ECLECTIC, PULSATING VIBES BY GLENMORANGIE – Party Or What!
In the spirit of unorthodox funk and quirky revelry, Glenmorangie pulled out all the stops at possibly the biggest Orange-themed bash of the year – Orange Eclectic Pulse at STAGE in Avenue K last week. Armed with the unwavering, time-tested mandate of bringing “Unnecessarily Well Made” experiences, purveyors of Scotland’s favourite single malt whisky Glenmorangie delivered on yet another stellar exploit that combined the hedonistic enjoyment of single malt whisky, with all the right ingredients of a liberating, Saturday night party.
The STAGE was set and generously splashed in Orange to create an eccentric vibe, which quickly thickened with excitement and anticipation as guests streamed in donning their best Orange ensembles. As the crowd grew, three gorgeous Glenmorangie ambassadors dressed almost exclusively in Orange body paint were let loose to roam the floor, causing a pleasant stir. Carrying with them a sultry presence, the body painted girls stopped to have photos taken with guests upon requests, and prints were made available as mementos for the night.
As the party kicked off with a steady flow of eclectic beats skilfully orchestrated by house DJs Funkzu and Monkey, guests indulged in a unique way of enjoying Glenmorangie single malt whisky through the Glenmorangie Zest Serve – a familiar highlight at Glenmorangie Orange-themed parties. The curious looking serving contraption funnels Glenmorangie whisky through slivers of orange peel, infusing delicious tangerine to complement the notes of vanilla and citrus zest of the Glenmorangie Original – backbone of the Glenmorangie range.
At the stroke of midnight, Terry T took the stage again to do what he did best – pumping up the excitement levels for the next act. The crowd was up on their feet to welcome the featured guest of Orange Eclectic Pulse – Hong Kong’s most in-demand DJ, Miss Yellow. A familiar face in the Hong Kong entertainment scene, and immensely popular from behind the decks, Miss Yellow spared no reprieve from the start of her set.
The STAGE floor resembled a kaleidoscope of colours with bursts of orange, with some guests being more sporting with the Orange dress theme than others. Enter again emcee Terry T, who rounded up two guests who were quick enough to show up on stage wearing something orange, and each returned to their tables clutching a bottle of Glenmorangie Original; and the party continued. The rest of the night was a flurry of euphoria, as guests danced away to yet another “Unnecessarily Well Made” party, specially put together by Glenmorangie.
Going out of the way has been the apparent trait in all the Glenmorangie Orange-themed events thus far, and this spirit stems from Glenmorangie’s tried and tested “Unnecessarily Well Made” identity; from using the tallest distillery stills in Scotland, to sourcing for the finest white oaks from Missouri for maturation casks that are only ever used twice.
Stay tuned for the next big Orange party by Glenmorangie that is set to bring the orange fever to Firefly in KK Times Square, Kota Kinabalu this October. Watch this space for regular updates: www.facebook.com/GlenmorangieMalaysia.
