A Global Cocktail for St Andrew’s Day (November 30th) – Whisky News


What brings Russians, Greeks and Scots together? St Andrews Day! While here in Great Britain we most commonly associate St Andrew with the flying Saltire and use the national day as a chance to toast to all things Scottish, he is also the patron saint of diverse nations around the globe.

To honour this international saint’s day on 30th November, new and award-winning Scotch whisky brand R&B Distillers have created a cocktail that brings together ingredients several of these nations in one St Andrew’s Day tipple.

The St Andrew’s Martini features a dash of R&B Distillers’ own Scotch whisky Raasay While We Wait, potent Stolichnaya Blue Vodka from Russia, a Greek Kalamata black olive and is garnished with a vibrant twist of zingy Amalfi lemon, to honour the fact that the relics of St Andrew are preserved in Amalfi cathedral.




10mls of Raasay While We Wait

40mls of Stolichnaya Blue Vodka

20mls of dry vermouth


Stir and serve in a martini glass

 Garnish with a Kalamata Olives and a twist of Amalfi lemon.
