Our first bottled cocktail is a powerful one, from its rich amber red colour to intense flavours and booziness. There's nine full-on drinks in this party pack of three 200mL bottles!
Our Navy Strength Gin was created with the help of Melbourne gin legend, Shaun Byrne of Gin Palace. So when Shaun gave us a couple of Maidenii Nocturne Vermouth barrels to play around with, we decided to age some Navy Strength in it of course. After that we aged it some more in chardonnay barrels, ending up a pretty darn powerful gin - navy-strength and double-barrelled…
And we decided that this gin should go into a bottled cocktail with a similar punchy style. So we batched the gin with Maidenii Sweet Vermouth, Fernet-Branca and absinthe to make our ‘Improved Hanky Panky’.
How do you drink this boozy bit of Hanky Panky? Take a tumbler and fill with ice. Measure and pour 65ml over the ice, then stir for about 10 seconds. Garnish with a few slices of orange and enjoy after dinner in delicious moderation.
