Empress Gin & Lychee Cocktail

An exquisite tasting cocktail made with 1908 Empress Gin, a perfect blend of juniper and citrus notes. This small batch gin is infused with butterfly pea blossom, an exotic herb that balances the traditional citrus notes of gin with a warm herbal earthiness, and gives the gin its natural indigo colour.

Orange Blossom Cocktail

A refreshingly sweet and citrusy gin based cocktail. Vibrant orange to add a little cheer and colour to these wintry months.

Merry Christmas!

Summer Fruit Clafoutis

Traditional clafoutis is made with whole cherries as the pits give off an almond taste to the pudding. This recipe incorporates ground almond in the batter with pitted cherries (easier to eat) plus other summer berries. A delicious summer pudding eaten warm or cold.
