The foundation of any good drink’s cabinet is a range of spirits and liqueurs – with a well-stocked bar you’ll be able to whip up all manner of cocktails, find a drink to suit all tastes and round off a dinner party with a tempting Irish coffee. All alcohol is made by a process of fermentation, but spirits have two key differences.
Firstly, they’re distilled – a process which separates out the water, and secondly, they have a higher alcohol content as a result of this distillation process.
Liqueurs – while still part of the spirits family - have sugars and flavourings added to them. At The Drinks Basket we pride ourselves on the range of spirits and liqueurs that we offer to our customers. Whether you’re after the fruity tang of a peach Schnapps , the warmth of a spiced rum or a smooth and sophisticated gin cocktail we have everything you could possibly need and more. We also carry plenty of aperitif options – the perfect preclusion to a meal and way to gently stimulate the appetite. Campari may be one of the most well-known aperitifs but it’s by no means the only one. We also stock a range of other pre-dinner choices including Aperol and Pernod. When it comes to making cocktails you’ll want a wide range of flavourings to create everything from the perfect Singapore Sling (make sure to order the Grenadine and Angostura Bitters) to the crowd-pleasing Margarita (which requires a healthy dash of cointreau).
We stock just about every flavour of syrup and mixer you could possible imagine – from Anise and Black Forest to Lavender, Pistachio and Chai Tea. If you fancy creating your own bespoke cocktail the only limit is your imagination. You’ll also find a range of ready to drink cans including Jack Daniels and Coke, Gordon’s Pink Gin & Tonic and Absolut Mixt Blueberry & Lime.
