It’s getting cold out there as the dark winter nights start to draw in. So, what better way to warm you up, than a full bodied liqueur which will set your tastebuds on fire.
Scottish based and the world’s first liquid deli, Demijohn has re-launched their original starting drink, the Bramble Scotch Whisky Liqueur, and it’s better than ever.
It was first concocted in 2004 by two retired PE teachers in a bath and the drink helped this popular firm on the road to success.
After 16 years of making the liqueur, the inventors retired and left an empty space on the shelf.
Nick and Erin Bullard from the Moffat Distillery accepted the challenge to re-brand the drink and the newly created beauty is hitting the shelves ready for Christmas.
The port-liked drink is fruity and sweet and a delight to drink and is delicious with a cheese board or as a base for Demijohn cocktails such as the Fruity Highlander with ginger wine or the Demijohn Wibble.
2022 has been a bumper year for hedge grown brambles and despite the extreme natural sweetness of locally foraged fruit, the finished drink is sharp enough to be enjoyed by non-whisky and whisky drinkers alike.
Angus Ferguson, owner of Demijohn, said:
“The return of our founding drink is massively exciting; it feels like a fresh start. Bramble Scotch Whisky Liqueur, with its perfect balance of flavour, has been a hugely popular part of our range since 2004. I love it with a piece of cheese after supper and is it great as a nip from a hipflask in the Winter. Nick and Erin are drinks magicians and have drawn on their understanding of all things whisky to create a masterpiece. This is also a magnificent example of our two local Scottish businesses working together to achieve reinforced success. A big cheers to that!”
Bramble Scotch Whisky Liqueur, 18% is bottled in a range of distinctive refillable Demijohn bottles and available to purchase by mail order via Demijohn’s website at: www.demijohn.co.uk.
