Designed to be savoured, not slammed, El Rayo’s T&T is shaking off the English stereotype of late-night shots and instead serving tequila in a completely new way – with tonic.
El Rayo’s beautifully crafted Tequila has been born from a desire to share the flavours of modern Mexico. The unique taste, which is 100% natural, comes from the slow-grown Blue Agave plant, which matures in Mexico’s highlands for eight years. Thanks to this sole ingredient, with natural herbal notes, El Rayo doesn’t need to add any additional botanicals or manufactured flavours.
Their gift box is an ideal introduction to both of their tequilas, and fits conveniently into an adult stocking.. Or purchase the full products for £34.95 – £36.95.

This unique spirit has been crafted to capture the essence of a bitter orange aperitif such as Campari with flavours that are distinct and contemporary. Lyre’s spirits don’t just mimic, they have their own distinction as a premium, non-alcoholic beverage. Rich mouthful of flavours with blood orange and red citrus taking the lead. Maraschino brings balance, adding to the generosity on the mid-palate, giving a length of flavour followed by a persistent, pithy dryness.
