Boutique Bar Show: New Products on Show

Boutique Bar Show has everything you could possibly ask for this year…

…including the opportunity to try some brand new products to hit the UK bar market. BarLifeUK has picked a few to whet your appetite for what’s in store:

ish Gin – The Poshmakers – Stand number 21

It's a bottle-ish....

A new London Dry Gin to hit the shelves, ish Gin is sticking close to its roots with the twist being an extra shot of juniper.

Hand crafted in small batches in the heart of London and made from all British grain, ish Gin is distilled in a traditional pot still at Thames Distillers by Master Distiller Charles Maxwell whose family boast the longest history of gin making in the UK.

Using the highest quality grain spirit, ish is infused with the taste and aromas of its eleven selected botanicals – juniper, coriander seed, angelica root, almond, orris root, nutmeg, cinnamon, cassia, liquorice, lemon peel and orange peel.

It is refreshing to see a new gin launched into the market without any ‘experimental’ or ‘unusual’ botanicals to catch the headlines, just that extra shot of juniper, which is after all what gin is all about.

Old Grog Rum – Windward Trading – Stand number 16

Old Grog Rum

For the first time at any show in the UK Old Grog Rum will be available for you lucky people to try.

From the distillery at Clarke’s Court on Grenada which has been producing fine rums for many years comes Old Grog Rum. This rum has a great history behind it and maintains Grenada’s tradition of producing some of the finest blend rums.

Not only will Old Grog be available but the newly released #37 will also be there. We know you love rum so pop by and say hello and try these two great products.

Rigg’s Shrub – Eager Drinks – Stand number 37

Rigg's Shrub available at the show

The Shrub category has been reinvigorated of late and here is your chance to try Rigg’s Shrub – an alcoholic Shrub cordial.

The history of the Shrub is interwoven with that of rum and as such it is no surprise that this category is back in favour. Whilst most shrubs are either non-alcoholic or low in alcohol the history of shrubs finds that they were often much higher in alcohol and it is this historical version that Rigg’s brings you.

With a background in producing high quality fruit juices Rigg’s have the expertise to make a fantastic product and you will no doubt see us on their stand trying it out ourselves.

Wooden Hand Brewery – CASK Liquid Marketing – Stand number 2

A great looking range

After all those spirits you might be in need of a refreshing beer and CASK are here to help you out with their Wooden Hand beers.

The Wooden Hand Brewery is based down in Truro in Cornwall and brew cask conditioned beers. There are six beers in the range – Pirates Gold, Cornish Buccaneer, Black Pearl, Cornish Mutiny, Cornish Gribben and Cornish Steam Lager.

We are particularly looking forward to the Pirates Gold and Cornish Steam Lager however it looks like there is something in the range to suit you no matter what your mood.

There are obviously many more fantastic products to try at the Boutique Bar Show but hopefully this snapshot will give you a little taste. If you haven’t already registered to attend simply jump on the website we will see you there or for more info on the show go here.
