Here you will find our selection of wonderful drinks, mixers and syrups/cordials. Included here is our range of Vintage Cocktails from the Handmade Cocktail company – cocktails which are mixed and allowed to ‘marry’ in the bottle – the result is a superb set of perfectly mixed cocktails which just require ice and a garnish to serve!
Next up, we have a sterling range of vermouths. Popular examples of these wine-based, herb-and-spice-flavoured concoctions include the classic Martini, Noilly Prat and Dubonnet. Vermouths are the cornerstone of many of the world’s best-loved cocktails (Manhattans and Martinis being supreme examples).
A case of 1724 Tonic Water, a premium mixer made with quinine picked 1,724 metres above sea level on the Inca Trail. This isn't just an odd fact for you, this is where quinine is said to originate. Featuring the right amount of bitterness and a hint of sweetness along the way, which pairs very handsomely with all manner of gins and vodkas.
Each case contains 24 200ml bottles of 1724 Tonic Water.
An incredibly good red vermouth which was originally used to make the Martinez (the grandfather of the martini). Each bottle of Antica Formula is individually numbered, and it really does make a great Manhattan, as well as being an excellent digestif.
An ale with a difference. Ola Dubh is ale that was aged in whisky casks, and casks from Highland Park no less. This particular ale was aged in casks which previously held 18 year old Highland Park! Each is labeled with bottle number and date, as well as being signed by the head brewer and the "master of wood".
A French aperitif made with wine from the south of France. This is flavoured with herbs, spices and quinine and is aged in oak for three years.
This Ola Dubh is a very good quality ale matured in casks whisky previously held 16 year old Highland Park, the result is a fabulous drink.
A very special ale from the Harviestoun Brewery, this was aged in casks which previously held Highland Park 12 year old! Now that's an ale! Each bottle is numbered and dated and is signed by both the head brewer and the master of wood. What must life be like for a master of wood?
A classic red vermouth. The balance is superb and there is a lovely herbal flavour. A great addition to many a cocktail.
Highgate gin distillers Sacred Spirits use English wine flavoured with thyme and Somerset wormwood amongst other botanicals to create this rich, spicy vermouth with an 'English herb garden' character.
An Italian aperitif, Cocchi Americano has become a popular alternative to the original Kina Lillet. Importantly, it has more quinine bitterness than Lillet Blanc although it is also more spiced in character. The Vesper from Ian Fleming's 1953 book, Casino Royal and the Corpse Reviver #2 are popular cocktails that come to life with Cocchi Americano.
A white wine based vermouth, made with two wines which are matured separately for a year before a secret selection of herbs and spices are macerated for three weeks, then carefully extracted. Afterwards, the wine is allowed to rest for six more weeks. Also, if you say the name phonetically it makes for a good insult.
