Made using premium-strength gin, distilled in England in copper pot-stills, this Negroni also uses premium Sweet Vermouth, and equal measures of Campari and Aperol for a balanced flavour. Mixed in ultra-small batches by those handsome devils at the Handmade Cocktail Company.
The concept of the ‘Vintage Cocktail’ range is simple – you get all the ingredients for a superb cocktail pre-mixed, all you have to do is pour it over ice, stir, then strain off into your glass and garnish (in this instance with a healthy slice of fresh orange). Each bottle carries a stamp showing its year of manufacture.
By pre-mixing the Gin with the vermouth and bitters, the danger of your Negroni being ruined by fusty or tired vermouth becomes a thing of the past. The interaction between the Vermouth and the other ingredients over time really smooths out the flavour of the drink, providing an altogether more rounded experience.
