We wanted to come up with something special to welcome our guests to Ginchester on World Gin Day and so naturally we chose to create something with a bit of fizz. As with many great British creations, we’ve taken influences from abroad (in this case, French and Italian) to create our nod to one of our all time favourites, the French 75. Having indulged in a lot of Italian bubbly in recent weeks it seemed topical to create something using Prosecco Superiore DOCG, which lends its crisp fruitiness to the drink.
The Winch 75 is our celebratory drink, designed to showcase Winchester Distillery’s Twisted Nose Gin. Just the right side of sweet, this beautifully refreshing, citrus cocktail makes a great alternative to a Bellini and, we think, would be perfect for sipping in the summer sun in the beautiful cathedral city of Winchester! Have a go at home and let us know what you think by leaving a comment below!
