Nelson's Coronation Cocktails!

Nelson's Coronation Cocktails! - Nelson's Distillery & School

In honour of the King's Coronation, Nelson's founder and Master Distiller, Neil Harrison has crafted two exceptional cocktails inspired by the event's culinary delights.

The Tarragon Martini, a nod to the Coronation Quiche, combines Nelson's London Dry Gin with fresh tarragon and lemon juice for a refreshing and sophisticated drink. Meanwhile, the Strawberry & Ginger Gin Cooler pays tribute to the Coronation Trifle with its delightful blend of strawberries, ginger, and Nelson's London Dry No.7.

These exquisite cocktails are the perfect way to toast the momentous occasion, and we invite you to share your celebratory photos with us. Cheers!
