Lost At Sea Cocktail
27th February 2023
Sometimes losing your way on the unpredictable waves of the open ocean offers a new journey in life, it allows you to experience something new, meet people you’ve never met before and explore a new version of yourself.
The Sparkling Wine – Casa Gheller
The vineyards of Casa Gheller are located in the Trevisan hills in the famous Valdobbiadene area, which is well known for the production of Prosecco.
Under the famous Villa Sandi brand, Casa Gheller is offering another take on the delicate characters of Prosecco.

Aroma – “Lively ripe fruits, green pears, green apples, yellow fruits, yellow floral notes and a touch of herbal gardens on the aroma.”

The Rum – Two Drifters
Created from the love and passion between husband and wife, Russ and Gemma Wakeham, from Devon, the decision to create their own Rum didn’t come as a big surprise, as the adventurous spirit had always been a part of their lives, from their first date (rum tasting) through to their honeymoon (St. Lucia), Rum has been with them throughout every unforgettable moment in their lives together, along with most Friday nights.
Two Drifters was created in 2019, but the initial idea came before whilst working in Vancouver, Canada, the name Two Drifters comes from Gemma walking up the aisle on their wedding day to Moon River and both knowing that it meant, ‘Two Drifters off to see the world.’ Chemistry took Russ and Gemma far and wide, but they both knew that Devon was home and where they wanted to be.
Two Drifters – Pure White Rum – Tasting Notes – “Smooth, relaxing and blended wonderfully, it tastes clean and healthy, with notes of vanilla, green apples, white pear, white pepper and lime zest.”
I reached out to Gemma Wakeham the CMO & Director of Two Drifters to ask, Where Will Two Drifters Be Sailing In The Future?
“Our mission, from the start, has always been to influence the drinks industry by making world class rum without contributing towards global warming. If we can show that a truly sustainable spirit is chosen over another, then brands will need to do more to reduce their own environmental impact. We now have national UK distribution, we ship to over 10 EU countries, our rums are available in Canada and Israel and we have just secured a contract with a major British airline, to be the rum onboard all their planes and we’re only 3.5yrs old! The next few years will be focusing on growth and getting our name, story and rums in front of more people. Just by drinking our rum, you avoid CO2 from entering the atmosphere, we just need to keep making our rums as delicious as possible!” – Gemma Wakeham
