When the sun sets, casting a golden-orange hue, there’s nothing quite like a cocktail that captures the mood. Ever thought about combining the soul of Italy with the heart of Orkney? No? Well, let's get your spirits lifted with this concoction!

Meet the Beyla Negroni. 🍹 This isn’t your typical Negroni; it's the Beyla edition. We've taken an Italian classic and given it a cheeky Orkney spin with our Beyla Gin.

Ready to dive in? Here's how you can recreate this marvel:


  1. 50ml Beyla Gin – Our Orkney charm in a bottle!
  2. 25ml Aperol – To bring in that bittersweet Italian elegance.
  3. 25ml Vermouth – A touch of aromatic sophistication.
  4. 10ml freshly squeezed orange juice – To add a splash of zesty goodness.
  5. Orange twist – Because we're all about that garnish glam!


  1. Pop your Beyla Gin, Aperol, Vermouth, and orange juice into a mixing glass filled with ice.
  2. Stir gently but with intent. Imagine you're creating a potion with a splash of Orkney magic and Italian flair.
  3. Strain this liquid gold into an old-fashioned glass over ice.
  4. Finish it up with a classy twist of orange for that beautiful garnish touch.
  5. Bask in its beauty for a moment, and then... indulge!

The beauty of the Beyla Negroni lies in its balance. The gin's hints of honey sweetness and berry goodness dance beautifully with the Aperol and Vermouth, creating a symphony of flavours. It’s a bit like a warm hug from Orkney but with an Italian serenade playing in the background.

Whether you're catching up with mates or just winding down after a long day, this Beyla Negroni is sure to impress. And hey, even if you're a Negroni purist, give this twist a whirl – it might just become your new fave!

So, raise your glass, and let’s toast to mixing traditions, cultures, and flavours. 🥂

Ciao for now, and happy sipping!
