With summer weather finally on its way for us this weekend and it falling right on time for the end of BBQ week, there's a lot for Brits to be excited about.
Everyone knows that no good barbecue can be without the grub, and what would a summer shindig be without the drinks?
For those eager to find their new summer staple, an exciting new launch from premium gin brand, Scapegrace is sure to be on the must-have lists for all of your dazzling cocktails.
Scapegrace Black is the world’s first naturally ‘Black Gin’ that when mixed with tonic magically changes to a vivid purple before your eyes.
The 70cl bottle boasts a 41.6% ABV and can be found at numerous retailers including Master of Malt (£35.95), The Whisky Exchange (£38.25), House of Malt (£35.95) and Loch Fyne Whiskies (£37.50)
Scapegrace Black is an ultra-premium gin distilled using glacial pure water from New Zealand’s Southern Alps.
From the award-winning Scapegrace distillery in New Zealand, this colour-popping, super smooth gin boasts a unique collection of natural extracts from the ground, plants, flowers and berries – further helping to reinforce the 'taste of summer'.
Daniel Mclaughlin, Co-Founder & Managing Director said: “The Scapegrace brand is all about creating a brave new world for alcohol and gin lovers, crafting nontraditional spirits using nontraditional techniques. We’re so excited for the UK to taste and get creative with Scapegrace Black this summer.”
Mixed with tonic, splashed into cocktails or sipped straight, Scapegrace Black is ideal for gin lovers experimenting with new summer soirée serves or to spruce up at-home staycations. The signature serve is best enjoyed with a premium tonic and garnished with a slice of fresh, green apple.
For the cocktail makers amongst us, why not experiment with your own thirst-quenching cocktail?
The Chokeberry Fizz is a berried and floral based riff on the classic gin fizz. It takes its name from the berry family the Aronia berry comes from, this fizz enlivens the idea of showcasing Aronia, its depth of texture and its floral notes.
