Highgate’s Sacred Spirits distillery launches new Rosehip Cup liqueur
A Highgate couple who make gin in their own home have launched a new liqueur to rival Campari.
Rosehip Cup is an organic, deep red fruity drink which is best used to make Negronis, a cocktail of gin, vermouth and Campari.
It took creator Ian Hart of Talbot Road a year to come up with the liqueur which uses 27 botanicals, orange zest and rhubarb juice.
Mr Hart and his partner Hilary Whitney set up the Sacred Spirits microdistillery in their house in 2008 to make gin which is now exported across the world.
He said: “We’ve had such success with our gin and vermouth and Negroni is such an iconic cocktail – we thought, why not make all three ingredients?”
