When BBC Radio Sheffield call to ask if True North are up for making a Bovril based cocktail for Toby Foster's breakfast show, the answer is always YES!
They set us with a challenge of recreating London Cocktail Club's recipe for 'Rock My Manchester Gravy Boat' and we just had to put in a Sheffield twist too.
Our Duty Manager at The Devonshire, Leigh whipped up the delicious, beefy cocktail on air with Kat Harbourne and swapped Worcester Sauce for Henderson's Relish and Distil No 9 Ukrainian Vodka for Sheffield Vodka. True North's Vodka and Gin Ambassador, Chris Allan also talked to Kat about the science of stout and when this cocktail would be best enjoyed.
You can listen to the masterclass on Toby Fosters Breakfast Show from 7am on Friday 26th October here.
