No pubs open?  No problem – make this end of summer cocktail

The shadows of Autumn are slowly creeping in that little bit earlier each evening, but this week’s weather reports are defying the odds and promising one more week of summer sunshine – so why not enjoy with this refreshing tipple from The Sexton Irish Single Malt Whiskey?

The Sexton is rich in hue, bold in taste and memorable in character. Distilled entirely from Irish malted barley, and triple distilled in copper pot stills before maturing in Oloroso Sherry casks, it has a versatile flavour profile that makes it the perfect partner for a delicious summer cocktail.

So, what are you waiting for?
