Get on the Southside with Cardiff Dry Gin

Get on the Southside with Cardiff Dry Gin

Cardiff Dry Gin has really been one of the more popular gins in the Eccentric Spirits range. Since we launched the collection last year, we’ve noticed its popularity. It’s a citrussy gin which is always a winner – who doesn’t like a slice of juicy lemon or lime in their gin? The botanicals in the gin provides a great base for other flavours. Like all the gins in the Eccentric range, Cardiff Dry is perfect for cocktails. This serve, the Cucumber Southside, has been created especially for Cardiff Dry.

Pink gin cocktails with Pembrokeshire Pinky

Pink gin cocktails with Pembrokeshire Pinky

Pink gin cocktails – is anything more likely to lift the spirits when they might otherwise be flagging?

In the pink gin cocktails that we bring you here for Pembrokeshire Pinky, we add sweetness in the form of a syrup. Rhubarb and vanilla syrup is something that’s pretty straightforward to knock up at home....

A cask-aged gin cocktail brings complexity and depth to your drinks repertoire. Even if you just enjoy mixing up cocktails in a relaxed fashion on the weekend to enjoy at home, seek out a bottle of cask-aged gin and you won’t be disappointed. The Grand Limbeck is a great example of a cask-aged gin cocktail. The gin itself, Limbeck from the Eccentric Spirits range is beautiful peach. This colour comes from the French burgundy casks that the distilled gin rests in at our distillery. The aging process lasts 3-6 months. It allows the botanical profile to develop further than it...

Honey Gin Old Fashioned

Honey Gin Old Fashioned

The sun is shining (although for how long we can never be sure) and thoughts of cocktails spring to mind. This week, fresh from our mixologist’s bar, we bring you a honey gin old fashioned. Cocktails are all about balance. The right combination of sweet and sour, strong and weak flavours brought together in the perfect glass. The Old Fashioned is a classic ‘spirit-forward’ cocktail sitting alongside favourites such as the Manhattan, and of course the Martini (whether you prefer it shaken or stirred). It’s one of the oldest recorded cocktails and certainly one of the most popular. As you...
