Award-Winning Passionfruit Martini

Award-Winning Passionfruit Martini

We are proud to announce our Passionfruit Martini was recently awarded a Great Taste Award from the Guild of Fine Food, one of the most recognised stamps of excellence in the Food & Drink industry.

As we pour, bottle and label every single bottle that leaves Kocktail HQ ourselves, and with this cocktail only having launched in March, we are incredibly proud of this significant accolade.


The Passionfruiit Martini was adapted in 2002 by the famous Douglas Ankrah, who founded London's LAB bar, during his time working at The Townhouse bar in Knightsbridge, London. Ankrah says that the original drink was inspired by a visit to a particular 'club' in Cape Town and originally named it the Maverick Martini.

When the cocktail was unveiled in 2002, it became an instant overnight sensation, and LAB and Townhouse because two huge hotspots of the London cocktail revolution.

Two decades on from it's creation, the Passionfruit Martini is one of the most popular cocktails in the UK made from what is considered one of the most delicious fruits in the world - the passionfruit.

Our Passionfruit Martini is made using vanilla vodka which is balanced tart passionfruit, a hint of lime and a splash of Aperol to deliver a rich, indulgent finish.

Simply pour, shake and serve! Enjoying a world-class, award-winning cocktail has never been easier.
