Nothing Fawlty about it

Square one basil

They recently launched a cracking 'botanical vodka', and now American organic vodka company Square One has unveiled a basil variety too.

Made like all their vodkas from 100% organic rye, Square One Basil is flavoured with four types of basil: Genovese, Thai, Lemon and Sweet, plus touches of coriander, honeysuckle and lemongrass – flavours that also work in savoury cocktails like the Bloody Mary, as well as sweet recipes.

'The sweet and savoury magic that fresh basil brings to cuisine applies equally well to cocktails. Our master distiller and I found that by layering select basil varieties we got the best expression of it,' explains Square One founder Allison Evanow.
