Live the tiki life
Inspired by the tropical exotica of 1950s’ island-style cocktail bars, this Copeland Tiki Gin has classic London Dry ingredients (think juniper, lemon peel, coriander) , but also has an exotic mix of cloves, cassia and ginger – often associated with spiced rums. The addition of tonka bean, rummy molasses and real pineapple adds a deliciousness that takes you to the beach bar… Think tiki cocktails like the mai tai and the Singapore sling. And what, exactly, is tiki? Created in the 1950s by cocktail legend Don the Beachcomber, when post-war Americans were looking for escapism. Hefty pours of rum and potent secret syrups made the tiki experience a heady world to get lost in. But tiki’s not just about rum. Many of the cocktails included gin… so hello, Copeland Tiki Gin. Besides cocktails, it’s perfectly happy mixed with tonic and a signature pineapple garnish – a dried or fresh pineapple wheel, but other exotic pairings are encouraged. Fresh juice blends or ginger ale garnished with the vibrant, the colourful and the exotic. Edible flowers, mint sprigs, whole star anise and cinnamon quills. Sound appealing? Add to the experience with a bottle of Copeland Rum. Your drinks trolley, and your friends, will thank you. R395 a bottle. Details: copelandrum.com.
