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.

In 2018, for the first time, Fortnum & Mason put bottled cocktails on the shelf in their wonderful drinks section on the Lower Ground Floor. To our delight, having reviewed the entire market, they selected Myatt's Fields Cocktails to be their partner.

In 2021, Fortnum & Mason delivered their first bottled cocktail based on the Fortnum's spirits range. The Honey, Be Mine cocktail was a runaway success and sold out in a few weeks.

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.
