Introduction to the Art of the Perfect Negroni

The classic Negroni is a cornerstone of Italian cocktail tradition which stands firm on the foundations of balance and sophistication. By harmonising the distinct layers of sweet vermouth's complexity, Campari's invigorating bitterness, and the botanical richness of gin, this cocktail achieves the perfect equilibrium.  To enhance every facet of the Negroni, it is essential to embark on a journey through the diverse world of gins, each subtly altering the cocktail's persona.

Ultimate Gins for Your Negroni

  • Bombay Sapphire signifies the quintessential gin choice, boasting a distinctly crisp taste profile resulting from its vapour-infusion distillation process. This lends an exceptional depth to the cocktail, ensuring each Negroni is imbued with its signature purity.
  • Tanqueray No. Ten is characterised by its fresh citrus core, crafted using whole fruit botanicals. This premium gin choice adds a delicate zest that brightens the Negroni, making it a must-try for citrus lovers and Negroni enthusiasts alike.
  • Sipsmith V.J.O.P. (Very Junipery Over Proof Gin) offers a bold and juniper-rich savour, providing an intensified complexity that brims with the heart of gin’s botanical essence, resulting in an ultra-rich Negroni profile.
  • Plymouth Gin invites aficionados to savour historical richness through a relatively softer juniper note. Its smooth profile makes for an understated yet equally compelling Negroni—one that welcomes a gentle, leisurely sip.
  • The Botanist delivers an exploration into a lush tapestry of botanicals, with 22 hand-foraged island herbs elevating the gin to exotic heights. This gin fosters a Negroni steeped in organic nuance and rustic charm.
  • Engine Organic Gin contains a multitude of botanics including Juniper, lemon, liquorice root, sage and Damask rose, to deliver a truly unique flavour profile that is both floral but with hints of sweet spice.
