  • WHO MADE IT?
  • WHO MADE IT?
  • "The motto is drink nice things, and the exciting first salvo from Sweetdram – a dynamic and innovative distiller based in east London – is one hell of a nice thing. First released in 2016, Escubac is a delicious, spicy and citrusy alternative to gin—see the ridiculously moreish Escubac and tonic (below), or E&T as it has become known.

    As the gin sector continues to saturate, Escubac offers the discerning drinker and bartender something genuinely original and genuinely delicious to use as an alternative. But Escubac is more than a gin replacement. In fact, it is such a multipurpose and unique product that we’re still working out how best to describe it —a botanical spirit? A French apéro? A gin ancillary?

    Innovation is Sweetdram’s stock in trade, so although Escubac was inspired by a recipe found in an old French distilling manual, this remarkable drink is no carbon copy of the defunct original. Rather, what Fisher and MacLeod Smith have done is to reimagine the Escubac spirit for today’s drinker. To start, Sweetdram macerate 14 botanicals, including caraway, cardamom, cubeb, lemon and bitter orange and citrus, for 72 hours, then slowly distill them using Combier’s antique stills. The long arching lyne arms and balloon-shaped, partial rectifiers create a refined aromatic spirit, which is then very lightly sweetened with golden raisins and a small amount of sugar, and then is tinted a light straw-yellow with strands of saffron."
