Luxurious Portable Drinks Cabinet Launched by Demijohn

The Drinks Chest
What better way to take all your favourite tipples from fireside to lochside than with a portable drinks cabinet? The Demijohn Drinks Chest is ideal for taking a portable party to the races, fishing or onto the moors.

Hand made in Cumbria, from oak with strong leather handles, it contains eight bottles of top quality hand-made small batch Demijohn liqueurs; two 500ml cube shaped bottles for the owner’s very favourite drinks and six smaller 100ml bottles the same attractive shape.

The sturdily constructed, yet easily carried, cabinet can be supplied with either 10 tumblers on two trays of five, or with a single tray of 14 elegant shot glasses.

The Standard Edition Drinks Chest is delivered with its 8 bottles filled with some of Demijohn’s most popular liqueurs, including 500ml of both Bramble Scotch Whisky Liqueur 23% and Seville Orange Gin 26%, and 100mls each of Rhubarb Vodka Liqueur 20.5%, Sloe Gin 22%, Spiced Rum Liqueur 20%, Gooseberry Gin Liqueur 17%, Morello Cherry Brandy Liqueur 17% and Toffee Whisky Liqueur 20%.

The Drinks Chest is for sale with any selection of drinks from Demijohn’s unique range of handmade British drinks, including Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

A stylish practical addition to a sporting or social event in the British countryside, it also looks great displayed on a sideboard or table instantly giving a room the irresistible promise of abundant hospitality!

The Drinks Chest’s combination of traditional materials and modern functionality are the result of 10 years of development of portable drinks cabinets which started before the launch of Demijohn’s much-loved Sporting Box back in 2009.

The Drinks ChestUnique to Demijohn, the Drinks Chest is designed and crafted by British Cabinet Makers in Cumbria from properly seasoned Oak sourced only from the UK and Europe.

Bespoke versions are also available with personalised engraving on both the lid or sides of the chest and on the glasses. For shoots, both the tumblers and the shot glasses can be supplied with peg numbers on the bottom.

Demijohn owner, Angus Ferguson said: “We are just a little excited about the launch of our new Drinks Chest and for very good reason. It is the culmination of many hours of thought, design and planning and is a unique example of the very best of British craftsmanship. We are supporting an increasingly rare rural industry in Cumbria with its production, and that makes me proud. Within its every grain there is beauty and cleverness that complements our range of handmade British drinks perfectly. Our Drinks Chest has been designed not only to be used regularly, but to survive and be enjoyed by many generations of owners long into the future.”

The Drinks Chest will be unveiled for the first time at the Scottish Game Fair at Scone Palace from 29th June to 1st July.

The Drinks Chest Standard Edition costs £975, including eight liqueurs and can be order online.

Prices are offered on application for bespoke versions filled with alternative Demijohn drinks or requiring engraving.
