Simple, tasty dishes made extraordinary with the addition of quality spirits & liqueurs.
Our Master Distiller, Dr John, founded English Spirit as a means to find new expression for brilliant natural flavours by distilling them in alcohol. A quality spirit showcases the flavours of its ingredients, without fire or harshness. We’re all used to drinking good spirits, but we want to go one step further and show that it’s possible to eat them too. That’s why we’ve decided to film some of Dr John’s recipes as live cooking demonstrations hosted on Facebook Live.
All of the recipes shown are simple to make and quick to prepare with ordinary ingredients. No special kitchen equipment or skills are needed: anyone can have a go at this in their kitchen. You can follow along with the demonstration videos, or use them as inspiration for your own dishes. Each video is packed with everyday cooking tips as well as generous measures of English Spirit. John cooks, eats and drinks by the motto: it’s up to you and however you want to enjoy it best.
