Fabulous Drinks Co
We love an artisan producer, and the Fabulous Drink Co's passion for fresh, local ingredients in its gin and liqueurs make it a must have for your cocktail cabinet.
Love a local tipple? Berkshire is a hotbed of boozy brilliance with new producers popping up all over the county. Say hello to the Fabulous Drinks Company – a, well, fabulous artisan drinks producer based in Bracknell with a delicious range of small batch flavoured liqueurs and a brand spanking new pink gin. Summer’s looking up already.
Friends Simone Ray and Nelio Jardim have had lots of success with their 11 flavoured Santa Cruz liqueurs, including passion fruit, blackberry, ginger, pink grapefruit, rhubarb, rich coffee, to name a few. All the liqueurs are made using traditional recipes handed down from Nelio’s family in Madeira and made with British-grown fruit, as much as possible.
New to the Fabulous Drinks family is the Royal Berkshire Pink Gin – a smooth blend bursting with natural flavours and colour from British Raspberries, and it contains a rather healthy ABV of 37.5%. All their products are available to purchase online and come with tasty serving suggestions.
As a business they’re also sharing the local love, too – sourcing Berkshire ingredients, where possible, and use small businesses suppliers, many run by women. Lifting up the Berkshire sisterhood, what’s not to love about that.
There’s pretty much a flavour for every occasion and every cocktail. Pass me a premium tonic and load up the ice. We’re gasping!
