Thunderflower is delighted to announce that their Negroni 58 has been crowned as WINNER of its category at the Great British Food Awards on 28 October.
The Great British Food Awards were launched in 2014 to celebrate the country’s finest artisanal produce, as well as the hard-working people behind the scenes. This year, the awards are bigger and better than ever. Judged by David Moore, Chef and restaurant owner, his comments were:
“Excellent ingredients and blending giving a top version of a classic and totally recommend it and would buy it myself.”
Traditionally equal parts gin, vermouth and Campari, the Negroni is said to have been invented in 1919 in Florence when Count Negroni insisted on a stronger Americano cocktail with gin to replace the normal soda water.
Negroni 58 is Thunderflower’s contemporary take on this classic recipe, blending award-winning navy strength dry gin, FireShip 58, with one of the world’s finest sweet vermouths in Cocchi Storico Vermouth di Torino, and the iconic Italian liqueur, Amaro Montenegro, made in Bologna following an unchanged secret recipe since 1885.
The result is a perfectly balanced, bitter-sweet apéritif cocktail, made for the adventurous.
