So when drinking this cocktail please raise a toast to those brave men and women of The Highlanders who serve for us.

The Crumble Martini Cocktail was first created by our Glasgow Shop Team in December 2017. If you like the idea of Rhubarb or Bramble crumble, and have a quiet hunger for the odd Martini Cocktail, then we urge you to try this unique martini variation. Be warned, Martini Cocktails are devilishly strong, so drink cautiously while enjoying this potion! 

Ingredients

Preparation

Fill a martini glass with ice to cool the glass. Add your ingredients along with lots of ice to your cocktail shaker. Shake the mixture hard for around 10 to 15 seconds. Remove all ice from the martini glass and strain the drinks from the shaker into the glass.

Finally, twist a small amount peel from a fresh lime over the glass and drop into the drink to give your Crumble Martini a zesty twist.

Scottish Rose Cocktail Gift SetThe name Scottish Rose does not refer to the colour of the drink itself but rather the colour of one's cheeks after drinking it! This cocktail recipe was created for the Demijohn 2008 Staff Christmas night out by Alastair Simpson at which a cocktail competition was held between our Edinburgh and Glasgow shops. The Glasgow cocktail was called a Strawberry Moscow Mule. Although a draw was declared on the night, your comments on the success of each recipe would be much appreciated and can be posted online if witty enough!

Ingredients

The ingredients of this cocktail can be bought as our Scottish Rose Gift Set.

Preparation

Take 2 classic Martini glasses, evenly split the 1/2 measure of Demijohn's Islay Blended Malt Scotch Whisky between the 2 glasses. Tilt each glass and spin slowly to entirely coat the inside of the glass with a film of the whisky and discard the remainder. Then take a Cocktail Shaker, and fill with ice. Add 2 measures of Demijohnnie Gin 50% and a single measure of Apricot Brandy Liqueur 17%. Shake vigorously and then strain evenly into the 2 prepared glasses to remove the ice. To finish the cocktail, drop in a whole fresh bramble (blackberry) and then serve.


The Queen's Guard on parade in 2015 at Balmoral, with Cruachan IV the Regimental mascot.Highland Fuze is a long, refreshing, whisky sour cocktail drink with an explosive finish. It can quench the thirst of many on a warm Summer's evening in the most excellent way. Like all our recipes, there is a good story behind its creation.

Each year from August Her Majesty The Queen heads with her family to her Scottish home at Balmoral in Royal Deeside for her summer holidays. To protect her and provide a Guard of Honour for a number of ceremonial duties a Company of about 100 serving Scottish Infantry Soldiers are allocated the task of forming the Queen's Guard.

In 2015 this task fell to The 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland (The Royal Highland Fusiliers) of whom the Guard Commander was a personal friend.

As part of the many duties of the Queen's Guard, they are required to host a number of high profile Cocktail Parties. We were asked to create a new cocktail drink that would be suitable for such occasions.

After some tremendously fun experiments with the Officers' of the Queen's Guard and some inspired mixology based around a toffee apple from Demijohnnie Joe Rogerson, Highland Fuze was born. A cocktail drink not only delicious in taste, but also fit for Her Majesty The Queen.

Ingredients

Preparation

Choose a large tumbler style glass and add a generous quantity of ice. Squeeze in some fresh lime juice and add measures of both Toffee Whisky Liqueur and Somerset Pomona. Add a dash of Indian Tonic Water and muddle gently. Garnish with a slice of lime.

Top Tip: Highland Fuze is ideally suited to being made in larger quantities and served from a jug at your drinks parties.

This is a play on the traditional Whisky Mac Cocktail with a naughty twist at the end! The ingredients produce a deliciously warming and gingery drink with an unexpected cidery note.

Shake and serve over plenty of ice in a tumbler (rocks) glass. Garnish with a slice of fresh apple on the rim.


Atholl Brose was traditionally drunk on Burns Night in Scotland and used to sort the men from the boys! This variation of the traditionally recipe retains the oatmeal to make a cranachan type pudding to be enjoyed by all.

Ingredients

Preparation

Whip the double cream until stiff, then gently stir in the toasted pinhead oatmeal and honey. Chill and just before serving, mix in the Demijohn’s Finest Blended Scotch Whisky 40%.

Anything else I should know?

The name Atholl Brose is supposed to derive from the tale of the Duke of Atholl's capture of his enemy, the Earl of Ross, in 1475. The Duke was supposed to have filled a well, from which the Earl liked to drink, with this magical potion. Ross drank deeply and was captured.

Antica Quadra 500ml bottle of Bramble Scotch Whisky Liqueur 23%All credit for this little genius of a drink goes to our erstwhile Edinburgh Shop Manager, Alastair Simpson. Always one to appreciate a good thing, Alastair seems to have found a way of spicing up Oz Clarke's favourite liqueur from Demijohn, our Bramble Scotch Whisky Liqueur, and making a good drink even better. The rich fruity taste of Brambles (or Blackberrys) in the liqueur make this drink seriously fruity with a bloody big punch of whisky!

Ingredients

Preparation

Shake and serve in Boston shot glasses.
