Limited edition Lockdown Series cocktails have been created by creative director Joe Schofield and 25% of all online sales will be donated to the drinks industry charity

The first two cocktails from Asterley Bros – which usually produces Schofield's Vermouth, Dispense Amaro, Estate Vermouth and Britannica Fernet in south London – are a Rhubarb Neroni and a Wet Martini and have been created by bartender Joe Schofield.

'My brother [Jim] and I... have been supplying bars and restaurants for a few years now. We decided, in the muddle of this mayhem, that we wanted to support The Drinks Trust and their amazing work for the employees of the drinks industry, and so decided back on 16 March that we would be donating 25% of all our online sales to the charity,' Rob Asterley told Imbibe.

The drinks come in 1l pouches which have been designed by Ryan Gajda, an illustrator who submitted this image to support the #GONNASTAYHOME challenge led on Instagram by a group of artists during the covid-19 crisis.

Customers can buy the cocktails, which cost £44.95/1l from the company's website.
