FORTNUM & MASON
Founded as a delicatessen in 1707, Fortnum's reputation was built on supplying quality food, and saw rapid growth throughout the Victorian era. Though Fortnum's developed into a department store, it continues to focus on stocking a variety of exotic, speciality and also basic provisions.
Since then, we have been working with the Fortnum's team on a permanent range that shows off some of the exceptional spirits in the Fortnum's range. The Espresso Daiquiri is a reimagining of Dick Bradsell’s iconic Espresso Martini, combining the tropical pineapple and coconut notes of the Fortnum's London White Rum with an intense, freshly-brewed espresso and sweetly-decadent coffee liqueur.
The Vesper Martini is marriage of the signature Fortnum's London Dry Gin’s botanical heart and the English Barley Vodka’s creamy lemongrass soul, balanced with Lillet Blanc and a herbal Vermouth.
The Robin Roy is made with sweet vermouth, bitters and Fortnum's exceptional English Single Malt Whisky. The result is a delicious cocktail rich in vanilla, toffee and red fruits notes - best enjoyed chilled and garnished with a maraschino cherry.
There are many more drinks in planning phase in this exciting collaboration. Watch this space for future releases.
