Rugby fever is set to hit Edinburgh as the city gears up for the return of the Six Nations tournament. The Ivy on the Square will be celebrating in style with a special limited-edition cocktail menu in collaboration with The Garden Shed Drinks Company, an environmentally-friendly business co-founded by Scottish Rugby professional Ruaridh Jackson and former Scottish international player Ryan Grant.
The six cocktails – one representing each participating country – will use their signature Garden Shed Gin and their newly released limited edition Côte-Rôtie Aged Gin, which is the first of its kind, and each cocktail has a distinctly national flavour.
The Scottish Thistle is a warming blend of Côte-Rôtie Aged Gin and Naked Grouse whisky with ginger, lemon and honey, and the refreshing English Rose uses quintessentially English ingredients including Pimms, cucumber and elderflower cordial.
The cocktails are running from Saturday, 2 February to Sunday, 16 March as well as our rugby ball dessert which will be available exclusively on match days.
