Hawksmoor at Home launches delivery cocktails across Scotland
This week Hawksmoor extended their ‘at home’ range with a selection of cocktails available to order for delivery across Scotland.
Hawksmoor’s Cocktails at Home range is inspired by the godfather of modern bartending, Jerry Thomas, who in 1862 wrote that bottled cocktails are well suited to ‘fishing and other sporting parties, although some patients insist [on them] in the morning as a tonic’.
Hawksmoor decided to channel this lineage, bottling and canning a few cocktails of their own. Some drinks are new, others are much-loved classics.
All are mixed with love and contain sprezzatura, an old Italian word that means ‘concealed artistry’.
Bottled Cocktails at Home range features four drinks, each serving two people (200ml) and priced between £12 and £14 and £48 for a set of all four, perfect for a cocktail night in while hospitality is unable to serve alcohol in Scotland.
The canned range of Cocktails at Home, also numbering four, are single serve and can only be purchased as a set for just £28.
Bottled cocktails available to purchase for delivery are their Ultimate Dry Martini, Sour Cherry Negroni, Fuller-fat Old Fashioned and a Hepple Gimlet.
While their canned cocktail range offers a Ginza Highball, Hawksmoor Calling – a remix of the Hawksmoor Collins, a spicy margarita called Back Burner and a 20/20 Cosmo.
Hand-drawn illustrations on bottles and cans are courtesy of long-time Hawksmoor collaborators SAINT design.
They are inspired by different eras of cocktails’ past, from a simple Arts and Crafts-style Martini cockerel to the fun and frivolous neon ‘80s parrots on the 20/20 Cosmo and Back Burner cans.
To order, you can do so from the Hawksmoor website.
