We are Longflint.
We create a range of beautiful long drinks that feature our handmade tonics, sodas and seltzers. Each is matched with a shot and a half of the perfect gin, rum, mezcal or vodka from our pick of British craft spirits producers.
We come from a craft beer background, starting out as brewers and grafters from a small east London brewery. We set out to see if the lessons we learnt there - namely that stripping out industrial production processes delivers you bags of flavour - could be applied to a different category of drinks.
For example our Hibiscus, Gin Tonic is made by cold brewing whole hibiscus flowers for three hours before blending with our house tonic #2. House tonic #2 is made to accentuate the acids you find in pear and apples as opposed to citrus fruit so that is goes brilliantly with the acidity that the hibiscus brew brings. We then match that with East London Liquor's London Dry Gin for a ruby red G&T experience you definitely won't find anywhere else!
All our drinks feature modern but approachable flavours and we take inspiration from the urban foragers and food and drink pioneers you'll find across the UK.
So far, we’ve produced seven drinks alongside five different spirit partners. Our two latest offerings are Winter Spiced Pear, Vodka Tonic made with whole British conference pears, macerated in East London Liquor Company’s 100% Wheat Vodka before being blended with a light, simple syrup made with ginger, cardamom, cinchona bark, clove and whole clementines. Our second is our session Negroni; freshly squeezed blood orange juice (all the way from Sicily) is blended with Sacred Rose Hip Cup amaro (all the way from Highgate) to make our Negroni Sbagliato - a longer, lighter, fruitier version of the Italian classic.
