Rhubarb & Ginger, a mischievous pair....

Rhubarb & Ginger, a mischievous pair....

Rhubarb and Ginger could very well be the names of your dog and your cat. However, it is not. This is a beautiful set of delicious drinks contained within our newly returned Ying & Yang 200ml bottles. Our smooth Organic Rhubarb Vodka Liqueur 20.5% and fiery Ginger Wine 14% can both be drunk separately. Mix them together, with a little ice, and you make our simple yet irresistible Carrie MaK Cocktail. No wonder then that this is a popular set for a present. If you are needing an idea for Mothering Sunday on 30th March, then this could very possibly be it?

To ensure the safe and timely delivery of any order prior to Mother's Day, please place your order before Mon 24th March 2014 to take advantage of our free standard UK Mainland delivery offer for orders over £40.
