As part of their ongoing commitment to engage with the best local Irish producers, Ballymaloe Foods are proud to announce details of their latest partnership, a vodka cranberry sauce made with i-Stil 38 Premium Irish Vodka.
Since the brand was established in 1990, Ballymaloe Foods have always prioritized working with the best producers and suppliers to ensure their products are of the highest quality and always taste great. Their collaboration with i-Stil 38 Premium Irish Vodka is a prime example.
One of the three vodkas in the i-Stil 38 portfolio, is a pink berry made naturally with distilled Irish grains and Irish berries. It is rich with a fresh, fruity flavour and was chosen by the Ballymaloe team to infuse with their cranberry sauce. The end result is a grown up twist on a delicious cranberry sauce that works wonderfully with roast turkey, nut loaf, brie cheese or even mixed into a festive cocktail.
General Manager of Ballymaloe Foods and daughter of the company’s founder, Maxine Hyde adds,
“With the holiday season nearly upon us, no dinner table is complete without a jar of cranberry sauce – whether it’s destined for the plate or lovingly dressed onto a sandwich, it is the perfect accompaniment to so many Christmas meals. I have also taken great pleasure in mixing our Ballymaloe & i-Stil 38 Vodka cranberry sauce into some very tasty cocktails, an ideal way to celebrate some Christmas cheer!”
Oisin Davis of Great Irish Beverages consulted on a cocktail creation for the cranberry sauce, a simple drink to mix up either at home or in a bar.
