HARVEYS APERITIVO // NEW PRODUCT

Thank you to The Great Endeavour for the following content.

New Harveys Aperitivo is a fresh take on summer sipping.

Let’s face it, summer 2020 will be like no other. With less international travel now a reality, we’re embracing the staycation – whether that’s jumping in your car with a tent and vital supplies in tow or hosting a party in your back garden or local park. New Harveys Aperitivo – a sherry-infused drink – has launched just in time to raise a glass to celebrate being back together… at a distance.

Forget everything you think you know about sherry, Harveys Aperitivo is a truly fresh take on summer’s runaway serve, the spritz.  Exclusive to the UK and developed by the renowned Harveys Bodega in the scorching heat of Jerez in southern Spain, Harveys Aperitivo comes in two flavours – Pink and Orange. Both flavours are best enjoyed poured over ice, topped up with soda water (or lemonade) and finished with a couple of red berries (Pink) or a slice of orange (Orange).

Harveys Orange is a delicious blend of two grape varieties – Palomino and Muscatel – with an aroma of bitter orange, tangerine and aromatic herbs. Harveys Pink is made of three grape varieties – Palomino, Tintilla de Rota (a local rare red wine) and Muscatel – and has a subtle aroma of red fruits and flowers. The delicious result is a low ABV (15%) and low calorie (62 kcal) light, zesty and refreshing serve, made with 100% natural flavours. 

And, as the name suggests, Harveys Aperitivo is the perfect drink to enjoy in the late afternoon and early evening.  Channel its rich Spanish heritage and serve it with a delicious array of tapas. Think Manchego cheese, slices of jamon and plump juicy olives, they’re perfect pairings to match the Aperitivo flavours and whisk you away (at least metaphorically) to the sundrenched shores of Andalusia. 

Harveys will be sending the usual spritz and sundowners suspects straight to a new supermarket aisle, with both variants of the Aperitivo available on shelves in the sherry aisle. Harveys Aperitivo Pink is available at Tesco stores nationwide, priced £11.50 for a 75cl bottle. Harveys Aperitivo Orange is available in Sainsburys (for a limited time), priced £11.50 for a 75cl bottle.

JAGERMEISTER // MULE COCKTAIL

Thank you to KINC for the following press release

‘Mix it Up for Summer’ with the Jägermeister Mule cocktail
A light and refreshing mix of Jägermeister with Ginger Beer

This summer Jägermeister is introducing the Jägermeister Mule, a refreshing mix of Jägermeister, ginger beer, cucumber and lime with slightly spicy after notes. The cocktail is the brand’s meisterful reinterpretation of the classic Moscow Mule, with a twist. 

Florian Beuren, UK Brand Ambassador at Mast-Jaegermeister UK explained. “The flavours in the Jägermeister Mule work together in harmony to create a really refreshing serve that lets the signature taste of Jägermeister come through. Ginger is one of the core five ingredients in Jägermeister so the ginger beer works well to amplify this. The addition of lime and cucumber balances the fiery tones of the ginger resulting in a simple yet complex serve.”

The cocktail is now available at some of the most exciting bars in the capital including Night Tales, Aqua Shard, Tramp, NT’s and Liquorette amongst others, plus you can find it at over 800 bars across the UK. 

Jägermeister Mule is also perfect for creating an exciting but simple serve at-home to enjoy during pre-drinks, with a special brunch, or at a summer BBQ. In supermarkets limited edition bottles will come with a free ginger beer voucher plus a guide to creating the perfect Jägermeister Mule at home.

About Jägermeister:
Jägermeister, the unique herbal spirit known for its iconic bottle was developed by Curt Mast from a secret recipe 80 years ago. A blend of 56 different herbs, blossoms, roots and fruits from all over the world, this undisclosed recipe has not changed since it was first made. The pure and natural botanical ingredients are extracted in their raw, unprocessed form through a gentle, weeks-long process of cold maceration to create Jägermeister’s base. The base, housed in more than 400 oak casks, then “breathes” for one full year to guarantee a high-quality finish, and authentic taste. Jägermeister contains 35% alcohol by volume. Made by Mast-Jägermeister SE and family owned to this day, the liquid launched in Wolfenbüttel Germany. 

Best served as an ice-cold shot at -18C, or as a long drink in the popular Jägermeister Mule – a concoction of the herbal liquid, ginger beer and lime. With irreverent perfectionism at its core, the brand has steeped its roots in the music industry through its festival activation, JägerHaus, and ongoing partnerships with Soho Radio and Reform Radio.
