Cripps 40 by Tenmile’s Tim Guy

Our first #TenmileintheWild cocktail for 2023 is an original concoction from Tenmile’s own Tim Guy (@therealtimguy). The Cripps 40 has been one of our favorite cocktails this winter, with its delicious blend of textures and flavors. Stop by the distillery to try one for yourself!

The drink takes its inspiration from the classic Pink Lady cocktail. Cripps is the cultivar name for Pink Lady Apples, and so a new classic was born.

Tim says “The whisky and gin complement each other thanks to the malted barley presence in both mash bills. The spiced notes in the grenadine bolster the citrus aromatics in the gin. The round character of single malt whisky tempers the flavor, while the egg gives texture and rounds out the edges of this pretty perfect cocktail.”
