We love sharing our expertise when it comes to drinks and flavour combinations - we love lifting the lid on our favourite delicious drinks combinations. After all, as the experts, it’d be selfish to keep them a secret! We’ve partnered with Lyme Bay Winery this week so that we can provide you with even more fantastic flavour pairings perfect for the festive period.
Lyme Bay Winery is based in the heart of Devon where they create award-winning English wine, Cider, Mead, Liqueurs and spirits. Tailored to the 21st-century palate, each of their drinks have been fermented, blended and aged appropriately by a very passionate team. Since opening their doors over 25 years ago, they have won multiple awards including gold at the International Spirits Challenge and World Rum Awards. This was awarded to their delicious Jack Ratt Lugger Spiced Rum - which of course we have featured in one of our collaborative cocktails.
Winter Gin paired with Ginger and Juniper Sparkler
Best enjoyed on a winter evening by a roaring fire, LBW Winter gin comes straight from the Jurassic Coast. Earthy tones layered with black pepper and nutmeg over notes of berries and burnt orange perfectly complement our warming Ginger and Juniper Sparkler. You won’t find a drink more festive - it really does taste like Christmas.
Jack Ratt Lugger Rum with Cherry Juice
Rum is at the heart of many popular cocktails as well as gaining a well-deserved reputation of being enjoyed on its own. We have paired the award-winning Jack Ratt Lugger Rum with our sweet Cherry Juice. The delicate spices are deepened by the full-bodied cherry juice. This really is the perfect treat on a cold winter day.
Dry Gin paired with Tomato Juice
The LBW Dry Gin is fresh and bursting with traditional botanical flavours. It mixes perfectly with our smooth Tomato Juice and if you really want to impress your guests with a sophisticated drink, add a few olives or a slice of lemon and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Orange and Thyme Gin paired with Apple and Raspberry Fusion
Fruits and botanicals have always been a match made in heaven. The zesty Orange and Thyme Gin offers a spectacular take on a classic combination of flavours and draws together the bittersweet citrus flavours with subtle hints of peppermint. When mixed with our Apple and Raspberry Fusion you are served the fruitiest flavours.
Chilli mead paired with Ginger and Juniper Sparkler
This combination is the perfect option for those looking for a tipple with a twist. Lyme Bay Winery has been perfecting their mead recipe for over 15 years and love pushing the boundaries with experimental, bold flavours. Their Chilli Mead has the perfect balance of sweet honey with the spicy kick of fiery chilli. Mixing it with our warming Ginger and Juniper Sparkler will leave your tongue tingling with delight!
