History of the Bramble Cocktail
At Heretic Spirits, we truly appreciate the simple things in life. Being able to do the basics exceptionally well, above all else, is something that we hold close to our hearts. It is our foundation for success, and it’s something we focus heavily on during the production of our spirits. We use a variety of ordinary ingredients and treat them with the respect and care that they deserve. In doing so, we’re left with something extraordinary. No bells, no whistles – just passionate people using traditional methods to make superior spirits.
When it came to creating a craft cocktail series, we wanted to focus on the same humble roots that made our gin and vodka so successful. ‘Do the simple things the right way’, we told ourselves. We figured there was no better way to honour that mentality than by putting our spin on some of the most classic recipes throughout cocktail history. We didn’t want to overdo it with flashy cocktails that take away from the character of our products. Instead, we wanted to help introduce our spirits through timeless cocktails built on the fundamentals of mixology; spirit, sugar, citrus, shake.
One recipe that undoubtedly epitomizes that method is The Bayside Bramble. Wildly popular across the Atlantic, The Bramble is short, strong, and flavourful, with a reputation as being a gin essential. The pairing of botanical gin with freshly muddled berries and citrus is a combination that is nothing less than divine. Adding a small dose of sugar syrup while mixing helps to cut the tartness of the fruit and allows you to get to know the gin on a much more personal level. And trust us when we say you’ll want to get to know this gin.
Bold and balanced, Heretic Gin is as good served neat as it is in a cocktail, and The Bayside Bramble is as good a cocktail as any. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how well the fruit and floral notes pair with each other, leaving you wanting more. To take it one step further, pair The Bayside Bramble with a selection of soft cheeses. Start with something more neutral like a fine, aged cheddar and work your way to the more obscure. Gouda, goat, Gruyère, or whatever your heart desires. The Bayside Bramble acts not only as an aperitif for your cheese board, but also as a profoundly delicious palate cleanser between bites. It’s the perfect cocktail and culinary combination for a dinner party of two… or twenty-two.
