Edinburgh Gin is launching a service to transform cupboard ingredients into easy-to-make cocktails this weekend.

Thanks to lockdown, many of us are missing the joy of a well-made cocktail in our favourite bar come the end of the week. Now, with the launch of a new service by Edinburgh Gin, it’s possible to create the perfect tipple without leaving the house in search of more ingredients.

Beginning this Wednesday (8th April) and taking place over the next three weeks, the gin brand is asking people to share ingredients from their own fridge, pantry, drinks cupboard, or fruit bowl – following which, a master mixologist will turn them into a bespoke cocktail recipe to enjoy this weekend.

How does it work?

Every week, fifty people will be chosen to receive recipes and the five best drinks will feature in a ‘how to’ video roundup, to be released on Edinburgh Gin’s Instagram and Facebook pages on Friday.

Those who participate are also in with a chance of winning Edinburgh Gin goodies.

“Edinburgh Gin was born from a love of flavour, so we wanted to help people explore different tastes and ingredients, easily found at home, to create delicious drinks, said Neil Boyd, managing director of Edinburgh Gin.

"Made especially for those who take part, the recipes also allow us to celebrate the wonder of bartenders. We’re looking forward to our mixologist adding their magic to ordinary kitchen items."

How to take part

To take part, people can either comment on Edinburgh Gin’s Instagram and Facebook pages, or post a picture of ingredients using the hashtag #CupboardCocktail.

The brand will also donate £1 from every purchase made via their online store to the UK drinks industry charity, The Drinks Trust, which provides care and support to the UK drinks industry workforce.
