Let’s Raise a Glass this Jubilee Weekend

As another lovely four day weekend approaches, it’s time to start chilling the drinks. Here’s our round-up to help you toast the Queen in style.

 

Amaro Santoni

Amaro Santoni offers an elegantly light taste of Tuscan summer led by rhubarb and iris with undertones of citrus and olive leaves. With 34 natural herbs and botanicals the lightly alcoholic (16% ABV) ruby liquid goes beyond the classic concept of amaro and pays homage to the treasures of its hometown, Florence, in both form and flavour. Try it with tonic for a new take on a summer spritz.

Amaro Santoni is already on the menus at some of London’s best bars and is available now from The Whisky Exchange and Amazon for £26.95.

Cotswold Gin

The Cotswolds Distillery has come up trumps with its limited edition Platinum Jubilee Gin. The limited edition Gin is a blend of nine carefully considered botanicals, layered with strawberry, raspberry and pink pepper. Packed with fruity notes it leaves a delicious taste of smooth vanilla ice cream in the mouth, which can never be a bad thing. It makes for the perfect celebratory G&T when mixed with tonic and served with fresh strawberries.

The Cotswolds Distillery Platinum Jubilee Gin ABV: 46%, £34.95, available from Majestic Wines

ADRIATICO Amaretto

Taking its name from the sea next to where their almond trees grow, ADRIATICO Roasted and ADRIATICO Bianco Amarettos are made from handpicked Italian almonds from Puglia and are 100% natural. As well as being one of the only amarettos made from real almonds, these premium Amarettos are also Gluten Free and Vegan Certified.

ADRIATICO Roasted Amaretto is one of the most versatile liqueurs and is best enjoyed in an Amaretto Sour, topped up with Ginger Beer for an ADRIATICO Mule or neat over ice. Definitely a fine addition to any drinks cabinet this summer.
