TUACA – start chilled – finish responsibly.

Made from the same unique recipe since 1938, TUACA is made from oak aged Italian brandy and then infused with natural citrus fruit and sweet aromatics, including light vanilla tones. This mix gives TUACA an incredibly complex taste profile, making it an ideal base for cocktails and long drinks, as well as excellent as a chilled shot, to be sipped and savoured. TUACA is 70% proof (35% alcohol).

The nights are drawing in, the woolly gloves are on and we’ve finally got our missing hour back: Winter has returned and brings with it some deliciously different ideas for cocktail hour.

Now I don't know about where you live but most people I know round here have been suffering with the flu recently.  I have been a bit chesty so instead of adding brandy to my coffee I have added a capful of TUACA.  If you think of how brandy warms your body up TUACA does the same but has a hint of vanilla and orange as well .... really warm and festive at this time of year.  I felt that my 'hot toddy' wasn't medicinal but really special instead :)

TUACA has a range of mouth watering ideas to spice up the festive season this year. Whether it’s to heat up a cold crisp city night, to round off a day on the slopes or as a delightfully different signature serve for the party season, a warm TUACA cocktail is sure to thaw out your tastebuds.

TUACA has an incredibly complex taste profile, making it an ideal base for cocktails and long drinks, as well as excellent as a chilled shot, to be sipped and savoured. A must try is TUACA with hot cloudy apple juice and a small sprinkle of cinnamon, a perfect winter warmer!

Here are some ideas as to how to serve TUACA, please remember to drink responsibly.
