England’s new breed of distillers are producing everything from vodkas that rival Eastern Europe’s finest to a whisky that would be welcomed by even the most discerning of Scottish dram-seekers. Want to experience this year’s cleanest, freshest tasting booze? In early spring, birch trees from Nordic forests are tapped for their sap, which is frozen before being transported to an English copper still and turned into a very special spirit.
With top-notch mixologists turning their hands to pre-bottled cocktails, we’re now able to enjoy expertly created drinks in the comfort of our own home. Ideal for when you want to spend more time with your guests, and less time measuring, shaking and stirring, these pre-prepared cocktails only require a clean glass. All cocktails benefitted from being served ice cold, whether that was by pouring over ice or given a quick shake before drinking.
