Brewdog is a common name for beer. Brewdog was a pioneer in craft beer and quickly rose to be the UK’s biggest independent brewery. Nearly a decade later, Scotland’s first carbon-negative distillery was constructed next to their brewery in Ellon, just a few minutes north of Aberdeen.
It was easy: make charismatic spirits from scratch, and give people a true glass-to-glass experience. In 2017, vodka and gin were the first to go on sale. Rum followed shortly after. Soon whisky will launch, including one the first rye whiskies produced in modern times by a Scottish distillery. It is currently maturing slowly in a Highland warehouse and waiting for its release.
Brewdog’s product line is diverse and versatile. Every category bottled to date, including vodka, spiced Rum and Gin, has both classic and flavor variants to suit a wide range of tastes. Cactus & Lime Gin, Cherry & Dark Chocolate Rum, the refreshing and crisp Rhubarb. There is something for everyone.
Brewdog spirits are perfect for every occasion because of their diversity. This is especially true in the warmer and longer summer evenings. A Platinum Jubilee party? Have a barbecue or garden party with your family and friends. You might also need a bottle for your beach trip picnic. Brewdog Spirits has it all.
You only need two things to make these situations work: simple, easy-to-find ingredients and refreshing cocktail recipes. If you’re catering to a large group, time is crucial. These three delicious drinks will bring summer vibes to your event and impress everyone.
The Gin Mule
The botanical properties of the gin give this version of the vodka cocktail more depth. This one is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
In a tall, highball glass, pour two cups of Brewdog Lone Wolf Original Gin (made with Scots pine and Tuscan juniper), and half a cup of fresh lime juice. Add the ginger beer and ice cubes. Garnish the dish with a mint sprig.
Add some crushed mint leaves to give your drink an extra wow factor. Tip: rub them in your hands before adding the gin. For a mojito-style cocktail, stir well before adding the ginger beer and ice. It is refreshing and delicious.
The Spiced Rum Watermelon Cooler
The rich flavour of spiced rum is perfectly complemented by the sweet, juicy watermelon. Summer 2022 will be a hot season for spiced rum.
You will need 1.5 ml of Brewdog 500 Spiced Rum and 2 ml of watermelon juice. (tip: Simply blend some watermelon in your blender, and strain the juice to remove any pulp). Add the rum to a tumbler and then add the melon juice. Add lime seltzer to the top. Add a few mint leaves and a small watermelon slice to garnish.
You can also make a large batch. Divide each ingredient by how many servings you need, and keep in the fridge. Pour as soon as you see people to add some drama. This is a refreshing summer drink that’s bright and fresh.
Pineapple Vodka Sunrise
This is a stunning twist on the classic two-tone tequila sunrise. It’s perfect for long summer nights. This will transport you quickly to a beach.
Brewdog Seven Day Passionfruit and 1.5 cups of Vanilla Vodka into a tumbler. Half-fill the glass with pineapple juice. Turn the glass upside down and add some grenadine. (If you don’t have it, cranberry cordial is a great substitute). When the glass is set down, the grenadine/cordial must be on the bottom. Ice cubes are added to the glass. Garnish with a slice or pineapple. Instant tropical delight.
