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 Sydney to celebrate. But, rather than just honouring the one day, these bars will be continuing the celebrations for the entire month, with each venue reworking the classic highball — Glenmorangie Original 10 with soda, tonic or ginger ale and a touch of fresh orange juice.

Forget the cold altogether and pretend the warm weather is still around with the strong coconut flavours of Duke of Clarence's twist on a pina colada, the Dampier Highball, or with Maybe Sammy's 1950s Vegas-inspired High Fashionable, with lemon, banana and salted coconut soda.

If you're in the city, Esquire Drink + Dine will be serving up a simple but calming highball with Glenmorangie, white grapefruit and chamomile. Meanwhile, Darlinghurst cocktail bar, Mister Pocket, will be honouring the classic whisky cocktail with its Long Neck Highball, which heroes grapefruit and agave.

Alternatively, take a seat on Barangaroo House's Smoke rooftop and sip on its Aussie-centric tipple, The Kinsmen, with macadamia, wattle, finger lime and lemon myrtle. For something a little more exotic, Kittyhawk's Japanese-inspired Nomihoudai will hit the spot with its black plum, houjicha (Japanese green tea) syrup and shiso flavour profile.
