MASTER OF MALT announce perfect summer tipple
MASTER OF MALT announce perfect summer tipple
23 August 2012

Online retailers Master of Malt are proud to announce the launch of Professor Cornelius Ampleforth’s Summer Fruit Cup – a classic, refreshing English concoction based on a recipe of strawberries, cucumber, orange and mint with a blend of fine wines, spirits, herbs and spices. The result is the perfect summertime quaff.

To create this quintessentially English drink, Professor Cornelius Ampleforth uses a vacuum still in which he carefully re-distils top quality wheat spirit infused with cucumber, strawberry, orange and mint. The use of a vacuum still allows distillation to take place at room temperature, retaining freshness and complexity.

Each bottle is wrapped in crinkled brown paper, with a string-wound neck and a handsome black wax seal. The bottles are adorned with a print of a hand-drawn illustration depicting a refreshing bowl of summer fruit-punch and three jolly Victorian gentlemen.

To serve a perfect Summer Fruit Cup half-fill a tall glass with ice, sliced cucumber and orange, quartered strawberries and a lightly bruised sprig of fresh mint. Then combine one part Summer Fruit Cup with two parts lemonade and enjoy!

Tasting notes:

Nose: Huge depth and richness in the initial nose, spicy with notes of Caramelised Apricot, Chocolate and Marmalade. A huge secondary whack from the cold-distilled botanicals - Cucumber is the primary component, but mint, orange and sweet luscious strawberry all make an appearance.

Palate: Extraordinary intensity, but made fresh and accessible by the cold-distilled botanicals. The Strawberry is particularly prominent, but the mint freshness is omnipresent.

Finish: Long and luscious with the Mint, Strawberry, Orange peel bitterness and mint continuing to shine.
