We at Sandinista group have recently begun working with Double Dutch.
They are an award-winning independent company that specialises in adult soft drinks that are low in calories, sugars and organic.
Double Dutch is Joice and Raissa de Haas, twin sisters, who grew up in the Netherlands, a country rich in history for its spirits and flavours but less so for its mixers and sodas. This was a gap for innovation that Joice and Raiss wished to explore.
Their research for flavour began by speaking with bartenders to uncover what types of mixers would be desirable to them for mixing. This led to the invention of their first two expressions, Cucumber & Watermelon and Pomegranate & Basil.
Focussing on sodas that were free from additives, preservatives or colouring, it was important to the sisters that the mixers complemented perfectly when paired with spirits or drinks.
The subtle flavours in their tonics perfectly enhance the complex botanicals in gin, but their inspirational “molecular gastronomy” can also make you forget the gin in your drink.
If you’d like to drink them for yourselves feel free to pop down to Smokestack and sample them with your favourite spirits or try this cocktail featuring the Double Dutch Pomegranate & Basil.
