Never Never gin & tonic

The gin & tonic has been quenching thirsts for hundreds of years and we of the Never Never Distilling Co. love its versatility and simplicity. The juniper profile of the Triple Juniper Gin really lends itself to be mixed with the classic flavours of quinine found in good quality tonic water. We also have lots of lemon in our botanical profile which is obvious on the nose, so we compliment this by adding a lemon wedge garnish to our gin and tonic. For something extra special we recommend you serve it in a wine glass and add a sprig of lemon thyme and a twist of lemon peel. Because you’re fancy.
30ml Never Never Triple Juniper Gin

120ml quality tonic water

Lemon Wedge garnish
Build all ingredients into a highball glass, add quality ice and top with tonic. Garnish with a fresh wedge of lemon.



Never Never Negroni

The Negroni is one our favourite cocktails. Of course, you can make it slightly more traditional by using equal parts and garnishing with an orange twist, however we like ours a little more gin heavy. Because we love gin. The toasted cinnamon adds a smoky spiciness to the drink and enhances the wood spice used in the gin’s profile.
30ml Never Never Triple Juniper Gin

25ml Campari

25ml Italian sweet vermouth

Garnish: toasted cinnamon quill
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass, add ice and stir until the glass becomes frosted. Pour over a large chunk of ice in a fancy rocks glass. Toast cinnamon in glass with a lighter or blow torch. Drink immediately.

Never Never Gibson Martini

Without a doubt the best thing to come out of America. The Gibson martini embraces a slightly more savoury twist, using pickled cocktail onions as a garnish. The Gibson is not a martini for everyone, but then again, not everyone’s for martinis so why not do something we like to drink.
60ml Never Never Triple Juniper Gin

10ml quality dry vermouth

2 dashes of orange bitters

Garnish with two cocktail onions on a skewer
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir the drink until a frost develops on the outside of the mixing glass. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with cocktail onions (I know right, wierd, but try it, it’s really delicious).

Never Never Red Snapper

Put simply, a Red Snapper is a Bloody Mary made with gin instead of vodka, so effectively made with something with far more flavoursome. Everybody likes it differently, we prefer ours short and spicy with Sriracha instead of Tabasco sauce.
30ml Never Never Triple Juniper Gin

90ml quality tomato juice

10ml lemon juice

5ml Sriracha sauce

5ml Worcester sauce

pinch of salt & pepper

Garnish with a celery spear
Add all ingredients into a cocktail tin, add ice and pass this between another tin flamboyantly like a boss. Alternatively, you just stir it gently and not make any mess. Pour into a short glass and garnish with celery spear.

Southern Strength Southside

The Southside cocktail is a touch more sophisticated then it’s rum drenched cousin, the Mojito. The basics are the same, with gin, lime juice, mint and sugar combining to create a truly delicious libation. Serve it up for the classic or build it in a highball and top with soda water to create a fizz.
60ml Never Never Southern Strength Gin

30ml fresh lime juice

15ml sugar syrup

8 mint leaves

Garnish with a mint sprig
Add all ingredients into a cocktail tin, add ice and shake furiously. Fine strain into a chilled cocktail glass. For a fizz variation, add the mint to the bottom of a highball, gently press with a barspoon and build the drink using crushed ice. Top with soda water.

Southern Strength Collins

The Tom Collins is one of the best representations of a classic gin cocktail. Strong, tart and sparkling, this cocktail is great for people who don’t enjoy the bitter dryness associated with quality tonic water. It’s almost turning into a forgotten classic, such is it’s rarity on cocktail lists. We love it, simplicity is often the best.
