A subtle nose with wood aroma characteristics shining through. Herbal flavour on the palate combining with botanicals and pine characteristics, into a full-bodied palate with lingering sweetness balancing with the bitterness. A lovely bittersweet character with a good amount of gin.
A tiny tin, pocket-sized indeed, but one which contains a delicious ready mixed negroni, made with Porter’s gin, a bitter aperitif and sweet vermouth. Punchy at over 20% abv, it’s an intense and well-made alternative to making your own.
Is this not the cutest canned cocktail you’ve ever laid eyes on? There’s a good reason why it’s so dinky, and it’s not just so it fits in your pocket — at 21.8% ABV, it packs a hella punch! Made with Porter’s bitter, Campari and sweet vermouth, it tastes just like a boozy blood orange.
BEST NEGRONI IN A CAN
The post-work negroni is one of life’s great pleasures. And as cocktails go, it’s not the most complicated, with just three ingredients — but you try combining gin, vermouth and Campari in the park. This ready-to-drink can has done it for you, delivering an expertly made full-strength single-serve for on the go.
You’ll no doubt have seen this little pocket rocket clogging up your Instagram feed (or annoyingly littering your local park), and there’s a reason it’s taken us al fresco drinkers by storm. It’s dinky but full-strength (so go steady), and is made with Porter’s cold-distilled gin, Campari and vermouth — just like you’d make at home.
The only canned cocktail I have tried that unequivocally tastes of the drink it purports to be. Cute can, too. I commend its creators.
