The Fyntini

The Fyntini

It’s World Martini Day and we’re celebrating that most gin-tastic of cocktails in the only way we can — by mixing a few fabulous Fyntinis of our own!

While the precise origins of this iconic concoction are lost to time, the basic ingredients have remained for over a century. For a very Manx twist on America’s greatest invention (back of the queue, Edison) follow this simple recipe for our Fyntini.

The traditional martini has birthed so many variations across the years, so feel free to try it with any of our Seasonal or Kerala Chai Manx Dry Gins. Olive or lemon peel? It’s up to you… but we always appreciate a sharper citrus edge

And if you’re a member of Craft Gin Club, we thoroughly recommend stirring it up with Elder Shee Special Edition for an extra special elderflower twist.


The Ingredients (serves one):

▪️ 50ml Fynoderee Manx Dry Gin (Which one? You decide!)

▪️ 20ml dry vermouth

▪️ Twist of lemon peel to garnish

▪️ Martini glass (chilled to perfection)

▪️ Ice

The Method:

  1. Fill a mixing glass with plenty of ice and pour in your choice of Fyn and vermouth
  2. Stir, stir, stir
  3. Strain into your perfectly chilled martini glass
  4. Garnish with a twist of lemon peel
  5. Sip back and celebrate World Martini Day

Alternatively, if you’re more of a vodka martini sort, try it with our delicious honey-tinged Manx Bumbee Vodka — on the Island, we call this kangaroo a wallaby!

Please enjoy responsibly
