    Created by Chris Tanner from The Proofing Rooms

    Ingredients: J&B Rare, elderflower, peach and eucalyptus.

    “I enjoy the versatility of J&B rare, it’s a great whisky for mixed drinks and its lightness makes it perfect for a highball, especially now as the days are getting warmer and we can drink outdoors again.”

  • Equine J&B Cocktail

    Equine Cocktail

    Created by Peter Lidstone for The Cocktail Trading Company

    Ingredients: J&B Rare, a ginger earl grey infusion and a fresh sage and light white wine cordial.

    “J&B Rare lends itself well to Equine because its well-balanced palate can stand up to the more potent flavours of ginger and sage whilst also complimenting the cocktail by adding lighter, fruitier and nutty notes of its own.”

  • Passion Fruit Ice Tea J&B cocktail

    Passion Fruit Iced Tea Cocktail

    Created by the team at The Vault at Milroy’s Soho

    Ingredients: J&B Rare, Yerba matte cordial and passion fruit.

    “After tasting J&B Rare for the first time, these incredible notes of candied apples and warming citrus came through. The aim was to pair those homely woody notes with these sharp citrus bursts coming from the acids in fresh passion fruit & Yerba matte tea to give a truly delicate, fresh and fruity taste. Especially during times like these, I really wanted to give people that beach experience without needing to even step out of your kitchen.”
