No. 1: Ginger in the spotlight

11 May 2021

Our workshops are designed to introduce unique, original flavours and create an authentic journey of the senses. We look at how Signature Mixer No. 1 puts ginger in the spotlight.

A chef’s take on the Moscow Mule

This famous cocktail was first invented in 1941 by a vodka seller (John Martin) and a ginger beer producer (Jack Morgan). With the aim of attracting attention to their products, the two decided to combine the ingredients in a cocktail served in a copper mug complete with handle.

It was an instant success and today the Moscow Mule remains a fashionable classic enjoyed all over the world.

The cocktail’s leading ingredient? Ginger! Kuantom’s mixologist collective used the same ingredient to create this signature mixer, designed to not only pair perfectly with Glenmorangie Whisky, Belvedere Vodka and Hennessy Cognac but also to create delicious mocktails*.

The perfect balance of spicy energy and softness

The secret to this extraordinary cocktail lies in ginger’s alliance with two other incredible ingredients, creating an explosion of flavours that propels us into another world, under a starry sky, contemplating the universe...

The perfectly balanced note of spicy ginger interweaves harmoniously with the sweetness of lightly honeyed orange blossom.

At first, the cocktail is soft on the lips, with the spice awakening the taste buds and remaining on the palate for an unforgettable moment.

“A superb design combining ginger, honey and orange blossom guaranteed to please many palates.” Matthias Giroud
