In this short episode, we learn how to make a new cocktail based on a new gin just launched by The House of Divine.
This is a spectacular cocktail, created by Matt Stanley, that you can try with other gins if you can’t get hold of the very special Oak-aged Divine Special.
Pour 12.5 ml of Divine Raspberry Gin into a glass with ice.
Add 25ml of Divine Oak-aged Gin
Add 10ml of Red Vermouth
Add 4 dashes of Angostura Bitters
Add 2 drops of Aromatic Bitters
Add 10 ml of Creme de Peche
Give it a nice long stir (15 to 20 seconds) in the glass
Cut a slice of orange rind off an orange.
Pop a cherry into a fresh cocktail glass
Strain your cocktail from the glass you prepared it into the cocktail glass
Express oils from orange peels over your cocktail glass
Discard the orange peel and serve your cocktail – enjoy!
We had the privilege of tasting a very special limited edition of oak-aged gin from the House of Divine.
Only 50 bottles of this very limited special gin have just been created by the House of Divine Gin.
The gin has been left standing in a Laphroaig oak barrel to create a drink that some would argue was a gin whilst others a whiskey.
In fact, it sits in between these two classifications as a unique taste all of it’s own.
For anyone that likes something special, this is for them, very limited and very special!
If it should become available you should be able to find it on Divines website, (https://www.divinegin.com) but I am sure if Ray does release this wonderful unique creation they will be snapped up faster than you can say “gone”!
We visit Whitakers Distillery in the beautiful rural countryside of North Yorkshire.
We discuss how they started their distilling journey some four years ago.
From the experiments in the kitchen through to getting a significant Rural Development grant to build their own custom made distillery, complete with it’s own neutral spirit distilling plant making it one, of only 12, distilling plants in the UK that can produce it’s own neutral spirit
We then taste some of the fantastic gins they produce.
