Red Cap Pigtail 50ml
This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home, this little piggy had cocktails…
What do you get when you fill a pig with cocktail? A pigtail of course. Angels’ Share have given this cute little glass porker a summer makeover, filled it with a raspberry gin liqueur that’s perfect for cocktails, and added a pair of cool shades. In those sunglasses, it looks holiday-ready and we think this pig might fly.
Although the Victorian Era was filled with gin palaces, it wasn’t just out-on-the-town that our ancestors enjoyed their gin. At home, wealthy households liked to showcase their collection in decanters called gin pigs. The National Trust Scotland property Brodie Castle in Moray has a pair, which inspired this creation from Angels’ Share Glass.
This porcine fellow is carefully filled with 50ml of Red Cap, a raspberry gin liqueur made by Stirling Distillery. Crafted by macerating locally sourced raspberries for up to ten day in their classic gin; they’ve captured the essence of summer. It can be sipped neat or served over ice, but we much prefer to add it to sparkling wine to create a refreshing cocktail. You can even garnish with fresh mint leaves or a couple of fresh or frozen raspberries if you’re feeling fancy.
So, break open the piggy bank and go the whole hog this summer. And remember, once you’ve finished the spirit within, this Pigtail can be refilled as many times as you desire with whatever spirit you like.
Named after the whisky that evaporates during maturation in oak casks, Angels’ Share creates some of the spirits world’s most beautiful bespoke glassware. From their glass blowing studio in Bridge of Allan, Tom Young MBE and his daughter Karen create vessels befitting the most revered distilleries.
