Everyone loves a good cocktail, but not everyone can make a good one. So, William Grant & Sons, the owners of brands like Sailor Jerry and Tullamore D.E.W, is making it easier with their new Batch & Bottle line of ready-to-drink cocktails.
Available in four classic yet distinct cocktails, the Batch & Bottle offerings include the Monkey Shoulder Lazy Old Fashioned, the Reyka Rhubarb Cosmopolitan, the Glenfiddich Scotch Manhattan and the Hendrick's Gin Martini. Each cocktail was created by their respective brand’s ambassadors (usually former bartenders who have a specific love for that spirit) and other industry experts.
"As consumer drinking occasions continue to rapidly evolve, and as Ready-To-Drink cocktails continue to explode in popularity across the US, we want to arm our fans with elevated and exciting cocktail options from the iconic brands they already know and love," said Paul Basford, William Grant & Sons US President and Managing Director. "As Master Distillers, industry leaders and cocktail aficionados, we know our spirits best, so we wanted to offer our expertise, batched for people to be able to finally enjoy bar quality cocktails at home, without the hassle."
Learn a little more about each of the four Batch & Bottle expressions below:
- Monkey Shoulder Lazy Old Fashioned: This Old Fashioned combines Monkey Shoulder Scotch Whisky's blend with bitters and golden sugar to make the whiskey drinker’s classic cocktail.
- Glenfiddich Scotch Manhattan: The Manhattan but make it with Scotch. Glenfiddich’s single malt soothes the sharp bitters and envelops the sweet vermouth, creating a cocktail both bold and delicate.
Hendrick's Gin Martini: Distilled with the unusual inclusion of cucumber and rose, the Hendrick's Gin cocktail is full of floral, citrus and herbal notes.
- Reyka Rhubarb Cosmopolitan: Reyka Vodka, made of Iceland, mingles rhubarb, blood orange and fresh lime to create the classic cocktail made famous in movies and TV shows.
Previously made available in the UK and Australia, Batch & Bottle is available nationwide for a $16.99 a bottle.
