Our Cocktail Club members will be shaking up two types of deliciously refreshing gin cocktails – perfect for the warm weather!
This month’s featured spirit is 6 O’clock gin, a juniper-led gin with a rich history dating back to the mid-1980s.
First created in the kitchen of the Bramley and Gage family, by Edward Bramley Kain and Penelope Gage, the gin was created after the family began creating fruit liqueurs with surplus fruits from their farm.
Following the success of the liqueurs, the family decided to make further use of the abundance of sloe berries in their hedges and created their famous Sloe Gin.
Nearly 30 years since the first bottle of liqueur was made, the distillery is now run by Penelope and Edward’s son and daughter who launched 6 O’clock Gin in 2010 as a refinement of the gin that the family had made for years as the basis for their sloe gin.
6 O’clock gin gained its name from the great-grandfather of Head Distiller Edward Kain, who was an engineer, inventor and world explorer. Travelling to exotic countries regularly, he required anti-malarial medication and 6 o’clock is believed to be the time he drank the tonic.
Will you be able to wait until 6 o’clock for your cocktails?

As Summer is in the air, our first cocktail is a classic sun-kissed sip.
Already a Wimbledon tradition, and almost as famous as strawberries and cream, the Summer Fruit Cup was first invented by James Pimm, creator of the famous summer liqueur.
Our twist features a luxurious slider to create a summer sipping masterpiece - the Summer Fruit Cup!
Our second cocktail really is the bee’s knees…
Introducing our Elderflower Buzz - combining the sweet and refreshing flavours of elderflower, quince, honey and lemon with gin. Encapsulating sunshine in a glass, elderflower is perfectly complemented with white fruits so what better alternative than quince? Featured in our June Cocktail Club box, quince is most closely related to pears and apples. Grown on small trees, the fruit is tough and bitter until cooked when the flesh turns pink and mellows into a smooth sweetness.

Alongside our specially curated cocktails, this month’s box also includes a bespoke Gintensify infusion!
Launched in 2017, Gintensify was created by founder Carole Sommerville, after she became increasingly dissatisfied with the poor quality ‘tonic and slice of citrus’ traditionally served up alongside gin.
Following several months of experimenting, she created a unique range of ready-to-serve fruit and botanical fusions, each one designed to bring out the most of your gin.
Our bespoke Gintensify infusion is the perfect cocktail companion for our Fruit Summer Cup - adding the final touch and finishing garnish without the effort!
