DemiJohn is the World’s First Liqueur Deli, from Scotland.

I had the pleasure to met them in the BBC GoodFood Summer Show.

DemiJohn’s bottles are very characteristic, from glass and they are refillable and a piece of art.

They have Cocktails already prepared and ready to be gifted, as well as different types of Vinegars or oils.

Raspberry and Lime Vodka
Citrus Sundowner Cocktail


Oil and Vinegar Tower


I got these to try out




Lemon Rapeseed oil – Great in grilled Turkey steaks!



Grapefruitcello Liqueur – Limoncello has a new variety, and equally awesome!



Rhubarb Vodka Liqueur – sweet and fresh flavour…a cotton candy for the palate.



Elderflower Vinegar – several uses for this delicate flavour even for a vinegar.


Hold Your Horses Cocktail

This cocktail is orginally from DemiJohn’s kitchen.Frist created during the Badminton Horse Trials in May 2016.

Originally made with Tonic water, I have tried it with Qcumber (a sparkling water with cucumber flavour) and made my own measurements.

I just made my version of it using some different ingredients:

You will need (per glass):

  • Tonic Water or Qcumber
  • 1 Tbsp Elderflower vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Rhubarb Vodka liqueur
  • 2 Tbsp Grapefruitcello liqueur
  • Ice
  • fresh juice of 1 lime (1/2  of the the lime per glass)


  1. In a round glass, add the ice and mix the elderflower vinegar, the rhubarb vodka and the grapefruitcello.
  2. Mix with a spoon, subtle
  3. add the Tonic Water or the Qcumber
  4. add the lime juice
  5. stir
