Skellig Six18 Distillery have Collaborated with the Contemporary Italian Restaurant, Osteria Lucio, to Bring Dublin a Custom Curated Cocktail that captures the Taste of the Wild Atlantic Ocean.
We’ve all been patiently awaiting the announcement that allows us venture safely beyond restrictions to visit our favourite stretch of the incredibly beautiful Irish coastline. While we await that visit, Skellig Six18 Distillery (based on the Skellig Coastline in Cahersiveen, County Kerry) and the team at Osteria Lucio (Dublin Docklands) have teamed up to bring you the taste of the wild Atlantic Ocean, to savour at home.
Coastal Fizz is a delicious Skellig Six18 custom curated cocktail inspired by the Ocean. Skellig Six18 collaborated with the team at Chapter One, sister restaurant of Osteria Lucio, to create this unique and elegant cocktail with Skellig Six18 Gin as the base. It is a refreshing wave of Irish coastal flavour.
Skellig Six18 Gin launched in October 2019 and it has since gained national distribution. Inspired by the landscape rich with natural ingredients from the woodland to the Atlantic seashore, Skellig Six18 carefully choose botanicals that are local to the Skellig Coastline. The Irish artisan pot distilled gin is distilled in small batches, and slowly blended over six weeks to deliver an integrated herbaceous gin with citrus and pink grapefruit notes. Rich in flavour and depth, it pairs beautifully with food.
At Osteria Lucio, Ross Lewis and Lucio Tona unite their love of Irish and Italian food culture with the very best produce from both countries. With a shared passion for their craft and respect for local ingredients, Osterio Lucio and the Skellig Six18 Distillery have come together to celebrate the taste our wild Atlantic coastal flavours.
The Skellig Six18 Coastal Fizz Cocktail (2/3 servings) is exclusively available from the Osteria Lucio ‘Order & Collect’ menu. The Skellig Six18 Gin 100ml, the cocktail recipe mixture, and garnishes, will be hand packed by the team and wrapped carefully in a beautifully branded, 100% compostable cardboard box along with the recipe card. Just in time to savour in the summer sunshine, and long Bank Holiday weekends.
