  • Cocktail Name: Into The Woods
  • Bartender: Sofia Pinkard
  • Venue/Bar: Wilderness Restarurant
  • Location: 1 Dudley Street, Birmingham B5 4EG.

The Wilderness began life as a pop-up in a number of locations around Birmingham, eventually settling on a permanent location in the city centre. Its philosophy is modern British food and drink, and for both, they work with small farms, allotments and foragers to capture a sense of place.

Sofia Pinckard has spent years learning her craft under the pressure of high volume cocktail bars, which led her to want to understand more diverse flavours available, not just from conventional sources, and The Wilderness has given her the opportunity to do just that. This is reflected in the range of unusual ingredients she has used here.

Into the Woods is built up from a base of Distil No9 vodka, with Blackdown Silver Birch vermouth. The sense of place comes with the addition of her acorn and soil tonic syrup, and she finishes with a touch of lemon zest. It is stirred over ice and, true to the overall philosophy, served without a garnish.

About Distil. No.9

Distil. No 9 is a modern interpretation of traditional craft Ukrainian vodka. The goal was to bring back the age-old style from vodka’s original heartland, western Ukraine, with a focus on the careful selection of local raw materials and the quality of the final product. The production of the vodka requires time, patience and even a share of luck, but most importantly - perseverance.
