On Wednesday 14th August we were delighted to attend The Ivy Norwich Brasserie’s 1st birthday celebrations, with amazing canapés and Champagne orchestrated by Wayne, the General Manager, and attended by many of Norfolk’s finest guests.

The celebrations continued well into the evening and we took the opportunity of enjoying a special ‘City of Stories’ cocktail, created by The Ivy’s amazing mixologists. Seriously delicious (containing Boadicea® Gin Rosa) and accompanied by a poem from local poet Helen Ivory.

Awards, awards, awards!

We were delighted and honoured to have recently been awarded medals from The IWSC – The International Wine and Spirits Competition for our Boadicea® Gin – Classic edition and our Nelson’s Gold® caramelised English vodka, plus we received a starred medal for Nelson’s Gold from The Guild of Fine Food in their Great Taste Awards.

Next year we will enter more of our spirits as the competitions are a real benchmark of quality but as they are quite expensive to enter, we only entered two of our spirits into the IWSC and one in Great Taste, so it was incredible to achieve medals, particularly as only 37% of entries in Great Taste achieved an award.

Here’s to 2020! And (hopefully) more awards.

Merchants Heart stand at Imbibe 2019.jpg

1 -2 July 2019

This year was the 10th anniversary of Imbibe Live – the trade event held in Olympia, London, aimed at sommeliers, buyers, managers, publicans, bartenders and every on/off trade in-between! See https://live.imbibe.com/

We were delighted and honoured to be asked by Merchant’s Heart to join the team on their stand to showcase our Boadicea® Gin Rosa, our brand-new pink gin.

Rosa pairs perfectly with Merchant’s Heart Hibiscus Spirit Enhancer (can be found in Sainsburys) and we call it ‘The Ultimate Pink G&T’ cocktail:

The Ultimate Pink G&T.

  • 50 ml Boadicea Gin Rosa

  • 50 ml Merchant’s Heart Hibiscus Spirit Enhancer

  • Fresh cherry to garnish

Add 2 cubes of ice to a Coupe glass or a handful of frozen raspberries, add Boadicea Gin Rosa, then tonic – we use Merchant’s Heart Hibiscus Spirit Enhancer. Garnish and enjoy.

After Imbibe we enjoyed a wonderful evening with the Merchant’s Heart team at The House of St Barnabas, a new kind of private members’ club in the heart of Soho, London.

Thanks Merchant’s Heart.
