The UK’s leading cocktail letterbox delivery company, NIO Cocktails, has launched a new limited-edition bourbon whiskey cocktail box, in collaboration with Rebel Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey, just in time for Father’s Day, 20th June 2021. Available exclusively from niococktails.co.uk.
The box includes four expertly crafted whiskey cocktails inspired by the rebellious spirit of Rebel Bourbon, who, in 1849, pioneered the wheat-based bourbon recipe defying the preferred rye mash bill process, popular in Kentucky at the time. The perfect gift for brazenly bold, adventurous dad’s this Father’s Day:
- Espression 100ml, 28.8%: A play on words of the well-loved Espresso Martini, Espression is a decadent pairing of Rebel Bourbon, smoked almond liqueur, coffee, and bittersweet vermouth – perfect for slow digestif sipping.
- Tenacious 100ml, 27.4%: If your dad is a sake fan, he’ll love this unique pairing of smooth Rebel Bourbon mixed with spicy Rebel Straight Rye and hearty Oloroso sherry, perfectly blended with dry Umeshu (a Japanese plum wine) and banana liqueur – an unforgettable flavour explosion inspired by East Asian cuisine.
- Explorer 100ml, 28.4%: A fruity infusion of fig and cherry, combined with smooth Rebel Bourbon, botanical rich Rosso vermouth and a dash of balsamic vinegar for a slightly bitter finish.
- Pioneer 100ml, 32.3%: A true adventure in flavour, pioneer is a compendium of tastes from across the globe, with notes of crimson saffron, cumin seeds and pink pepper, rounded out with vermouth Bianco. Pair it with an Italian antipasto board of cured meats and cheeses for a taste of la bella vita.
“We’re delighted to be working with Rebel Bourbon and their award-winning original whiskey on this collection. We wanted to celebrate the rebel attitude of bravery, freedom of expression, and a pioneering spirit by telling a story through flavour innovation. Each of the four cocktails has a unique yet balanced profile, taking you on an exploration of flavours from across the world, creating new cocktail experiences. These cocktails embody creativity and are perfect for anyone brave and bold enough to try something new, with a cocktail to suit every palate,” said NIO Cocktails master mixologist Patrick Pistolesi.
