The aromatic, spicy cocktail in question is perfect for both Jubilee street parties and small get-togethers alike. It features a special mix of Dubonnet (a wine-based aperitif created in Paris in 1846) paired with gin - and if it has the royal seal of approval, it certainly has ours!

Dubonnet, which is a proud Royal Warrant holder, was awarded ‘Purveyor of Aperitifs’ in 2021. Made with a special variety of red and white grapes and blended with carefully selected herbs and spices such as chamomile, the aperitif is naturally smooth and provides a carefully balanced bitterness to offset any intense sweetness. Mmm!
