Amico’s Bar in Ingatestone High Street is partnering with Ketel One Vodka to launch The Ketel One Edible Garden pop-up, with cocktails featuring garnishes to enhance their flavour.

The bespoke cocktail menu will include unusual plants and herbs grown via Evogro, an innovative plant growing system, allowing seasonal ingredients to grow all year round. Amico’s Bar will be the UK’s first bar to use this groundbreaking horticultural technology.

Created by Amico’s Bar owner and award-winning bartender Dan Dove, the menu will be presented in the style of a gardener’s notebook and feature a monthly changing, array of cocktails. Diverse species of herbs and plants will be used, including red komatsuna, curled chervil, lemon gem tagetes, bulls blood beet and red garnet amaranth to perfectly compliment the Ketel One Vodka botanicals.

Drinks will include Red Rubin Basil, a timeless classic featuring Ketel One Vodka which is based on the traditional flavours of rich zesty homemade pesto; and Red Komatsuna, a sophisticated and delicate drink of sweet nutty combinations which highlights Ketel One’s notes of citrus and honey.

The Ketel One Edible Garden is a pop up bar takes inspiration from the craftsmanship of Ketel One Vodka, which is owned by the Nolet family who have been distilling spirits for over 300 years.

Situated in a Grade II listed building in the heart of Essex, Amicos is an innovative and unique cocktail bar, combining Italian heritage with the fresh, local produce from Essex to create a drinks menu inspired by the flavours and aromas of Italy’s iconic regions.
