Drinksfusion launches curated cocktail boxes delivered straight to your door to enjoy at home
Described as the Rolls Royce of cocktail boxes, the newly launched drinksfusion curated and handcrafted mixology boxes are now available to order online – along with a newly released, limited edition box containing one of the world’s rarest Nordic berry infusions.
Three boxes are being launched by drinksfusion, the luxury drinks catering company founded by Johan Svensson who has a reputation for being one of the best cocktail gurus in the world and described as the ‘king of cocktails’ and the A-listers ‘go to’ cocktail maestro.
Normally Svensson and his team of mixologists would be at their busiest this time of year, creating sublime drinks and phenomenal cocktails to be served at events and parties held at the UK’s most prestigious venues, but due to the pandemic the company has been able to devote time to launch its bespoke mixology boxes.
Each of the three boxes reflect Svensson’s passion for creating truly unique drinks and his obsession for sourcing remarkable natural flavours. Drinks menus are seasonally inspired, with a focus on sustainability, and use expertly crafted, homemade liqueurs, aperitifs, naturally fermented sodas, cordials and shrubs. They are seasoned with hand-foraged botanicals to give each drink a distinctive character. Inside each box will be classic cocktail glasses to suit each drink, professional bar equipment and cocktail garnishes, botanicals and fruit to add a stylish and impressive finish.
Johan Svensson, founder of drinksfusion, commented:
“We’re really excited to be launching our curated mixology boxes so people can create exquisite drinks, using 100 per cent hand made products from all-natural ingredients. They are ideal for intimate get togethers with friends, family or colleagues – either in real life or something that can be done virtually.”
As well as delivering the ingredients, equipment, glasses, ice and garnish, drinksfusion provides links to a series of digital films it has created to help guide people to create the perfect cocktail, flawlessly executed each time, just like a professional.
The three boxes available to buy are:
1. The Nordic Negroni Box (Limited Edition)
Price: £125 including standard delivery nationwide
A flavour trio, crafted from the finest and rarest Nordic flora. This box provides a luxury twist on the classic Italian aperitivo, infused with precious and extremely rare Arctic berries, hand foraged in Northern Sweden. This is the northernmost, largest and least populated area, a beautiful part of the world with deep forests, vast plains and striking mountains and wilderness, often referred to as Norrland.
Each box contains three unique Negronis, infused with the wild berry treasures: Arctic Bramble, Cloudberry and Lingon & Bilberry. Cocktail creations in this limited edition box (only 500 created) include:
Nordic Negroni Arctic Bramble:
A classic Negroni blend of organic gin, Italian vermouth and bitter apéritif, infused with the elusive Arctic Bramble. The Artic Bramble berry is not widely cultivated, extremely rare and are in great demand as a delicacy by the country’s chefs because of their unique flavour. They can only be picked by hand (often using tweezers) and rinsed individually between mid-July and early August. The result: an Arctic flavour sensation and one that is not available anywhere else in the world. Delicious straight up or on the rocks!
Nordic Negroni Cloudberry:
A Nordic take on a white Negroni, using organic orange gin from the Copenhagen Distillery, rowan berry infused bitter apéritif, vermouth and Swedish ice cider, infused with wild Cloudberries, which are often referred to as the gold of the Arctic. Aged for three months in white oak barrels. This golden berry grows wild on the Nordic plains and gives a delicious tart flavour with rich honey and orange like aromas. Delicious straight up or on the rocks.
Nordic Negroni Lingon & Bilberry:
Inspired by the deep Nordic forest, this Negroni is made with Scandinavian Aquavit, Nordic flavoured vermouth and aromatic bitter apéritif infused with hand-picked lingonberries, sea buckthorn, dandelion and pine. Finished with a touch of pickled Nordic bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) known as Blåbär in Swedish. Delicious straight up or on the rocks, it offers a true taste of the Nordic woodland.
Also included is a selection of stunning garnishes to add a finishing touch along with the necessary cocktail equipment to create a perfect Nordic Negroni. Each box contains three 200ml bottles, a total of six serves.
