    Peruvian Dinner Mint

    A pure alternative to standard sugar-laden chocolate liqueurs

    The alluring chocolatey cocktail is usually a work of deception. The siren song is chocolate, but whether it be the sugar, additives, or lack of inventiveness, those drinks leave you lamenting that it wasn’t worth it. Our Peruvian Dinner Mint cocktail is built with incorruptible pillars of taste that feel light and coordinated, not syrupy. The tea is roasted Peruvian cacao husk elevated with precision amounts of peppermint and spearmint, and you can take it with either scotch or vodka. Overall, it offers refreshingly enjoyable textural purity that you just won’t find in a bar.

    Elba Island

    A syndicate of exotic locations delivers impossible flavours

    An Elba Island cocktail is for when “take me away” or “surprise me” is your only drink instruction. What you get is pure adventure. Madagascan vanilla bean, sweet orange peel and mint are the golden threads running through a malty trivium of Yunnan, palace Pu’er and roasted Peruvian cacao husk. Inspired by escape and discovery, just looking at it will lift your spirits. Together, the flavours have an intricate valence that perhaps only a savant could articulate. But to everyone else, it just tastes like fun beneath sun and stars.

    Blue Beauty

    A vodka apparition moving from Prussian-blue to icy amethyst

    She’s pretty alright, like an orchid. But don’t be fooled – this is very drinkable, and will lull you into the chill zone as if you’re an unsuspecting mark in a film noir con scene. She arrives a placid blue by the sapphire ink of butterfly pea flower, shading the silver needle white tea, ginger and lemongrass. But the pH of the rose lemonade kombucha changes her to sparkling amethyst, and the pristine vodka cuts through a little too nicely. Made for skin, hair and eyes, Blue Beauty is all sophistication, and offers a cocktail that will turn heads anywhere.

    Blue Beauty
    Recommendation: Antipodes Organic Vodka
    Nexba Rose Kombucha Lemonade
