Winter Cocktails

 What are you drinking this winter?

Here are a few ideas on how to drink your Winter Gin at home 
Don't be shy when it comes to experimenting with our Winter Gin. With those distinctive wintry notes of orange, cassia bark and pepper berry it will go beautifully in our mulled gin recipe or simply topped with ginger ale. Or try it in our Winter Negroni recipe below...  

Winter Negroni

30ml Winter Gin

30ml Okar Amaro 

30ml Maidenii Sweet Vermouth

Mix all ingredients into a mixing glass, top with ice and stir. Strain into an old-fashioned glass and garnish with an apple slice.

Hot Buttered Winter Gin

45 ml Winter Gin

60ml Apple Juice

20ml Sugar syrup (infused with cloves, cardamom, cinnamon and orange)

1 x Cinnamon quill

1 x Orange peel

1 x knob of butter

Heat all ingredients together until the flavours have infused. Serve warm in a goblet glass. Garnish with the cinnamon quills and orange peel. Magnificent! 

 Spicy Winter Gin Classic

The Winter Gin combines the flavours of juniper and winter botanicals including nutmeg, star anise, cinnamon, orange, & native pepper berry so you can simply serve it with ginger ale for a spicy twist and garnish it with a slice of apple and star anise. 

Brandy Old Fashioned

60 ml Ochre brandy

1 sugar cube

Several dashes Angostura bitters

Soda water

1 (1/2-inch-thick) orange slice

1 Cinnamon Stick


Place the sugar cube in an Old Fashioned glass and splash it with the bitters. Add a dash of soda water (just enough to dissolve the sugar), the orange slice. Gently muddle to crush the fruit but not pulverize it. Fill the glass with ice cubes and add the brandy. Top off with soda and garnish with cinnamon stick. 



30ml Ochre Brandy

30ml Benedictine

Pour the liquors into a brandy balloon. Stir well. Add ice if you like. You can also use the back of a bar spoon to gently float the brandy on top of the liqueur.
