Miniatures are a really important part of how we think about our drinks here at Myatt's Fields Cocktails:
They are fun. They are an opportunity to try a drink you haven't had before. They easily fit into a pocket or handbag.
If you have ice and (ideally) a glass, having a miniature with you means you have everything you need. There aren't many gifts that are more fun to receive than a complete cocktail.
For the student or aficionado, they offer a chance to compare the different vermouths, sherries, spirits and bitters without spending hundreds of pounds.
The bottles are pretty, and can be used in countless ways once empty. Some of the best examples we've seen include an inkwell and a spice receptacle.
Served straight up, it will not get too warm before it is finished, and on the rocks it will not end up disappointingly dilute by the time you have got to the bottom of the glass.
Our Kecello is a bright grapefruit liqueur first produced in 2017. Beautiful on its own, or wonderful with a splash of soda water.

Feedback on our Limoncello exceeded our expectations since we first released it commercially in 2017. The response has always been so generous, and it always sells out very quickly. We love grapefruit, and we experimented a lot with the idea of producing a with the sharp, sweet tang of that fruit.
Finally, we were happy. We had a balanced drink that had a beautiful clear tang of grapefruit and a powerhouse rasp of alcohol. A trace of sweetness is left on the tongue, but it is really all about the grapefruit.
We named our drink Kecello for Rita, our favourite icon.
