This Gibson Martini limited edition bottle is the ultimate lockdown treat
Get the ultimate Gibson Martini at home - complete with posh pickled onions.
The Gibson Martini is the ultimate twist to the classic cocktail. For those with a savoury tooth, the drink is garnished with a pickled onion instead of an olive. It may only be the garnish that has changed but it significantly shifts the drink to another level.
It's a classic and was the thing that inspired the name of the The Gibson Bar in Old Street London. The bar opened five years ago and is celebrating its 5th birthday in a rather unique way.
Given that none of us can visit a cocktail bar right now, due to Covid-19 scuppering any social plans we may have had, the bar is bringing the iconic drink to the home for the first time.
"To celebrate our 5th birthday on the 20th of November we’re making something very special for you: The Gibson’s 5th Anniversary Limited Edition bundle," says Gibson Bar about its latest martini venture.
Given that means you will be able to make the cocktail at home for around £10 a pop, this is a fantastic deal.
The bottles are amazing, old-school in looks and sealed with beeswax. Each one is hand-labelled, signed and numbered from 1-50.
We should know as we are the proud owner of bottle number 16. We were allowed to sample the drink before its launch and it's fantastic. The accompanying pickles elevates the sharp smokiness of the cocktail, turning the whole thing into a decadent delight.
- These are the best gin brands we've taste tested.
