JITTERBUG NOW MULTI AWARD WINNING – 2019 Silver IWSC (International Wines & Spirits Competition) & 2019 Bronze LSC (London Spirits Competition)
Cab Calloway’s Call of the Jitterbug lyrics clearly demonstrate the association between the word Jitterbug and the consumption of alcohol:
If you’d like to be a Jitterbug,
First thing you must do is get a jug,
Put whiskey, wine and gin within,
And shake it all up and then begin.
Grab a cup and start to toss,
You are drinking jitter sauce!
Don’t you worry, you just mug,
And then you’ll be a Jitterbug!
Jitters is from a spoonerism [‘bin and jitters’ for ‘gin and bitters’]…and Jitterbug originally referred to one under the influence of gin and bitters
Jitterbug from Speakeasy Spirits is a juniper led, contemporary gin with layers of complex citrus flavour. Smooth enough to sip neat and sufficiently substantial to complement your favourite mixer. Our perfect serve is simply, over ice with a good quality neutral tonic. We garnish with merely a sliver of lime or lemon to preserve the taste integrity of this flavoursome gin. Let us know if you discover a combination that really works for you, we want to know!
Distilled with juniper, fresh citrus fruits, coriander and cardamom. Jitterbug creates a lively dancefloor on your tongue. At 44% ABV this truly is a premium artisan gin.
