THE UNFOLDING STORY
Here’s drinking to your very good health. Responsibly, of course. Do let us know about the bloody marvellous creations you make with our gin.
“When Gorse is out of bloom, kissing is out of season” – so goes the old saying – from the belief that it’s always flowering somewhere.
Our GORSE FLOWER cocktail brings out the best in Jam Jar Gin with this foragers’ delight and its rich coconut-like fragrance, so abundant in our woods at the moment.
Matching coconut-infused maraschino and a gorse flower hydrosol with #JamJarGin creates a drink that lifts your spirits like a crisp, sunny spring day.
Here’s the recipe
40ml Jam Jar Gin
20ml orange liqueur
20ml lemon juice
2.5ml coconut-infused maraschino
2.5ml sugar syrup
3 drops gorse flower hydrosol
Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake quickly. Then fine strain into a wine goblet dusted with caster sugar and coconut flakes, then garnish with a long lemon twist (squeezed and dropped in).

World Gin Day is an exciting time to get together with friends, get behind your favourite gin, and discover new ones. But don’t be afraid to look beyond the G&T. Don’t get us wrong, it’s a tremendous drink, but we think that World Gin Day should be a chance to branch out a little.
So this World Gin Day, using our the luxury London Dry Gin – we’re encouraging people to explore other classic, contemporary and creative drinks, as well as celebrating the classic G&T.
We’re sharing three marvellous suggestions, along with some bloody marvellous places to try them.
There’s nothing quite like a G&T. The quintessentially British drink, perfect for long summer evenings. Refreshing and delicious. But don’t stop there, Gin – especially London Dry Gin – is so very versatile, that there are plenty of other delicious libations to try.
Take the Martinez, for example. One of the classic cocktails and said my many to be the grandfather of the martini. Delicate, complex and delicious, it’s a perfect cocktail to for a warm summer evening.And few places make it better than the Zetter Townhouse in London. Guy and the team there will be only too pleased to recreate this classic for you.
With a simplicity of ingredients that belies the complexity of the drink – 30ml Jam Jar Gin, 30ml Italian Vermouth, 2.5ml Maraschino Liqueur and 3 Dashes of Bokers Bitters.
Or if you’re looking for something more contemporary, try this little beauty, made by Reuben Gordon in Harvey Nichols.
They call it the Jar Head and it features Jam Jar Gin, White Chocolate, Rosemary Sugar, Vanilla Ice Cream and Strawberries. Delicious. Visit them in Herne Hill and let Chris and Dave work their magic for you.
So, on World Gin Day, a G&T is always tremendous, but perhaps it’s a good opportunity to look a little further afield and make something bloody marvellous. Responsibly, of course.
This marvellous creation was made by our friend Claudio Peri, using Jam Jar Gin over at The Soda Jerk in Verona.
Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene.
But no ancient grudge here. Far from it. Rather a star-cross’d combination of our gin and world class cocktail expertise ending up in this superb creation.
And here’s the recipe
45ml Jam Jar Gin
35ml raspberry syrup (50% brix)
25ml pineapple extract
3 dashes pink grapefruit bitter
10ml egg white
Shake and strain, then add drops of orange oils and dried rose petals.
And when you’re next in Verona, make sure you don’t miss a visit to his tremendous bar
This is the cocktail that got us into gin many years ago.
Light and lemony with a soft top – just like a lemon meringue pie. Delicious with or without the egg-white – as you prefer. Either way, you’re in for a treat.
Here’s how you make it:
This is the Last Word
Super tangy, super balanced. A bloody marvellous, classic cocktail
Here’s how you make it:
0.75 shot Green Chartreuse Liqueur
0.75 shot Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
0.75 shot lime juice
0.5 shot mineral water
Shake with ice and fine strain into a cocktail glass. Nothing more to say.
