Copenhagen based Empirical Spirits’s canned cocktail offering showcases the company’s flavour first ethos. The two different expressions, CAN 01 and CAN 02 use uniquely selected ingredients for refreshing and delicious cocktails that you can imbibe anywhere
Delicately fizzy, CAN 01 leads with an acidic gooseberry flavour balanced by a flowery oolong tea, and rounded out by freshly cut toasted birch and an undercurrent of pomelo zest.
Can 02 is effervescent, enlivening, fruity. The walnut wood gives a sturdy depth to the notes of zesty sour cherry, aromatic black currant buds, and lemony maqaw pepper.

Founders Will Best and Harry Farnham made it their mission to find the perfect Bloody Mary – they started making their own for friends and family and Bloody Drinks was born from there.
The Bloody Classic is created using high-quality ingredients including premium vodka and Amontillado sherry for the body, the finest tomatoes from Italy and Spain for natural sweetness, fresh lemons for acidity, Worcestershire and soy sauce for a rich, umami-packed base, and the legendary TABASCO® Sauce for that much-needed kick.
The Bloody Classic is free from additives, flavour enhancers and other nasties, and is only 130kcal. Most importantly though, it’s a well perfected, ready-to-go recipe, ideal for those who didn’t spend lockdown becoming an amateur mixologist. Perfect for picnics and al fresco socialising.
