The saltiness, the sweet peat, the seaweed. Smokehead’s bold flavours are full-on and full of surprises. The perfect pairing for a refreshing beer to sooth the fiery Smokehead.
The rush of maritime air, the shock of oily smoke and the confusing nutty, creamy notes. Something that powerful needs a strong-tasting beer that can hold it’s own. A tart, sharp sour beer with just as big and bold flavours is the perfect match.
Yes that’s custard and vanilla you can detect under that oily black smoke, authentic spanish Sherry oakiness means spices, sweetness and fruits, with that inescapable smokehead peatiness. Best paired with rich and flavoursome stouts and porter to compliment this dram.
Smokeheads don’t do basic. We do bold. Try a Smoking Cola to get away from the same old whisky and coke. With the undertones of the bitters and freshness of the orange, you’ll never go back once you experience the wild side.
Slice orange peel and place it into your glass. Add the drops of bitter and pound the peel to release the flavours. Pour in the Smokehead and Cola reduction and top with ice. To add the finishing touches, light some woodchips and smoke a jug. Pour the smoke over the cocktail and enjoy.
Awaken your senses and fire up your cocktails with this Lemon and Ginger Smoker. This electric mix will be sure to take your breath away but leave you wanting more.
Chop the root ginger into small chunks and combine with the sugar syrup in a jug. Pound the ginger and drop in some ice. Pour in the lemon juice and the Smokehead. Give this a good stir to combine the flavours. Strain the liquid into a serving jug. Add the ginger beer and if you are a cocktail connoisseur, light some woodchips and smoke the jug. Pour all this over ice and serve.
Less Old Fashioned, more Bold Fashioned, this bitter and twisted citrus-y classic is reborn and rebooted with the addition of peppery, peaty, potent Smokehead.
Put the sugar in your glass and wet it down with bitters. Crush all that together with whatever blunt instrument is handy, then rotate your glass so the sugar and bitters give it a lining. Add in some hefty ice cubes then pour over your whisky. Top if all off with the dark chocolate.
Like setting sail knowing there’s a typhoon on your tail. The intensely rich peatiness of Smokehead meets a salty seabed undertow, swirling together in your glass like a deep-sea whirlpool.
This requires a little more craft. But it’s worth it, trust us.
Take 200ml of water, 200gm of sugar, a sprinkle of rehydrated seaweed and simmer until the sugar is dissolved (a minute or so). Add a sprig of rosemary, a hefty pinch of salt and simmer for another 20 seconds. Pour Smokehead into a glass, strain in about 20ml of the syrup, add the ice and stir. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary freshly scorched and still smoking rosemary.
A little something that’ll warm the soles of your feet and your very soul. The fiery kick of Smokehead High Voltage combines with the zesty kick of ginger to create an effervescent zinger that spices things up nicely.
Chop about 2-3cm off your ginger root and peel it. Slice it finely, grate it roughly, or mash the living daylights out if out. Your call. Pour the ginger in the bottom of the glass, add a generous measure of High Voltage and chiselled chunks of ice. Then pour over some decent ginger beer. Add a slice of lemon and garnish with a sliver of ginger.
Don’t let The Man tell you this is sacrilege. Just give in to the thick smokiness, as it gives way to indulgent caramel. As sweet as honey, with a powerful, peaty punch.
Let’s face it, if we need to spell this one out, you probably shouldn’t be drinking Smokehead. But here goes. Put a measure of bold smoky whisky in your favourite glass. Smash up some ice. Feels good, doesn’t it? Pour over some quality cola. Add a wedge of lime to garnish.
