Cocktail Recipes and Perfect Pairings

Barry Island Gin and Tonic

Who doesn't love a classic G&T? Simply grab your favourite glass, add ice and a slice of lime and mix Barry Island Gin and Tonic water to you preferred balance.  Also works great with soda water.

Because Blood Orange and Lime Zest are the equally balanced lead botanicals in our Welsh Dry Gin why not try your Barry Island Gin and Tonic with a slice of orange to bring out the orange notes in the gin.

We love Llanllyr's Source Indian Tonic water with our Welsh Dry Gin.

Barry Island Negroni

The Blood Orange in our award winning Welsh Dry Gin lends itself to beautifully to this classic Italian cocktail.

 

Here's what you'll need to make a classic Negroni at home:

Pour all the ingredients in to a glass and give it a gentle stir to blend the spirits.

Add ice cubes in to a tumbler and pour your spirits mix over the top. Garnish with a slice of orange to finish.

There you have it, a simple and elegant Negroni. Enjoy!

Yuzu Tom Collins

We love sharp, bold, punchy citrus flavours. Our take on a traditional Tom Collins cocktail adds Yuzu (an East Asian citrus fruit) to really boost up those zesty lime notes.

Named after a hoax that was doing the rounds in New York in 1874, the Tom Collins is a long drink often served in a tall, thin glass (referred to as a Collins glass or high ball). It's really refreshing and super easy drinking. Our citrus-forward dry gin really complements the lime juice and yuzu seltzer in this classic cocktail - we're big fans. Of course, if you don't have any Yuzu seltzer this drink is just as delicious if you use soda water.

Here's what you'll need:

Add ice to your cocktail shaker and pour in the gin, lime juice and sugar syrup. Shake for 5 seconds to blend and cool the ingredients.

Strain the mixture in to a tall glass.  Add ice cubes then add the yuzu seltzer. Garnish with a wedge of lime to finish.
