly and not drive after consumption of alcohol.
Anyway, now that’s all cleared, let’s come back to the post. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that Hitesh from team #thattripeurbanlife was at the #LoveScotch event at Hotel Shangri-La Bangalore marking the World Whisky Day. Well, to be honest, this very day even existed was a new thing to us but now that it’s known, we are so eagerly waiting for next year to come. We got to party and celebrate the day with some well known celebrities like the Canadian model Coco Rocha who is also the Global Brand Ambassador for #LoveScotch, the well known Actor Randeep Hooda, Designer, actor and TV presenter, Mandira Bedi, our very own Bengaluru boy Dino Morea who is also a Bollywood actor and former model and Rajiv Mehta, CEO, Arvind Fashion Brands & Arvind Sports Lifestyle.
The party started with a chance to meet all these wonderful celebs and talk to them about their favorite drink. While speaking to Coco Rocha, we got to know a lot about how she prefers her drinks, her favorite cocktails and a lot more. Here’s a small interview we took with Coco….
Q:Your favorite drink?
A: I love JOHNNIE WALKER a lot.
Q: Do you like cocktails? If yes, which is your favorite?
A: I love cocktails and my favorite is Scotch with ginger ale.
Q: Any memory you would like to tell us about Scotch?
A: My love of scotch all started with my dad’s collection of Scotch back at his house.
We got a chance to take a lot of selfies with her too. Hitesh was glad, that he could reach upto her height and get a picture clicked with Coco. Haha! Randeep Hooda and Dino Morea made sure to keep the party all fun and exciting by pulling others legs and being all humorous. When asked, Randeep likes to drink Black Dog and also likes Black and Blue label and said, “Celebrating World Whisky Day instantly takes me back to all the times that I spent with my dad, discussing my career over a glass of Black Dog. He always enjoys his Scotch on the rocks, while I have grown to enjoy it in different ways. And this is exactly why #LoveScotch resonated with me.”
Dino prefers Black and White with Whisky Sour being an all-time favourite. Mandira stated she likes her single malt whisky with two cubes of ice on the rocks and mentioned, “Each of us have a prized possession and for me it’s my bottle of Singleton that adorns my home bar till today. I enjoy my Scotch especially when celebrating special moments with friends and family.”
According to Coco, “A bottle of scotch is the best gift to be give to your friends and they will like you more. Celebrating World Whisky Day in India has been an absolute pleasure. I am a whisky lover myself who enjoys her Johnnie Walker Black Label and for me to get the opportunity to meet the Scotch enthusiasts of Bangalore was a great experience. We are officially introducing #LoveScotch to India and I’m sure this will create a movement that celebrates a global love affair with the world’s favourite whisky – Scotch.”
When Hitesh introduced our blog to Randeep, he was quite impressed with the name” That trip-e urban life” and in fact cracked some jokes on it too. During the panel talk, Dino Morea mentioned that he started to drink Scotch only at the age of 27-28 when 2 of his friends conversing about it. Mandira Bedi also mentioned that she had scotch the first time with her dad in Punjab. After the panel talk, Dino and Randeep headed over to the cocktail making session where both of them created some wonderful cocktails. We had a chance to have Highland sour which tasted amazing.
Next stop was at UB city where all of us had a chance to watch Mandira make few cocktails at Skyye Bar and Coco a few at Sanchos. The entire experience of meeting all these celebs was incredible for team #thattripeurbanlife and make sure to follows us on our social medias to get all the latest updates about events, fashion tips and many more.
