We’ve had Two Birds Spirits in our Farm Shop since March and so far, they’ve been a hit! So we’ve put together some ideas on (tried and tested) cocktails using different flavors that we stock at the Farm Shop, just in time for the gorgeous summer sun!
First up is a more classic taste called ‘Old Tom Gin’ – nothing to do with a chap called ‘Tom’ – this Gin gets it’s name from the unusual Tom catshaped plaque that hung outside gin houses during ‘Gin Craze’. They’ve refined the original 18th Century recipe a touch, while still retaining the slightly sweeter taste which made this spirit so popular.
Best served keeping it simple with a gin Martini. Mix gin and vermouth then drop in an olive or two. Cheers to that!
If you fancy a fruity twist we also have the ‘Raspberry & English Vodka’ – Two Bird’s love good old English berries – they use them in a few of their spirits and their Raspberry Vodka is no exception. The first few batches were made using their own allotment grown berries. Now they source only the finest, freshly picked raspberries from the English countryside.
Try 50ml of Raspberry Vodka with 125ml fresh cloudy apple juice served with lots of ice in a tall glass. Throw in a couple of fresh raspberries and a slice of apple on the side.
