Winter wonderland pop-up for Magnum and Cold Town House


Scotland’s world champion curling team, Team Mouat, have launched the new winter wonderland experience on the rooftop bar of Edinburgh’s Cold Town House, with brand partners Magnum –  the country’s only Scotch malt whisky cream liqueur brand.

The Magnum Apres Ski Terrace festive pop-up runs throughout Christmas and Hogmanay and along with views of Edinburgh Castle it features hundreds of Christmas lights which illuminate a specially crafted Santa sleigh, giant Magnum bottle Christmas tree, as well as fur blankets and cushions to keep people cosy on dark winter evenings.

The team of mixologists at Cold Town House have also created a choice of three Christmas cocktails with Magnum, including ‘The Night Before Christmas’, ‘Polar Express’ and ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’.

Since winning the World and European Championships earlier this year, Team Mouat have been the official faces of the Magnum bran. Led by Edinburgh-born skipper, Bruce Mouat, the team of four men also took home the silver medal at the 2022 Olympics in Beijing.

Magnum Director Lee Schofield said, “We’re so excited to have Team Mouat launch our new Apres Ski Terrace at Edinburgh’s Cold Town this Christmas. They’re an amazing group of guys who really embody the spirit of our nation and we think they’re the perfect ambassadors to represent the Magnum brand.

“We’ve gone the extra mile to create a magical winter wonderland for people to celebrate the festive season with family and friends. As well as getting the chance to enjoy Magnum in the stunning backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, hundreds of sparkling Christmas lights will illuminate our special Santa sleigh and giant Magnum bottle Christmas tree to help people capture those perfect moments on Instagram or TikTok.”

Bruce Mouat, added, “As Scotland’s world champion curling team, we’re proud to be working with a true Scottish brand like Magnum this festive season.

“Edinburgh is my hometown, so there’s no better place to be taking Christmas to new heights in the heart of Scotland’s capital city than the rooftop bar of Cold Town House with its fantastic views of Edinburgh Castle.

“We’d like to thank all our fans for their continued support and wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.”

The innovative drinks brand is now the only cream liqueur exclusively crafted and bottled in Scotland using single malt Scotch whisky from Speyside, so people are able to raise a glass to the nation’s only Baileys rival.

The new ‘Magnum Apres Ski Terrace’ is now open seven days a week from 11.30am until late on the rooftop bar of Cold Town House, 4 Grassmarket.
