While travelling has been off the cards for most of us this year, Opihr is hoping to transport gin lovers to exotic climes – and fill a hole left by the latest UK hospitality shutdown – with its new cocktail kits.
The UK-based spiced gin brand recently launched its Regional Editions range – three gins taking inspiration from stops along the Ancient Spice Route, including Europe, the Far East and Arabia. To celebrate the launch, it has also created bespoke winter-style cocktails for each gin.
And it doesn’t stop there: the brand has teamed up with Amazon to deliver cocktail kits to customers’ door, with everything you need to create one of its new recipes. To get your kit, search for Opihr’s Cocktail Voyager on Amazon and simply select the cocktail you want to add the ingredients to your basket.
Can’t wait to get stuck into these cocktails? Check out the recipes below:
