Drinks Distilled Launch Collaboration With Crossip & Seed Library
Drinking in moderation has become a movement that extends beyond Dry January, with many choosing to substitute alcohol for lower ABV alternatives throughout the year. But just because you want to drink mindfully, it doesn't mean you have to sacrifice on a flavourful experience.
Non-alcoholic spirits brand CROSSIP know this better than anyone, which is why we're excited to announce that we've teamed up with them and east London cocktail bar Seed Library to help get you into the moderation mindset for 2023, both in-bar and at home!
Our Moderation Menu and Surplus Cobbler cocktail kit launched on 11th January.
Introducing the Moderation Menu
With the help of CROSSIP, we've curated a limited-edition Moderation Menu in partnership with and Seed Library Floor Manager La'Mel Clarke.
Focusing on the award-winning CROSSIP Dandy Smoke, the menu will encourage you to explore a full spectrum of no, low and reduced alcohol serves, inspired by Seed Library's sustainable and seasonal approach to cocktail creation.
What's more, guests who've booked the cocktail experience will be treated to a complimentary Drinks Distilled tote bag containing the ingredients and recipe cards to recreate the cocktails at home. They'll also get exclusive 15% discount codes for Drinks Distilled and Seed Library!
The Moderation Menu will be available for a limited time only from 11th January until 31st January. Book your table at Seed Library for the event on their website.
THE SURPLUS COBBLER KIT
To celebrate the collaboration, we've created a cocktail gift set based around one of La'Mel's reduced alcohol serves, the Surplus Cobbler. Ideal for those of you who are inspired to make it a permanent part of your cocktail repertoire, can't make it to the bar, or want to treat the moderate drinkers in your life!
Housed in our Drinks Distilled gift box and complete with a free recipe card, the kit will be a permanent fixture on our site and contains the basics you'll need to enjoy the serve, including:
- Full-sized bottles of CROSSIP Dandy Smoke and El Tequileño Blanco
- A sachet of Rare Tea Co. Chinese White Silver Tips Tea
- Our Timeless Rocks glass, jigger and spoon
Our new collaboration focuses on exploring the flavour profile of CROSSIP Dandy Smoke, handpicked by Drinks Distilled Spirits Guide La'Mel Clarke who describes it as:
"A smoky yet sweet spirit with an incredible amount of texture and flavour for non-alcoholic option. Whilst it hasn’t been designed to mimic alcoholic spirits, it’s a great alternative for fans of dark, smoky spirits when served with or without ice. Don’t let that deter you though, it’s so versatile that it also works as a flavourful ingredient for mixing into long cocktails, with or without alcohol."
CROSSIP is a unique range of concentrated, non-alcoholic, macerated spirits with a potent kick to enhance your mixers or cocktails. Founded in 2020 by cocktail expert Carl Anthony Brown, who was driven to design a better tasting alcohol-free drink, the range is inspired by his love for cocktails, passion for fitness and support for mental health issues.
