The Debut of the Winter Wight

Cowes, Isle of Wight, England

The Winter Wight was introduced at this year’s Island Life Food & Drink Awards party and the feedback was nothing short of fabulous. Martin Potter, owner and publisher of Island Life magazine, commented “With over 300 people from the Island’s best hotels, restaurants and bars present, we wanted a very special opening reception cocktail. The crew at 50 North developed the Winter Wight, which everyone absolutely loved.”

So what’s in the Winter Wight? Ritu Manocha, Director at 50 North, revealed “Having such success in the summer season with the Wight Cup, demand was brimming for a cold weather cocktail. During a particularly wet and windy November day, the team began experimenting and created the Winter Wight, which is best served warmed and shared with close friends.”

Manocha continued “Coming in from the cold and experiencing the scent of the Winter Wight just makes you want to try it. It’s the perfect cocktail to enjoy with friends around a fire!”
