In the third of our blog focuses on producer partners with the same artisanal eye for excellence and innovation that we have, it gives us great pleasure to introduce Rubis.
The moment we tried their incredible, velvety blend of fortified Tempranillo wine and premium chocolate, we knew there had to be a place for it in our new Mixology Confection. No wonder they keep their cards close their chests …
“We keep our exact production methods very secret,’ says Simon Davies, Head of Rubis Sales, “but essentially, we take a high quality tempranillo wine from the La Mancha region of Spain, infuse it with Ghanaian cacao & fortify it with a neutral grain spirit.”
It has been described as “Christmas in a glass”, and certainly creates a celebration, but Rubis is equally fabulous chilled as a digestif, poured over vanilla ice cream or swirled through Eton Mess for a magical chocolate & cherry twist.
And now infusing handmade cherry fudge with chocolate wine …
’Tis the season for cocktails in the garden, however (or is that just us?) And Rubis’ most compelling claim (or is that just us too?) is as a base for some cracking cocktails. We’ve plundered the Rubis mixology files for some of the most delicious.
So, get crushing, grinding, muddling, stirring and garnishing; rattle that shaker like a Salsa maraca and .. Bottom’s Up!
