MASTER OF MALT announce perfect summer tipple

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.
