Asterley Bros Cocktail Club – July 2020: Pink Negroni

The Asterly Bros Cocktail Club is a brand new monthly cocktail club subscription box which specialises in delivering premium cocktail kits straight to your door, alongside a couple of awesome extras! There’s no contract involved so you can cancel at any time and each month’s box is worth over £60 so it’s a brilliant deal for anyone who enjoys trying out cocktails and sharing them with their friends.

Asterly Bros Cocktail Club also donates 10% of all profits to a number of charities supporting the Hospitality industry which is great to see during these difficult times.

Everything was wrapped up very professionally in a sleek black box and arrived in perfect condition. Curious to find out what’s inside? Keep on reading!

The cocktails are themed to take you on a journey throughout the seasons, so July’s is a delicious Pink Negroni – yum! This reusable pouch contains 1 litre of Pink Negroni which works out at around 10 servings. The cocktail is crafted from a blend of Schofield’s Dry Vermouth, Cabby’s Gin, Pink Grapefruit, Rose and Gentian Liqueur and comes in at 21% ABV.

Before serving, you place the pouch in your freezer for an hour and then pour 100ml over ice and serve with a slice of fresh Grapefruit.

I had a few problems opening the top of the pouch as the cap was incredibly stiff so I ended up cutting it open and pouring it into the glass a frozen cocktail instead. The drink was still delicious, perhaps more so during this recent heatwave! It definitely packs a punch and was stronger than I anticipated, but I loved the fruity notes which worked really well as a summery twist on the classic Negroni recipe.

The artwork on the cocktail pouch is really cool so I was pleased to find an art print of this which is numbered and limited edition, designed by Ryan Gajda.

Next up, I found a 100ml pouch of Cabby’s Gin (41.2% vol) who are the Independent Brand Partner of the month. This special spotlight lets subscribers try the product on its own and comes with serving suggestions and a short interview with the brand.

To complete the box, I found two premium appertivo nibbles from I Love Snacks (these Italian Olives are delicious!) and a Pomelo & Pink Pepper Tonic Water from The London Essence Co to enjoy with the Cabby’s Gin above.

Every month, you can also watch an exclusive ‘behind the scenes’ video with Joe Schofield, Creative Director, where he details the history and inspiration for each of his unique cocktails, and you’ll find an exclusive Discount Code for 15% off all purchases in the Asterley Bros online store, as well as a unique code to share with friends and family. Every time someone uses your code to join the Asterley Bros Cocktail Club, you will both receive a double cocktail pack containing 100ml of Rhubarb Negroni & Wet Martinis. How awesome is that?!

Our score: 9.6/ 10

Although I had a few problems opening the cocktail pouch, I'm absolutely thrilled with the contents of this first Asterley Bros Cocktail Club box! This would be a fantastic subscription to give as a gift or as a post-lockdown treat for yourself.
