This week UK retailer Waitrose will begin selling a new innovative private brand spirit. Shaking up the dated perception of cream liqueurs, Wild-Arbor is a modern take on a classic drink which can be served straight over ice or used in a variety of cocktails, from an Espresso Martini to a White Russian.
Free from gluten, GMOs, and lactose, Wild-Arbor is a clear spirit sweetened with honey, and has the same velvety texture, silky mouthfeel, and indulgent flavor as a cream liqueur, without the use of dairy. Ideal for those with lactose intolerance, or vegans who eat honey, it’s a revolutionary step in the world of cocktail-making.
John Vine, Waitrose spirits buyer says, ‘We\’ve been seeing the trend for retro drinks making a comeback for a while now and Wild-Arbor is proof that even the most traditional spirit can be modernized.’
Wild-Arbor is delicious served neat in a chilled rocks glass with ice and a slice of orange or a sprig of mint, or in a variety of cocktails.
