Is there a more famous gin aperitivo than the Negroni? Reputed to originate in 1919 in Florence and named after the Count Camillo Negroni this simple drink creates a powerfully bitter, richly flavoured and ultimately delicious combination. Garden Swift (formerly Garden Tiger) sings amongst sweet vermouth and Campari, adding huge layers of floral complexity.

Cocktails don't come simpler to make than this:

  • 25ml Garden Swift dry gin (or try one of our barrel aged versions)
  • 25ml Campari
  • 25ml rosso Vermouth (sweet Italian)
  • A strip of orange zest

Pour all three ingredients into an ice filled tumbler. Stir and enjoy this powerfully flavoured marvel. Garnish with a twist of orange zest.
