Move over cider, it be all about the ice tea for 2014.
Leading the alcoholic ice tea movement is new kid on the block, Trumpeters Alcoholic Ice Tea.
Created by Melbourne husband and wife duo, Hayden and Anna Newton, the inspiration for the locally brewed tipple lies in 1920’s New Orleans. In the midst of prohibition, jazz bands playing in speakeasies would cool their lips with ice tea and a cheeky splash of vodka.
Fast-forward over 90 years and this recipe has motivated the birth of Trumpeters – a refreshing blend of Ceylon tea and pure super premium vodka. When served over ice and with a slice of lime it’s the perfect antidote to a day in the summer sunshine.
Trumpeters source only the most premium and organically grown tealeaves grown deep in the Sri Lankan mountains. To capture their distinctive flavour, the tea is put through a unique cold infusion method to produce a subtle and refreshing taste.
Combined with top-shelf triple distilled vodka, Trumpeters Alcoholic Ice Tea truly embodies the taste of summer.
Trumpeters Ice Tea is exclusively available in Melbourne across selected venues including Belle’s Diner in Fitzroy, Electric Ladyland on Chapel Street and The B.East in Brunswick. You will also find Trumpeters in selected liquor stores including Smith Street Cellars in Collingwood.
