Aloha 65 - a cocktail in a bottle
Aloha 65 defies easy description; it is probably best described as something between a flavoured spirit and an infused cocktail-in-a-bottle. You could also call it alcoholic ginger beer - in a good way.
Designed as a summer après surf, it now comes in a winter look as an après ski
This is from their website and tells the story much better than I can:
First crafted on the beaches of Florida at a popular beach-bar for surfers and sun-seekers, Aloha 65 is made up of an all natural infusion of fresh pineapple, ginger, Scotch-bonnet chillies and a selection of herbs in neutral grain spirit. Serve straight from the fridge or over ice, but it also does very well added add to ginger ale or aromatic tonic for a longer tipple.
Aloha 65 is like nothing else. It doesn’t fit neatly into boxes marked “gin” or “vodka”. It’s a spirit drink infused with fresh pineapple, lemon, ginger, scotch-bonnet chillies and carefully selected herbs and spices.
A delicious shot, a refreshing long-drink, or a unique heart of a great cocktail, Aloha 65 is all-natural, vegan, and lower in alcohol than many of the usual suspects. Original and mould-breaking, it’s an invitation to live life to the full.
