Eccentric Plum Punch rum cocktail

Eccentric Plum Punch rum cocktail

You might think that our Eccentric Spirits range is all about the gin, but that’s not the case. When we brought the business out to the west coast of Wales, we were keen to introduce a rum. Black Batch Rum is the result. It takes its colour from a heavily charred cask of American oak. Flavour-wise, it’s lightly spiced with orange, cinnamon & cloves. These characteristics make it perfect for a rum cocktail. We were talking to our mixologist, Owen, who has created delicious serves for all our gins. He is the brains behind our Eccentric rum punch cocktail. Having...

A St David’s Day cocktail

A St David’s Day cocktail

Some countries celebrate their patron saints less enthusiastically than others. In Wales, St David’s Day remains a key event in the calendar. While some may have moved on from wearing traditional dress in the distillery, a St David’s Day cocktail is always a winner! The Eccentric Spirits range has a proud Welsh history. The gins were originally inspired by a mostly forgotten Welshman – Dr William Price. While many won’t recognise his name, Dr Price was hugely influential for his time. He also spoke his mind and wasn’t afraid to tread a new path. His attitude is one that reflects...

Young Tom in an Old Tom cocktail

Young Tom in an Old Tom cocktail

Tom’s Strawberry Thyme is the name of this delightful serve for Young Tom gin from the Eccentric range. As an Old Tom cocktail, this is perfect as we move from Spring into Summer. Get your strawberries at the ready, along  with thoughts of balmy summer evenings ahead. An Old Tom cocktail might not be something you’d immediately think of. However, the sweetness that this family of gins are known for makes them well worth a visit when you’re looking for cocktails. Old Tom gins traditionally had sweetness added to them. One reason as to why this came about suggests that...

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. Our mixologist has paired the gin with refreshing lime, mint and...

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? Pembrokeshire Pinky from the Eccentric Spirits range just begs to be mixed up into something with a bit of frou frou and pzazz. She’s a bit of an attention seeker too. Unlike our other Eccentric spirits serves, we’ve given her (and you!) two cocktails to enjoy. 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....

Enjoy a cask-aged gin cocktail

Enjoy a cask-aged gin cocktail

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...
