Blood and Sandstone

A Welsh twist on the classic ‘Blood & Sand’ cocktail, inspired by the sandstone mountains of Brecon Beacons National Park. A mix of Penderyn Whiskey (distilled in Brecon Beacons National Park), Welsh Cherry Liqueur, sweet vermouth and fresh squeezed orange juice - served in a chilled coupette and garnished with an orange twist.

This cocktail was created by Tipplesworth as part of its route-inspired cocktail menu with First Great Western, representing 'Brecon Beacons'.
