Limited edition Branston Pickle cocktail launches at London Cocktail Club

Limited edition Branston Pickle cocktail launches at London Cocktail Club


The ‘Pickle Me Cheesy’ has been created to celebrate Branston’s 95th birthday!

Pickle lovers, your taste buds are about to be treated. Branston – the nation’s favourite pickle brand* – is turning 95 and is celebrating in style. The pickle pioneers have partnered with London Cocktail Club (LCC) to create a limited edition Branston birthday cocktail, which will be on sale at all LCC venues during September.

Crafted by London Cocktail Club’s renowned founder and cocktail master, JJ Goodman, the ‘Pickle Me Cheesy’ is a tantalising take on an apple sour with a zingy pickle twist. London Cocktail Club’s founder, JJ Goodman, designed the cocktail to showcase Branston’s fun personality and hero the classic cheese and pickle combination to a new, younger generation of pickle fans.

Blending Irish whiskey with sherry, lemon, cloudy apple juice, egg whites and – for the ultimate flavour punch – Branston Original pickle; this is a cocktail designed with celebrations in mind. The ‘Pickle Me Cheesy’ comes served in the iconic Branston jar, with a tasty cheese and pickle garnish – the perfect bite-sized treat for cheese-obsessed Londoners.

To add to the celebrations, everyone booking a birthday party at a London Cocktail Club venue in September will be treated to a free Branston cocktail**. After 95 years, Branston wants to say thanks to the loyal fans that have chomped on cheese and pickle sandwiches, saved them a space on their Christmas cheeseboard or even spooned pickle straight out the jar.

JJ Goodman, Founder of London Cocktail Club, said: “I’ve grown up eating cheese and Branston pickle sandwiches and think it’s a British staple well worth celebrating. We are always looking for unique new serves to offer our customers, so we relished the challenge to create a cocktail using pickle. Its acidity adds a new depth of flavour to a sour and is perfectly paired with the cheese garnish – it’s delicious!”

The ‘Pickle Me Cheesy’ will be on the menu at all eight London Cocktail Club venues for £10, ensuring pickle fans across the Capital can get their fix. More information about Branston pickle’s birthday and recipe inspiration can be found at
