With London’s tier two firmly in place, another looming lockdown hanging over us and no clue when our next holiday might be, we think it’s about time for a drink, don’t you? Inside this week’s drinks cabinet is OPIHR, a spiced little number that’s perfect for sinking into as the nights draw darker and longer.

Plus, The Handbook readers can make the most of an exclusive 15% off deal – keep reading for more on how you can redeem. 

Unlike the usual citrusy, sweet or floral botanicals we’re used to in a gin, OPIHR’s notes are truly unique, taking those in the sipping seat on a journey along the ancient spice route from which it takes its inspiration – think juicy coriander seeds from Morocco and black lemons from Arabia that give a gloriously rich and smooth citrus flavour. This autumn, pouring your favourite tipple that tastes and looks as good as one you’d find after hours in a dark-cornered basement cocktail bar (remember the days?) has never been easier.

From heady black pepper from India to Persian black lemons from Arabia, OPIHR’s sipping notes are truly unique.

The brand has just launched its Regional Editions range – three unique spiced gins each inspired by the signature flavours of destinations far and wide, from Europe to the Far East to Arabia. And bringing the bar directly to you has never been easier as they are all available to shop on Amazon. Simply head to ‘OPIHR’s Cocktail Voyager’, select your ‘destination’, and all the ingredients you need to make the perfect cocktail inspired by that place can be added to your basket and delivered straight to your door.

In these strange times it’s about the closest thing to travelling the world you’re going to get, right from the comfort of your sofa or round the dining table. 

Here are three of OPIHR’S best to mix yourself at home…

OPIHR’s Winter Spiced Spritz

What we’d do to take to the waterways of Venice or be looking up at Florence’s Santa Maria del Fiore right now, but alas, we’ll settle for the next best thing. The next best thing being OPIHR’s Winter Spiced Spritz.

A spicy twist on the Italian favourite, it gives the popular summer drink a winter-appropriate feel thanks to OPIHR’s European Edition Gin that’s infused with  aromatic bitters and rounded orange notes. Bellísimo

OPIHR’s Spiced Red Snapper

A Bloody Mary by way of the markets of Asia should be on the menu for your next brunch at home.

Taking the warming flavours of Szechuan pepper and smoky ajwain commonly found in China, this twist on an old favourite will become your go-to weekend indulgence. 

Sure to usurp your go-to weekend Bloody Mary.

OPIHR’s Spiced Daiquiri

Finally, we’re headed to Persia and it’s cornucopia of bold flavours and rich colours, with OPIHR’s Spiced Daiquiri that proves the cocktail isn’t just destined for salty summer days.

Bringing together a match made in heaven of citrus and spice thanks to black lemons and timut peppers, this is one welcomed addition to your cocktail making skill set.
