We’re inspiring gin lovers to ‘think outside the glass’ on World Gin Day and create your own cocktails with the online launch of The Caorunn Cocktail Collection.
In a bid to inspire cocktail creativity amongst gin lovers, we have partnered with drinks connoisseurs, Diffords Guide, along with hundreds of bartenders to create an exquisite guide and collection of cocktails. The Caorunn Cocktail Collection will be available online at www.HighFiveToGin.com in time for World Gin Day on the 9th of June.
The cocktails have been created by leading mixologists from across the world, from some of the world’s leading cocktails bars, from London to Singapore and New York. Each cocktail is easy to make and is accompanied with expert knowledge, insight on balancing flavours and simple to follow tips.
Simon Difford, founder of the Difford’s Guide, selected each cocktail alongside our Gin Master, Simon Buley.
Simon Difford commented: “We had over 200 cocktails submitted with entries from around the world and it was good to see how both Scotland and the Scottish botanicals in Caorunn influenced these recipes – even those submitted by bartenders in countries far away and who have never visited Scotland. The aim of the book is to inspire people to have a go at making gin cocktails and creating their recipes. The cocktails selected to appear in the book have a broad range of styles and flavours and are suited to different drinking occasions.”
Simon Buley is extremely enthusiastic that gin lovers across the UK will have an opportunity to learn and experiment with Caorunn: ‘Every day, worldwide, thousands of gin cocktails are conjured up, from new takes on the classics to more diverse fusions. But sadly, many of these creations are fast forgotten, which is why it’s great to be collaborating with Diffords Guide so we may bring to life and importantly, also record some fantastic Caorunn cocktails that have at their very heart our patient craftsmanship.’
All of the drinks created for the Cocktail Collection show an empathy for our story of Scottish craftsmanship, which sees our distinctive local botanicals, including Coul blush apple, heather, dandelion, bog myrtle and rowan berry act in harmony with traditional gin ingredients and unsullied Scottish water.
This #WorldGinDay we encourage you to follow the creative process behind the book, and indeed share your recreations of the finished cocktails by tagging us in any pictures your share across social media #HighFiveToGin.
Please enjoy Caorunn Gin responsibly.
