Upstairs bar in Inverness is raising spirits
WHISKY flowed to celebrate the launch of a new city bar specialising in our national drink, among other spirits, Angels’ Share.
Named after the portion of whisky lost to evaporation as it matures, the bar is the latest venture from local businessman Scott Murray of Cru Holdings, and sits above his Ness Walk streak and seafood restaurant Prime.
It joins a portfolio of businesses that includes Bar One, Scotch & Rye, The Keg and Dows Bar, as well as High Spirits Bar in Falkirk and travel agency Inverness Travel.
Angels’ Share is being described by Cru Holdings as a cosy hideaway where customers can discover an extensive range of whisky and gin, as well as sample cocktails made by some of the best local “mixologists”.
The bar is also intended to provide a platform for local spirit makers, both of whisky and gin.
The new venue has already attracted praise on social media, with early patrons commenting on its relaxed atmosphere, choice of drinks, knowledgeable and friendly staff and “the best views in Inverness, looking straight out to the castle”.
“I’m excited to launch Angels’ Share and cater for a growing hospitality industry in Inverness,” Mr Murray said.
“Angels’ Share will specialise in quality whisky, gin and cocktails, served with the same warm hospitality we have become renowned for at Cru Holdings.
“Following the success of Prime and our customers’ response to the high-quality local produce we use, we were keen to add a bar that showcases local spirits as well as some from further afield, and our speciality cocktails in a sophisticated but welcoming atmosphere. Hidden away above Prime, I hope customers will enjoy an escape from the everyday and find new drinks they love.”
