Do you want to do something a bit different for your forthcoming party or event? Something a bit more extravagant? Bigger perhaps? If so, we can help! We appreciate that many of our clients have a budget for their event. They want cocktails to add that touch of glamour to their party, but without remortgaging the house. All fine.
But it may be that you want that something different, that bit of ultimate indulgence. Something for you and your friends to enjoy in the moment, comment on and remember long after the event.
We have access to some lovely products. Some premium quality spirit and liqueur ingredients, and some which are very rare. Such as our Chase gooseberry vodka, a limited edition no longer available. Or malt whiskies from now closed down distilleries. Or the stonking 150 proof dark rum not available in the UK – but a necessary ingredient in the classic Zombie.
Admittedly many of these base ingredients are upwards of £40 a bottle – but if you want something that is a real talking point, and a range of products that ooze class, then we have something for you. Away from the Smirnoff, Gordons, Bells and Bacardi.
We believe in offering quality cocktails for all of our clients. That’s why we always supply all the drink. All our cocktails are full strength too. In other words made the way they were intended. Not poured over an oversized glass of ice. It may be big, but it’s certainly not clever. Some cocktails need ice – maybe for part of the look, such as in the Mojito, or for dilution such as in your Whiskey Sour or our stonking St. Louis combining French cognac, Southern Comfort, peach syrup and peach bitters. But for the rest, the ice should stay in the shaker, so you get the full flavour right to the end of your cocktail.
We also enjoy making new cocktails, brand new creations. If you want to push the boundaries we’re keen to offer you some great flavours. More than 100 new creations at the last count. And that’s only the ones which we think are good. All entrepreneurial efforts result in a few duds after all.
Frequently we spend time in the apothecary deconstructing classic cocktails with the aim of improving on them. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t! Share our successful discoveries with us at your party or function. We also like experimenting with wild and wacky flavours. Our Black Jack is based on the classic Black Russian but adds a hint of liquorice to give an added depth of chocolately flavour. Yes really! Another new creation replicates the flavour of rum and raisin ice-cream in a cocktail glass. The Tzatziki Martini with cucumber, plus our cardamom styled Martini. If you like the idea of creative cocktails find out what our head mixologist has been up to on his mixology blog.
Flying the flag for Britain
Britain is in a very innovative groove at the moment. We know – we study the form. Chase vodkas, Sipsmith gins, Nyetimber sparkling wine, Kamm and Sons English aperitif and Bold Spirits London’s cherry spirit are all part of the new wave and make excellent cocktails. We know, we’ve made them.
If having a range of exotic, and yet patriotic cocktails to entice and stimulate your guests is appealing, talk to us. We’d love to introduce you to this new exciting world of modern cocktails.
New formulations to fit the event. Our Strawberry Martini featuring strawberry vermouth, the as yet unnamed champagne cocktail featuring Absolut orient apple vodka, King’s ginger liqueur and sparkly wine. Or the gorgeously creamy Nyetimber premier cuvee wine with Chase Marmalade vodka. A great combination.
