THE PERFECT COMBINATION
While watermelon and cucumber are both part of the Cucurbitaceae plant family, watermelon’s natural sugars bring warmth and shine to the traditionally fresh savour of cucumber. When you taste this mixer you will feel how the additional depth offered by watermelon allows the Cucumber & Watermelon mixer to stand alone or support light rums, vodkas and other base spirits that require a little warmth to come to life. While cucumber has a traditional affinity for gin, the watermelon adds something extra to this mixer and to your drink.
If you read the story about Double Dutch, it is quite outstanding. It is the story about two Dutch twin sisters who were frustrated about the missing development within mixers. They explain how the worlds choice of spirits has continued to grow and mixers and sodas have remained bland – less of a twin, more of a shadow. As a result of their frustration the Dutch twin sisters have introduced “Double Dutch” which is a range of four tonics: “Double Dutch is the result of our love affair to unite great spirits with complementary mixers that enliven and enhance.” According to themselves, this is “a whole new world of soft drinks” and we may agree with them. Double Dutch is extremely tasty mixers which renews you gin and tonic as the perfect twin for your spirit.
The philosophy behind Double Dutch is to draw on scientific research, sourcing the finest ingredients and combining art with craft to create soft drinks that intensify the flavour of spirits and delight the taste when drunk alone. Great cooks and food creators have long had an intuitive sense of which flavours work together and now their art is underpinned by data. Double Dutch is based on the idea that a mixer should elevate the spirit, spurring the taste to experience new and richer, deeper and more exciting flavours. It should reward the drinker with sensations that improve rather than diluting their chosen drink.
