The Weekly Cocktail Recipe – R&B Distillers ‘Borders Sour’

Tying in with National Whisky Sours Day having taken place in America this week, as well as record breaking temperatures here in the UK – this week’s featured cocktail recipe is most fitting.

New Scottish brand R&B Distillers’ take on the class Whisky Sour is the perfect antidote to the blistering heat. An incredibly simple concoction, the ‘Borders Sour’ showcases R&B’s Borders highland single grain Scotch whisky, combined with fresh lemon, pineapple, Gomme syrup and grapefruit bitters.
