We’re not going to lie, we’re definitely partial to a cocktail to two here at The Status Life and for those who love a G & T or rum punch as well, now is the time to add some delicious spirits to your home bar setup.

Luckily, there is certainly no shortage of options when it comes to mouth-watering spirits and if you’re in the mood for a cocktail as we head into spring and summer, you’ll want to check out our list of 8 spirits to add to your drinks cart in 2022 below:

Kraken ‘Unknown Deep’ Black Spice Rum

The ideal gift for both rum lovers and deep sea diving fans, the new ‘Unknown Deep‘ Black Spice Rum from Kraken is embossed with an ominous bioluminescence and contained within its own distressed diving cage. And what’s more, to help protect the oceans from pollution Kraken will once again join forces with marine conservation charity PADI AWARE and donate £1 from every sale of its new bottle to help fund its work.

Aviation Gin

Like the world’s finest gins, Aviation is distilled using a proprietary maceration recipe that produces a pure medley of botanical flavour and it’s definitely a real favourite around The Status Life.

Cotswolds Signature Single Malt Whisky

Cotswolds Signature Single Malt Whisky is award winning and the first whisky ever made in the Cotswolds. It is crafted using the finest locally grown, traditionally floor-malted Cotswold barley. Matured in highly active STR (Shaved, Toasted and Re-charred) ex-red wine casks and premium first-fill ex-Bourbon casks, this single malt whisky delivers an amazing depth of flavour with notes of honey, Seville orange marmalade and dark red fruits.

Suncamino Floral Rum

After working with a distiller in Barbados to develop their signature 8yo blend, Suncamino travelled to sunny Cape Town in South Africa where their local botanist added the beautiful bouquet of floral botanicals that compliment the brand’s signature notes. If you love a flavour packed rum, this is definitely a good shout.

Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gin

Mouthwateringly delicious, Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gin uses a recipe handcrafted in a time-honoured way from the ancient Indian knowledge of herbs. A refreshing twist has been added with hand-picked Indian botanicals, seven have been sourced from all four corners of India to create a complex gin that always hits the spot.

1800 Tequila

1800 is the year the world’s first premium tequila, real tequila, was born. For more than two hundred years, 1800® Tequila has never wavered from its original formula and distillation process — producing a 100% agave, quality liquid each and every time. If tequila is your tipple, you need a bottle or two of 1800 on your drinks cart.

Warner’s London Dry Gin

Warner’s are rightly proud of their old London Dry Gin. Farm-grown, easy-drinking and gorgeous-tasting.
Good, honest gin that never had to hide behind naff gimmicks. What’s not to like about that? Most of the ingredients are grown a short way from the distillery.
Because fresh botanicals taste… you guessed it, fresher. Ones like Lavender, Angelica root and Lemon Verbena give this gin an unforgettable taste. Ideal spring and summer fare.

J.G Thomson Bold Jamaican Rum

The delicious and impactful, Bold Jamaican Rum from J.G Thomson is 100% pot distilled. The classic rum “funk” is the first thing you will notice when pouring yourself a glass. Fermenting bananas, pineapple, fresh sugarcane, dark molasses and woody spices can be tasted. Love a rum cocktail? You’ll be in your absolute element with this one.
