Known as a great all-rounder Peychaud’s can be mixed with virtually anything to create a complex flavour profile.
The ‘most unusual gin’ on the market, Hendrick’s is a fine Scottish gin which evokes rose gardens and quintessentially British cucumber sandwiches.

Nothing says Caribbean quite like the sweet taste of the coconut and with Malibu not only do you get that, you also get the sweet, heady taste of premium white rum.

The coconut notes blend wonderfully with a sweet molasses flavour which delivers an almost dairy-like flavour, inviting and essential for the most exotic Caribbean cocktails.
