This drink has a very varied and pleasant taste. It is very mild and characterised by the sweet and tart flavours of the ginger beer. Together with the tart flavour of the lime and the juniper flavour of the gin, the result is a very round flavour profile.

How the famous London Mule came to be

Gin is the spirit of recent years. Slowly, quietly, gin has become one of the most important spirits in cocktail bars. Along with it, various cocktails have been developed or rediscovered, such as the London Mule. Actually, this cocktail is just a variation of the well-known Moscow Mule. The trademark of this drink is the eye-catching copper cup, which cannot be overlooked even in cocktail bars. Originally, this drink consisted of ginger ale, lime juice and vodka. Swapping the base spirit is something quite normal with one drink or another, and this is also how the London Mule came about.
