The Perfect Serve

There are many ways to enjoy our spirits – and a classic gin and tonic is a great place to start.

For the perfect Blowing Stone London Dry gin and tonic, mix approximately three parts tonic to one part gin and garnish with pink grapefruit or a citrus segment such as lime or orange. We always recommend using a great premium tonic such as Fever Tree or Franklin’s in a Copa glass with plenty of ice.

The only thing left to do is join your friends and enjoy!

Please drink responsibly.

If you’re feeling more adventurous, we’ve developed some great cocktails with our partners below.
