|Orange Retro Funk Night by Glenmorangie at The Pool, Jalang Ampang|
If “funk” could be associated with a color, it would definitely be a bright shade of tangerine as Glenmorangie took an inspired leap from the “orange” in its name to color The Hill’s second outlet, The Pool, in an arresting shade of citrus! Taking the purveyor of single malt whisky out of gentlemen’s clubs and onto the glass countertops of The Pool, Glenmorangie turned up the retro-funk vibes at Kuala Lumpur’s newest nightspot along Jalan Ampang at its very first Orange Night party on last Friday!

Glenmorangie Orange Night guests were treated to host Will Quah’s witticisms and “Unnecessarily Well Made” questions, which saw the audience winning exclusive Glenmorangie gifts and upping their knowledge of what it takes to make a barrel of Glenmorangie single malt scotch whisky.

Do you know what is Glenmorangie?
Glenmorangie is, quite simply, the most delicious and complex single malt whisky in the world. Its multi-layered aromas and kaleidoscopic flavours stimulate the senses and entice the palate. This beautifully seductive spirit originates in the heart of the Scottish Highlands where, at the Glenmorangie distillery, it is first captured by elegant, swan necked stills that are the tallest in Scotland, and then expertly matured in the finest oak casks. Undeniably the most complex and perfectly balanced single malt, every sip of Glenmorangie offers a heady and alluring experience in taste, texture and aroma~
To add extra festive atmosphere, female models were “dressed” in retro-inspired body paint and lots of guests had a lively time getting their photos snapped with them!

Stand up comedian Kuah Jenhan bagged the Best Dressed Award with his orange ensemble, while emcee Will Quah and actor Gary Wong were spotted filling their glasses from the Glenmorangie Zest Serve, a sculptural serving stand which creates an infusion of orange zest with Glenmorangie whisky.

As the Glenmorangie Zest Serve further revealed Glenmorangie single malt scotch whisky’s layers of flavour, guests were kept on their feet by the groovy mix of Daikanyama’s resident DJ and the backbeat of Deer Society – Alex Asquared.

With a steady flow of house and indie dance laced with a dash of 80’s synth from the decks, the Glenmorangie ‘Orange Night’ was a tasteful mix of the refined, hedonistic enjoyment of single malt whisky balanced with a healthy serving of witty retro funk, which proved to be infectious all night long!
