World’s First Alcoholic Pastille Unveiled

World’s First Alcoholic Pastille Unveiled

For the first time ever a food product is being sold on the alcohol shelf as Smith & Sinclair blurs the lines between food and drink with its edible alcoholic confection. Launched in Harvey Nichols’ stores nationwide on 3rd October, the eclectic selection offers cocktail flavours in a range of naturally coloured pastilles. Using high quality spirits, fresh fruit and real spices, each pastille is made by hand for a luxury taste experience. Smith & Sinclair’s innovative alcoholic cocktail pastilles are available in rum, gin and whisky, RRP £8.95 for a box of six.

Smith & Sinclair’s melt-in-the-mouth alcoholic pastilles are gluten, dairy and preservative free and come in six cocktail flavours using three spirits – rum, gin and whisky. Each cocktail recipe has been deconstructed and reconfigured through a complex cooking process, which ensures minimal alcohol is burnt off, delivering layer upon layer of flavour with an alcoholic kick. Twists on classic cocktails include Gin & Tonic (violet infused gin and a lemon sherbet coating), Mixed Berry Daiquiri (with summer berries, dark rum and a pink peppercorn infused coating) and Whisky Sour (with a sour grapefruit coating).

Smith & Sinclair was founded by self-confessed sweet tooth Melanie Goldsmith and acclaimed chef Emile Bernard.
