Harvey Nichols launches pre-mixed cocktails

Luxury department store Harvey Nichols has launched a range of pre-mixed cocktails, which includes an Old Fashioned, Vesper Martini and a Negroni.

Capitalising on the growing trend for bottled cocktails, the Old Fashioned is made with a base of Old Forester Kentucky Straight Bourbon, which is blended with Fee’s Brother’s Aromatic Bitters, orange oil and muscovado sugar.

The Vesper Martini features Portobello Road Gin, Fair Vodka, Lillet Blanc and a dash of lemon oil, while the Negroni has been handmade in small batches using Portobello Road Gin, Italian sweet Vermouth and Campari.

“We are thrilled to be adding a range of pre-mixed cocktails to our own-label spirit category. After months of testing to create the perfect flavour profiles of three classics, we are very happy with the outcome.

“We have also been working on a fourth cocktail, a festiveBlood Orange and Clove Negroni, which will be launching at Christmas,” said Rob Graves, head of food and drink buying at Harvey Nichols.

The trio have gone on sale at all Harvey Nichols stores and online, and are priced at £6 for a 100ml serve and £35 for 700ml.
