It's finally here! Our same classic ready to drink Oak Aged Negroni, in a beautiful new bottle to match the rest of the Downpour range.
It was back in the early days of the first lockdown, as a homemade cocktail craze swept the nation, that we were inspired to create a ready-to-drink edition of our favourite cocktail, the classic Italian aperitivo, Negroni.
A simple combination of gin, amaro and vermouth, we gave ours a little something extra by first ageing our Downpour Scottish Dry Gin in oak casks, lending the finished drink a depth of flavour that makes the sophisticated tipple even more delicious.
While it was once intended to be a limited edition offering, every time we have attempted to retire our Downpour Oak Aged Negroni we have been met with a deluge of despair from cocktail connoisseurs, and so it is that we've been convinced that it won't be go-going anywhere.
In 2022 our Negroni was awarded a gold star in the Great Taste Awards, and judges complimented its 'well controlled bitters', 'lovely earthiness on the nose', and 'subtle hint of vanilla followed by a leafy, smoky finish.'
