As the world’s most awarded single malt scotch whisky, Glenfiddich has always led with a pioneering spirit. It was this spirit that inspired the creation of The Independent Bar, a one-of-a-kind pop-up whisky bar opening in Johannesburg this month. Open for only three nights a week over the next three months, The Independent Bar is a by-invite-only venue offering a unique space for Glenfiddich drinkers to enjoy a whisky bar experience like no other.
Visually, the interior design team from Design Republic has brought the pioneering spirit of Glenfiddich to life with an innovative design that seamlessly and strikingly juxtaposes industrial materials and wirework with soft natural fabrics and luscious velvets.
The Independent Bar’s resident barmen, Molecular, will be showcasing their experimental mixology with a host of exciting and innovative Glenfiddich cocktails prepared for the venue.
Upon arrival at The Independent Bar, guests will be treated to a never-before-seen voice tracking installation purpose built for the space. The installation tracks the biometric data of a guest’s voice to create a unique Glenfiddich cocktail that is specific to each guest.
We’ll be covering the unveiling of the bar as well as giving you a glimpse into this innovative space. Keep an eye on our socials and on this page for exclusive written and video content and all the must-know information from Glenfiddich’s pioneering whisky experiment.
