Celebrate Valentine’s Day 2021 with these exquisite cocktails from Salcombe Distilling Co

Ahead of the most romantic day of the year, the nationally-recognised South Devon based distillery, Salcombe Distilling Co., have shared their winning formula for the ultimate romantic evening in with your loved one. Whether sharing at home with a partner, or virtually with friends this February, Salcombe Distilling Co.’s signature alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails make for the perfect accompaniment to a Valentine’s Day at home.

Indulge the senses this February 14th with the ‘Rosé Negroni’, a delicate balance between Salcombe Distilling Co.’s dry rosé gin ‘Rosé Sainte Marie’, and the aromatic bittersweetness from rosé vermouth, making for a delicious serve that is sweet, fruity and nutty in equal measure. 

Inspired by the flavours, aromas and lifestyle of the South of France, ‘Rosé Sainte Marie’ pays homage to the ‘Sainte Marie’ lighthouse, in the Old Port of Marseille. Here, nineteenth century ‘Salcombe Fruit Schooners’ would load supplies of citrus fruits and herbs before returning to the UK. The award-winning delicate, fresh flavours of the gin emulate qualities of a dry rosé wine and set the president in a flavoured gin market that is typically overcrowded with sugary alternatives. Although a natural shade of pink, the gin is purposefully dry and has no added sugar, artificial colours or flavours.

Perfect for health-conscious drinkers this February, the non-alcoholic ‘K N Sour’ is an exciting and flavoursome serve, proving that alcohol-free doesn’t have to be dull. Combining the citrus flavours of Salcombe Distilling Co.’s non-alcoholic spirit ‘New London Light’ (NLL) with warming ginger spice and fresh lemon citrus, this cocktail is ideal for those looking to avoid alcohol without compromising on taste this Valentine’s day.  

Inspired by the world-class quality benchmark set by the historic ‘London Dry’ gin, ‘NLL’ has been crafted to deliver a best-in-class non-alcoholic spirit, providing the perfect option for health-conscious drinkers who don’t want to miss out on flavour and quality. ‘NLL’ is crafted by first distilling three botanicals; rich Macedonian juniper berries, ginger and habanero capsicum, into which fifteen additional botanicals are blended, delivering complex layers of flavour with hints of citrus orange and sage.
