1x Sloe Bramble (500ml)

A true celebration of the English countryside, this beautifully crafted drink brings back nostalgic reminders of sloe foraging trips for the Banks family.

Combining our 2019 vintage of sloe gin with an apple and anise hyssop syrup, the Sloe “Bramble” is a celebration of Tommy and James’ fond childhood memories spent with their Grandmother. Keswick Apples – Mary Banks’ favourite – have been hand-picked from the family’s own trees, before being juiced and combined with dried anise hyssop from the Black Swan garden to create a beautifully intense, acidic syrup. The sophisticated addition of a fennel distillate brings subtle flavours of liquorice and aniseed, creating a unique depth of flavour without overwhelming the palate.

A crowd-pleasing cocktail that oozes herbaceous complexity, this drink truly encapsulates the Banks’ strong family heritage and inherent connection to Oldstead.

Ready serve (No need to stir or shake) – just chill well, pour into a cold glass and enjoy!

1x Damson Metropolitan (500ml)

Inspired by the Metropolitan cocktail traditionally made with brandy and vermouth, this twist on the classic showcases our stunning larder of preserved ingredients.

Foraged in September 2020, damsons and hogweed provide the quintessential Autumnal flavour profile of this cocktail; warm and soothing with delicate nuances of spice. Our six-month matured damson brandy is complimented by our own bitter herb liqueur and hand-crafted hogweed tincture which lend an aromatic seasoning reminiscent of cardamom and orange.

To finish this cocktail, we’ve used our own blended sweet vermouth, bringing a subtle sweetness to balance the tart and zingy acidity while celebrating our abundance of restaurant garden botanicals, from woodruff and wormwood to fennel and rosemary.

Oldstead Ingredients: Damson Plum, Hogweed, Rosemary, Juniper, Wormwood, Lavender.

500ml 23.6% ABV
