An Aperol Spritz has become something of a summer staple, but oh, so orange! For a cleaner, clearer taste, try the new Wingfield Spritz, created from a new gin aperitif, The Wingfield

The Wingfield is named after the pioneer of British Lawn Tennis, Major Walter Clopton Wingfield, so it’s perfect for Wimbledon finals weekend. A contemporary aperitif, it is blended to a secret recipe from a small batch London Dry Gin, cucumber, pink grapefruit, elderflower and other fruits and spices.

A clean, clear, sophisticated alternative to Pimm’s and Aperol, The Wingfield is fresh and perfectly balanced with a dry finish. An aperitif for alfresco summer drinking, serve it chilled over the rocks or with soda water or sparkling wine. You’ll find it being served up at all Harvey Nichols bars around the UK, as well as The OXO Tower, Trinity & Bistro Union in Clapham, Dirty Bones in Kensington & Soho and Heddon Street Kitchen in Soho. Also try the Wimbledon Cocktail – The Wingfield Daisy – at all Hix bars.

You can also pick up a bottle of your own at Harvey Nichols, Master of Malt, Hedonism Wines or The Oxford Wine Company, priced from £30, and whip up the cocktails yourself using these simple recipes:

  • 100ml The Wingfield gin aperitif
