It's the most wonderful time of the year... as well as the most stressful. We're not talking about all the shopping for Christmas presents and organising whether you'll be at your parents' or your partner's for the big day, we mean about nailing the Christmas parties!
Choosing the right dress, getting in all your canapés, making sure your decorations are tasteful and not tacky. It's a nightmare, but Beartown Brewery has the perfect gin tipple so that you know you can still be the hostess with the mostest.
Beartown Brewery, the independent brewer, is the one-stop shop for expertly crafted beer with modern twists. But their new powerhouse gin in collaboration with Zymurgorium, The Cub, is the true festive spirit of the season.
Beartown Brewery and the Zymurgorium distillery have come together for the first time ever to create the Bear and Bee combo, The Cub, so that you can have the ultimate cheers at your Christmas party.
You'll be able to snag a bottle of The Cub from places including Amber Taverns, Studio.co.uk and Hogarths Gin Palaces, as well as on the Zymurgorium and Beartown website for £25.00. However, with the code "LADBEAR10", you can get 10% off your purchase!
This drink has delectable Citra and Mosaic hops gently distilled and paired with delectable juniper, lemon, lime and vanilla flavours to create a taste sensation.
The Cub is modelled from an Old Tom Gin, a sweeter and lighter take on the liquor that was popular back in the late 1800s and was a notorious concoction in London's gin scene that was driven underground. It's said that those who couldn't help but crave a swig of this would look for cat-shaped plaques on the walls that they could drop a coin into via the cat’s mouth and have a shot of gin poured from a tube.
While you may not have a cat-shaped wall plaque as part of your Christmas trimmings to hang on the wall, this new Tom style gin is the perfect choice either as part of a classy G&T as you and your guests gather round for your annual catch-up or a more cheeky cocktail with the girls to Christmas tunes before heading out.
Plus, it's a gorgeous bottle design that you'll want to show off to anyone coming into your home from the cold this year.
