With all of us spending more time indoors, there’s the rise of the home-bar, or at the very least, we’re expanding our drinks cabinets. So if you need some drinks inspiration, here are some recently-launched spirits that’ll surely perk you up.
A new offering by the Bacardi-owned Bombay Sapphire – The Bombay Bramble, this spirit has it all – flavors of blackberry and raspberry, and there’s a deep crimson color that comes with it too. With a real fruit infusion, it makes the ideal spirit for the classic cocktail, The Bramble.
Jaffa Cake Gin
Jaffa Cake Gin, bringing together our two loves of Jaffa Cakes and gin, does it get any better? The gin is distilled with oranges, fresh orange peel, cocoa powder, and yes, real Jaffa cakes. The result is just as you’d expect – moreish Jaffa cake but with a distinctive base of crisp juniper so ticks all the boxes. And even better, it makes for a tasty take on a classic Negroni.
DEWAR’S Ilegal Smooth
DEWAR’S Scotch Whiskey is the world’s most awarded blended Scotch whiskey, and now they have the DEWAR’S Ilegal Smooth. Expect DEWAR’S 8-year-old double-aged Blended Scotch whiskey finished in Ilegal Mezcal casks for a pleasant and unexpectedly sweet, smooth blend with a wisp of smoke.
Gordon’s White Peach Distilled Gin
The Gordon’s White Peach Distilled Gin is the perfect addition to your drinks cabinet for summer climes, this gin “naturally mellow flavor of white peach” and appeals to those who both love gin and have a sweet tooth. It’s limited edition too, so get it before it’s gone!
Verano Passion Fruit Gin
Have a penchant for passion fruit? If so, this is the gin to try. Brought to you by William Grant & Sons’ Verano gin, it’s juicy, it’s sweet, and it’s fruity. It’s recommended to serve with classic tonic water or lemonade, and garnish with passion fruit.
