Highland Imports welcomed a new whiskey addition, Glyph, with a launch party hosted at Elm City Social in New Haven on September 10. Glyph, billed as “the world’s first molecular whiskey,” is made overnight using the “building blocks of whiskey”: pure flavor and aroma molecules, or notes, extracted from plants, fruits and yeasts, and, unlike conventional whiskey, with no aging or barreling. Created by Endless West, a self-described team of “designers, dropouts, scientists and sommeliers,” the new whiskey was presented to the Connecticut trade via an education, tasting and cocktail-making session. After the trade session, Glyph was showcased at a consumer-centric evening of food, drink and a live performance by local New Haven musician Ian Biggs, also at Elm City Social.
