The story behind the drink

The Lychee Martini, a delightful blend of exotic flavours and classic mixology has origins traced back to the late 20th century, when bartenders began experimenting with innovative ingredients. By some accounts, it made waves in 1993, created at a bar called Decibel in New York’s East Village when they combined the classic Martini with a lychee syrup, something they say was already being done at their bar of the same name outside Tokyo. Several bars quickly picked up the recipe and slight variants, causing a bit of a craze to take off – so while there is some dispute over it’s exact origins, it has become a popular addition to menus around the world.

The ingredients

Our Lychee Martini is made with Sapling vodka, distilled exclusively from British wheat. It’s distilled four times, resulting in a very clean, crisp, and naturally sweet taste. The purity brings out herbaceous and citrusy notes which lends itself beautifully to vodka tonics, vodka lime sodas, and our cocktails. A climate positive spirit, for every bottle of Sapling we use, they plant a tree, from fruit trees in London to hazelnut trees in Suffolk. We pair this with both lychee liqueur and puree, giving the drink it’s distinctive floral and fruity flavour.
