A classic example of bitters, one of the few that survived US Prohibition, flavours of orange and geranium are most prominent followed by spicy cardamom and coriander. Shake into your Martini, your Manhattan or even a classic Champagne cocktail.
The strawberries used in Funkin’s succulent syrup have been carefully selected to ensure the most enjoyable, seasonal strawberry flavour. Through testing over 50 varieties of fruit Funkin have developed a strawberry puree which is sweet, fragrant and captures the pure essence of the strawberry. Use it in your daiquiris, your candy sweet cocktails or even an ice cool frozen strawberry Margarita. A real taste of the summer you don’t want to miss.
Named for its place of conception, Portobello London Dry Gin No. 171 is a classic London gin with all the characteristics of a premium product. Floral notes pour out of the bottle on opening with lavender and camphor at the forefront. Parma violet sweetness follows and on tasting you’ll get the first hint of juniper. The citrus notes often found in abundance in other gins are subdued but their essence is in the background and it’s a little spicier than your average gin, without being overwhelming. Wonderful for your favourite sling.
