SIBLING GIN

£36.99

THE SIBLING & LEMON

For those who aren’t keen on tonic, or those who want a change, try this refreshing cocktail that zings with summer herbs.

Mix it: pour one measure of Sibling Gin into a large fish bowl-style gin and tonic glass, add plenty of ice and top with Fever-Tree Sicilian Lemonade. Serve with a sprig of rosemary for a truly tasty continental cocktail.

SIX O’CLOCK GIN

£35.99

THE FLORADORA

This deliciously fruity cocktail has tart summer berries mixed with warming spice notes, perfect for a long summer’s evening.

Mix it: build the drink in a hi-ball glass over plenty of ice. Add 50ml gin, 20ml raspberry liqueur and 20ml lime juice. Stir, then top with ginger ale. Garnish with lime wedges and fresh raspberries.

COTSWOLDS DISTILLERY DRY GIN

£34.99

COTSWOLD GIN & MINT RICKEY

Deliciously fresh and zesty, this is the Cotswolds answer to a refreshing mojito.

Mix it: lightly bruise a handful of mint leaves in the base of a hi-ball glass. Add 50ml Cotswolds Dry Gin, 20ml fresh lime juice and 15ml sugar syrup. Half fill the glass with crushed ice and stir with a bar spoon. Fill the glass with more ice, top up with soda water, stir and serve with a mint sprig garnish.

SPIRIT OF THE COTSWOLDS VODKA

£35.00

THE COTSWOLD DONKEY

This interpretation of the classic Moscow Mule is made from Cotswold Vodka that’s distilled five times to ensure a smooth, clean finish.

Mix it: pour 50ml Cotswold Vodka into a metal mug (a classic Moscow mule is made in a metal vessel) or tumbler. Fill three quarters full of crushed ice, then fill to the top with ginger beer. Stir to combine then add a few dashes of ginger bitters. Serve with a sprig of mint and a wedge of lime to squeeze over.

CHELTENHAM GIN

£37.99

RHUBY WALSH

A dash of seasonal rhubarb in your standard G&T gives a delicious sweetness and a rosy hint of pink.

Mix it: take a Spanish-style copa glass and add 50ml gin. Add a dash of rhubarb cordial – or choose rhubarb liqueur – then add 100ml Indian tonic water. Fill to the top with plenty of ice and serve.

COTSWOLDS DISTILLERY DRY GIN

£34.99

EASTERN STANDARD

Kick back at any time with this most refreshing of cocktails. With the coolness of the cucumber and the freshness of the mint you’ll soon be back for another.

Mix it: muddle three slices of cucumber into a cocktail mixer. Add 50ml Cotswolds Dry Gin, 25ml lime juice and 20ml sugar syrup. Fill with ice and give the ingredients a good shake. Pop in three mint leaves and stir, then strain into a chilled Martini glass and serve with a slice of cucumber to garnish.
