Buck & Birch launch ready-to-drink bottled cocktails
Buck & Birch, Scotland’s leading wild food and drinks innovators and creators of award-winning liqueur Aelder Elixir, have developed a selection of limited edition, ready-to-drink wild cocktails.
Created in response to the current shutdown of the hospitality trade, the Buck & Birch team wanted to give consumers premium, bar quality drinks to enjoy at home without needing the equipment, skills and wide array of ingredients usually associated with cocktail making.
There are currently six flavours of the bottled cocktails available, with many more seasonal offerings in development. There are wild twists on classics, such as the Aelder Sour, Amarosa Old Fashioned, Espresso MartAna and the Thornstar, whilst others are brand new creations like the (Rowan) Atkinson and the Dandy Lion. All are crafted using fresh wild ingredients and represent Scotland and its seasons.
Each 150ml cocktail bottle provides two serves and cocktails can be purchased on their own or as part of Buck & Birch’s Signature gift pack combining three cocktails, or the Adventurer Pack containing five cocktails (three signature cocktails plus two additional flavours).
Thomas Chisholm, director of Buck and Birch, commented, “With much of the hospitality industry currently on hold and many people spending the Summer at home, we wanted to give people quality drinks to enjoy with minimal hassle.
“The ethos of the Buck and Birch has always been to capture the essence of our ingredients and surroundings in their wild state and elevate them into world class offerings to be shared and enjoyed. Every element of the new range has been carefully considered to give the best experience to the customer, from branding and packaging to the recipe and serving suggestion. In absence of being able to go to a bar or restaurant at the moment we want to bring some of that sophistication and elegance into the home whilst capturing a real flavour of the wild too – it’s wilderness refined.”
