As Peaky Blinders continues its stellar fourth season, and we all try to get over the shocking death of John Shelby (RIP), fans of the gritty BBC drama can now enjoy a taste of the show, with a new range of spirits as uncompromising as Tommy Shelby himself.
Yep, by order of the Peaky Blinders, there's a a new range of gin, rum and whiskey, which promises to "give a a true taste of the 1920s".
The craft spirits are produced by Black Country-based family business Sadler's, who own some of the pubs that the real-life Peaky Blinders gang used to actually go to.
The spirits are inspired by flavours from the gang's era of the 1920s when an exciting array of new flavours emerged as new ethnicities settled in the area, bringing with them new ingredients, aromas and distilling methods.
The range includes Tommy Shelby's drink of choice, whisky, which is said to be "a nod to the Irish community prevalent in the Peaky Blinders period".
The Peaky Blinder Irish Whiskey is blended from grain and single malt Irish whiskey, and finished in a sherry cask.
With an aroma of malts and cracked nuts, the whiskey has a sweet taste and according to Sadler's, has an "exceptionally smooth", intense flavour.
Recognising the 1920's gin cocktail culture, the Peaky Blinders spirit range also includes a Spiced Dry Gin. Described as a "small batch, handcrafted spiced dry gin", it's made from a carefully-selected collection of nine exotic botanicals.
Including peppery notes of ginger and grains of paradise, this gin is not for the faint-hearted...
There's also a Peaky Blinder Black Spiced Rum to finish off the range, which is another tip of the hat to the rum the Sadler's family would have offered to customers in the 1920s. It's brought up to date with "notes of orange, nutmeg, vanilla and raisin".
Sadler's small batch is described as a "bold" and warming Caribbean rum, blended with spices and aged in ex-Pedro Ximenez casks.
