Although the weather outside is starting to tempt us with cosy nights in, Glenmorangie is giving us six reasons to toss a scarf on and head out to enjoy some fine single malt scotch.

World Whisky Day is just around the corner (Saturday, May 18) and the Scottish distillery has partnered with six cocktail bars across Melbourne to celebrate. Each venue will revisit the classic highball — Glenmorangie Original 10 mixed with soda, tonic or ginger ale and fresh orange juice – and rework it, creating reinventions of the classic with a distinct flair. These cocktails will be shaken and stirred until the end of the month because let's face it, one day just isn't enough to applaud this fine spirit.

Warm your belly up at Arlechin with a Pink Possum, which features fig, thyme and cabernet shrub, or enjoy the Tarlogie Tang, with notes of fino sherry and apple pulp soda, at Boilermaker House. Meanwhile, Attic at Black Pearl has concocted a spiced coconut, honey and vinegar number — The Pictish Highball — and Williamstown's Sebastian Beach Grill & Bar focuses on peach, fig and cinnamon flavours with its Basque on the Peach.

If you're feeling adventurous with your whisky sampling, head to Trinket Bar and try the nutty The Danseur, made with peanut butter, hazelnut oil and orangeade. Or, to get nice and toasty, sip on Iki-Jime's Highball 16, featuring Glenmorangie 10 mixed with the house soda of toasted barley, chamomile, orange zest and leatherwood honey.
