The Ivy on the Square launches Six Nations cocktails in collaboration with the Garden Shed Drinks Company
Edinburgh’s The Ivy on the Square celebrated the start of Six Nations season in style last night (Wednesday, January 30), and Hood was lucky enough to bag an invite to the exclusive launch party.
Guests enjoyed cocktails inspired by each nation taking part in the rugby tournament, available at the restaurant between 1 February and 16 March.
The limited-edition cocktails have been specially created in collaboration with the Garden Shed Drinks Company, an environmentally-friendly Scottish gin distillery co-founded by Scottish Rugby professional Ruaridh Jackson and former Scottish international player Ryan Grant.
We might be biased, but the Scottish Thistle, a zingy mix of Côte-Rôtie Aged Gin and Naked Grouse whisky with ginger, lemon and honey, was definitely our favourite of the night. Ivy on the Square customers can also enjoy an English Rose, French Iris, Welsh Daffodil, Irish Clover or Italian Lily cocktail, available exclusively at the St Andrew Square restaurant throughout the Six Nations tournament.
