As the shadows lengthen in the garden you'll find yourself wanting to move from spicy hot bedtime beverages to a cool refreshing sundowner. Ice tea has always been THE summer cooler Stateside, but now with the launch of new Harry Brompton’s London Ice Tea, this craze is about to hit the UK. But Harry Brompton's is actually not just any ice tea. It is in fact, the world’s first premium alcoholic ice tea (not to be confused with Long Island Iced Tea which is a cocktail and contains no actual tea).
Handmade in London in limited batches it is made with ethically sourced Kenyan black teas and crisp craft-distilled grain spirit, and to finish it off it is infused with yummy citrus. You can find the first bottles at selected Waitrose stores now.
