What is it? From? How much? What with?

Gin England/Iceland £23.00 Tonic & Fresh Strawberries

[the drinks]

Martin Miller’s Gin

They say: Martin Miller, the eponymous figure behind the creation of Martin Miller’s Gin, first created his award winning gin in 1999. As the first of the “New Wave” gins, Martin Miller’s Gin has been at the very heart of gin’s recent Renaissance. Martin crafts his gin with loving attention to detail, distilling in England by traditional methods using only the heart of the spirit and ten fine botanicals. Quite rightfully, he insists on blending using only Icelandic water, the purest, softest water in the world. This marriage of purity and spirit has created a benchmark for gins around the world. We say: Millers Gin has to up there as one of our favorite Gins. It first came to our attention back in 2004, and the popularity of it since then has understandably grown and grown. It’s a peppery gin on the nose, and many serve Millers with tonic, freshly cut strawberries and a twist of black pepper to boot, ask any decent bar and they’ll sort you out. Amazing. We’re personally a big fan of substituting the strawberry for some refreshing cucumber sticks instead, as it compliments the black pepper so well, and turns the humble gin and tonic into a whole different beast. This one comes with our highest possible recommendation, it’s awesome.

Tapatio Blanco Tequila What is it? Tequila From? Mexico How much? £22.00 What with? Verdita Available from: Lupe Pintos, 313 Great Western Road www.lupepintos.com and The Good Spirit Company, 23 Bath Street www. thegoodspiritco.com They say:

Tapatio Blanco & Verdita served up by Rob @ The Ivy

‘Tapatio’ is a Mexican word referring to a man from Jalisco, the tequila-producing state of Mexico. Women from the region are known as ‘Tapatias’. At the La Alteña distillery, the methods of production are the same as they were a century ago, with a large stone wheel (known as a Tahona) turned in a pit to crush the cooked agave plants. The juice and agave fibres are then mixed in a barrel by foot before fermentation and distillation. Assertive, spicy and supple, this delicious silver tequila is the perfect introduction to the Tapatio range.

Win a bottle of Tapatio Blanco Tequila! To be in for a chance of getting your hands on a bottle, go to our Facebook page and tag yourself in the Tapatio album. www.facebook.com/barcodebible

Rekorderlig What is it? From? How much? What with?

They say: Cider Sweden £3.80 (500ml) Ice

Rekorderlig served up by Carrie O’Neill @ The Tiki Bar

Rekorderlig Cider was first created in 1999, combining the highest quality fruits with the purest spring water from Vimmerby, Sweden, where it is still brewed today. From its humble roots, Rekorderlig has retained its character to become a much loved, fourth generation family-brewed cider.

traditionally refreshing apple, distinctively crisp pear, dry and juicy wild berries, zesty strawberry-lime and the newest addition, fruity appleblackcurrant, Rekorderlig’s take on ‘cider and black’. There is also a limited edition winter cider which is made using a blend of the finest apples infused with cinnamon and vanilla.

There are five unique flavours of Rekorderlig to enjoy all year round;

Perfect over ice or serve our winter cider warm.


What is it?

Whisky Liqueur

How much?

£23.99

From?

Scotland

What with?

Ginger Beer & Fresh Lime

They say:

We say:

Drambuie is an authentic brand steeped in over 260 years worth of history, and still produced and bottled in Scotland. A secret selection of herbs, spices and Scottish heather honey infused into a Scotch whisky base. Malts from Speyside and Highland regions renowned for softness and smoothness are used to complement the herbs and spices of the elixir. Drambuie’s name is derived from the gaellic ‘An Dram Buidheach’ – The drink that satisfies.

Drambuie! A must have behind the bar. Drambuie is a timeless spirit that has aged very well indeed. Drambuie is obviously great served straight up or with some ice thrown in for good measure, but there’s more to this Scottish tipple than meets the eye. Be sure to look out for cocktails that feature this beautiful nectar coloured liquid as it adds some subtle yet impressive notes of mint, liquorice and malt that really help to round off the more classic style drinks.

Drambuie 15 What is it?

Whisky Liqueur

How much?

£34.99

From?

Scotland

What with?

Sip & savour over ice

They say:

We say:

Drambuie 15 is a connoisseur expression of Drambuie, in which our finest selection of 15 year old Speyside malts complement the complex aromas of the secret recipe.

Drambuie 15 takes the more refined Speyside 15 whiskey and employs its services in producing this beautiful aged whisky liqueur. Playing with more grassy and butterscotch notes while still holding onto the characteristic citrus tones of it’s younger brother, this spirit liqueur is the perfect way to enjoy a cheeky tipple on the lead up to Christmas. Obviously, with a 15 year old such as this, you’d be silly not to sip it neat, with the cocktail conscious out there describing it as a Rusty Nail in a glass! Yum!

The result is a refined, drier expression of Drambuie bottled at 43% ABV, perfect for sipping and savouring either neat or over ice.
