Simply put: people love great cocktails. Nothing signifies a night out quite like the experience of a perfect cocktail made by an expert bartender and enjoyed with close friends. Yet, when entertaining at home, many hosts opt for wine or a basic spirit and mixer, because they are easier to make and serve—that is, until now. Beginning May 1st, Batch & Bottle will be available nationwide to simplify the home cocktail experience with three simple steps: chill, pour & garnish.
Batch & Bottle, a range of four premium, pre-batched, ready-to-serve cocktails, features some of the world’s most iconic spirits brands and brings bar-ready cocktails directly into the home, effortlessly elevating any hosting occasion. Created by the family-owned, independent spirits company William Grant & Sons, Batch & Bottle marks the parent company’s first major foray into the Ready-To-Drink (RTD) cocktail space.
Made with meticulous attention to detail, the Batch & Bottle offerings include the Monkey Shoulder Lazy Old Fashioned, the brainchild of Joe Petch, the Monkey Shoulder Global Ambassador; the Reyka Rhubarb Cosmopolitan, which leverages the Icelandic glacial vodka and unique ingredients to create a reimagined twist on the classic cosmopolitan; the Glenfiddich Scotch Manhattan, which includes the secret ‘Granny Gordon’s bitters’ recipe for a cocktail that cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world; and the Hendrick’s Gin Martini, created by Ms. Lesley Gracie, the Hendrick’s Master Distiller, in collaboration with five of the world’s best bars—Brujas, Nutmeg & Clove, Yaldy, Maybe Sammy, and Nauticus—to deliver a light, yet intriguingly complex flavor.
With a range suitable for different tastes, moods and occasions, Batch & Bottle allows consumers to elevate a date night for two, a dinner party for 20, or anything in between. All consumers have to do is simply chill, pour and add the appropriate cocktail garnish to enjoy.
More information on each of the four Batch & Bottle expressions is below:
- Monkey Shoulder Lazy Old Fashioned: An Old Fashioned should be no-nonsense. So what better malt for the job than one that’s made for mixing? The Monkey Shoulder Lazy Old Fashioned combines Monkey Shoulder Scotch Whisky’s rich, vibrant and smooth blend with bold, bespoke bitters and golden sugar to give imbibers a legendary Old Fashioned.
- Glenfiddich Scotch Manhattan: The mighty Manhattan needs a mighty Scotch. So Batch & Bottle chose a bold contender: Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch Whisky. This bright and balanced single malt soothes the sharp bitters and envelops the sweet vermouth, creating a cocktail both bold and delicate.
- Reyka Rhubarb Cosmopolitan: Fans can plummet into adventurous Icelandic depths with this playful Reyka Rhubarb Cosmopolitan. The glacial Reyka Vodka, made of Iceland, mingles natural rhubarb, tangy blood orange and zingy fresh lime to create an eruption of Icelandic intrigue.
