Suffolk brewer and distiller Adnams has added a new triple sec to its range of small-batch spirits and liqueurs.
The limited-edition liqueur is made from bitter and sweet orange peel steeped in the company’s premium Longshore Vodka and then redistilled before bottling at 41% ABV.
The classic-style liqueur is inspired by the 19th-century original triple secs and is designed to be an ingredient in cocktails including classics such as a Margarita and Cosmopolitan or for serving over ice.
It is the latest product to emerge from the Adnams Copper House Distillery in Suffolk which has won acclaim for its gins and vodkas and unveiled its first whiskies at the end of last year.
Head distiller John McCarthy said: “The Adnams Triple Sec is a beautiful liqueur and a fantastic addition to any cocktail cabinet. Made with both bitter and sweet orange, we steep the peel in Adnams’ premium Longshore Vodka and then re-distil it in small batches in a copper pot still.
“This gives us an intensely sweet and fruity flavour as well as wonderful notes of fresh orange, which is just fantastic. With only a limited supply available, we don’t anticipate it will be around for long.”
The liqueur features a bottle design created by CookChick Design in Brighton. Its founder and owner Lee Cook said: “Adnams gave us a very open design brief for the Triple Sec allowing our creativity to run riot to develop something really fun and progressive.
“The design combines all the characteristics of the liqueur within Adnams’ coastal cool brand image. It offers a gentle nod to the golden age of cocktails, featuring the classic Art Deco sun motif.
“Screen printing directly onto the glass produces a vivid and premium finish giving a true reflection of the new, fun and fresh approach that Adnams has to crafting spirits.”
The 70cl bottles, which are available now for the on-trade, are being sold in retail for £29.99 via adnams.co.uk and in Adnams Cellar & Kitchen stores.
