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.
Bursting with flavour and welcome acidity, passion fruit’s flamboyant flavour gained it a reputation as an aphrodisiac. Whether you’re hoping to have your wicked way or not Funkin Passion Fruit puree is brought over from Ecuador and has a delicate balance of both vibrant fruitiness and biting acidity. It’s an absolute must if you’re attempting a Pornstar Martini but the flavour is powerful and enticing enough to work with almost any partner.
In its apothecary style bottle we won’t blame you if you claim each sip of Monkey 47 Sloe Gin is ‘purely medicinal’. A stunning gin which uses 47 botanicals and then combined this unusual and inviting flavour with the sweet flavour of sloe berries. Monkey 47 uses wild grown, hand-picked sloe berries from the Black Forest in Germany and each single batch is distilled over a three month period to guarantee a perfectly blended taste. A very rare and exclusive sloe gin, get it before it’s gone.
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.
Try something different from your regular Tanqueray and tonic. Exotic and packed full of flavour Tanqueray Rangpur brings in the flavours of ginger, bay leaves and intensely fruity rangpur limes. Sweetness leads this extraordinary gin, with lime juice and zest marrying wonderfully with traditional juniper. Lime continues to take centre stage but ginger heat and a touch of pepper help to give a welcome bitter edge to think drink. Perfect for a refreshing gimlet.
Nutty Sri Lankan arrack is a distinctively flavoured drink which utilises the flavours of some of the country’s most naturally occurring plants. The sap of the coconut flower stem forms the key ingredient of the drink and is combined with a range of hand-picked botanicals and distilled in a traditional column still. The result is a flavour which is reminiscent of diluted whisky with recognisable nutty and malted notes and the added fruitiness of dried strawberry. A truly unique flavour.
