Thinking outside the glass

The book contains recipes from mixologists in Scotland and beyond

THE producer of Caorunn Gin is hoping to educate and inspire with a new book containing a collection of cocktails from leading bartenders in Scotland and across the globe.

The Caorunn Cocktail Collection saw the craft gin team link up with drinks connoisseurs, Difford’s Guide, to select the serves, which were created by over 120 mixologists from bars in Scotland and further afield, including the likes of New York and Singapore.

Recipes from Scotland include the Blythswood Square Punch; created by bartender Eduards Trom Mcuks, it is described as a “spicy drink from Glasgow”.

Each cocktail featured in the book is said to be easy to make and is accompanied by expert industry knowledge, insight on balancing flavours and simple to follow tips.

Caorunn’s master distiller, Simon Buley, said the aim of the new book is to “bring to life and, importantly, also record some fantastic Caorunn cocktails which have at their very heart our patient craftsmanship”.
