The perfect gift for the gin-loving literary buff in your life … and who doesn’t have one of those?
12th Oct 2020
In honour of its namesake – the most extraordinary of Irish characters, Wilde Irish Gin is launching a limited-edition cocktail kit on Oscar Wilde’s birthday this October 16th.
As Oscar would say “A man’s face is his autobiography …” and Wilde Irish Gin certainly tells a story in everything it does. This pleasingly kooky cocktail kit not only features all the elements you need to create the perfect drink at home, but also a keepsake copy of arguably one of the great Irish wit’s greatest works – The Picture of Dorian Gray.
The cocktail, which has been commissioned especially for this celebration, is called ‘Wilde 16’, a refreshing mix of Wilde Irish Gin, fresh lime juice, elderflower cordial, prosecco, soda water and fresh mint, a combination that lets the gin’s botanicals of the wild mountain purple heather and bitter orange peel really shine through.
The cocktail kit ingredients create four servings and is accompanied by an instructional video link to a step-by-step demo by Wilde brand ambassador Stuart Cullen.
Each kit comes with a full 700ml bottle of gin encased in its iconic purple Italian Murano glass to adorn your home bar. Wilde Irish Gin is distilled by hand in small batches with two copper pot stills to ensure a level of quality that can only result from a master distiller’s intuition.
The very limited release costs €49 (the normal retail price of a bottle on its own) plus delivery and is available to order via The Celtic Whiskey Shop website from 16th October 2020. Get your order in early if you’re already thinking this might be the perfect [festive C-word] gift …
