We’ve teamed up with our friends at Luscombe Drinks and master mixologist Louis Xavier Lewis-Smith to create a signature Christmas cocktail that is guaranteed to ensure your festive season is full of spirit.

Louis has been creating cocktails for over twenty years now, from his early days at the prestigious Milk & Honey before going on to set up his own cocktail bar The Dark Horse in Bath (winner of Top 10 Cocktail Bars in the World) and Crying Wolf Bar in Bristol.
Combining the warmth of ginger and rum, the sweetness of honey and chestnuts and a
zing of lime, ‘Open Fire’ will warm the heart of even the most Scrooge like characters this Christmas.
