Chocolat

Chocolat

As something of a chocoholic I’ve always been disappointed in the quality of both the spirits and the cocktails available. However Austrian distiller promises to change this with a brand new spirit that provides all the flavour of chocolate with none of the sickliness – Mozart Dry

Abelha Cachaça

A first look at Abelha Cachaça, a new cachaça that has recently hit the British shores. Organically produced and available in unaged silver and 3 year old gold varieties, how does it taste, and what cocktails beyond the Caipirinha does it work well in?

A few dashes of bitters

While most cocktail recipes call for just a few dashes of bitters, others take things a little further.

Cherry Heering

Having already covered Kirsch and Maraschino, two cherry based spirits, tonight I turn my attention to Cherry Heering, a Danish liqueur that is brandy based and flavoured, as you might have guessed, by cherries.
