Bramble Sting by Black Castle is a refreshing mix of juicy blackberries and stinging nettle (don’t worry, it won’t hurt!), brewed using Demerara sugar to create an alcohol-free drink, perfect for a dry night out.
Black Castle set out to create something different: a range of craft sodas marketed towards adults as an alternative to alcohol. Made in Wicklow, their sodas use all natural ingredients and incorporate interesting and creative flavour blends. Black Castle sodas are perfect for an alcohol free night out, but for you budding mixologists out there, these craft sodas work brilliantly as an up-market mixer that will bring your cocktails to the next level.
For a delightful summer cocktail add a squeeze of lemon juice to a cocktail glass, add a small handful of ice-cubes, 25ml of high quality gin (why not try something local such as Shortcross?) and top off the glass with Bramble sting.
