Can you imagine lazing on a summer’s afternoon without your Pimm’s in hand? We think not so let’s raise a toast to Pimm’s No 1 the classic English summer drink. Traditionally served 3:1 with freshly made lemonade, cucumber, mint and strawberries, Pimm’s has a rich and fruity taste which simply screams summer. English through and through Pimm’s No 1 was invented in the City of London and spicy undertones lift the naturally fruitiness even further.
With its history in apothecary Peychaud’s Bitters has a strong authentic flavour which was originally dispensed as a medicinal tonic. Of course, the signature cocktail with Peychaud’s is the Sazerac but the subtle yet spicy flavour makes it a great choice for a wide range of cocktails from Old Fashioned to Whiskey Sours and the overriding flavour in each sip is aromatic cloves. Known as a great all-rounder Peychaud’s can be mixed with virtually anything to create a complex flavour profile.
An original family recipe lives on in Hayman’s Old Tom. Clean and fresh in its flavours with a history dating back to the 1860s, Old Tom uses the same ten botanicals it always has. It stands out from others in the Hayman’s collection due to the intensity of the botanicals within and the addition of sugar for sweetness. Juniper and orange zest work together to introduce the drink and by the end you’ll be enjoying cracked black pepper in a clean, long finish.
Classic Russian style of vodka. Lemon follows peppr, followers faint grain notes. The finish is medium bodied and has white pepper and lemon rind tang. Great stuff that never lets you down. Serve from freezer for best results.
