I wish I had known my guest sooner. Every dinner party he has ends with a round of homemade liqueur. The liquid was so good that he was convinced to bottle it for the whole world to enjoy. Now everyone’s dinner party can end with one more sip! 

Thomas Lester was busy doing other things when he realized what he was making was just too yummy not to share. Thus,  Reverend Hubert Winter Gin Liqueur was born. It took a few twists before he had the perfect recipe, but now you just can’t miss its colorful bottle everywhere you look. Who is Reverend Hubert and how did his picture end up coloring the iconic label? 

Well, you’re just going to have to listen in.

The cocktail of the week is Reverend Hubert Winter Gin Liqueur Negroni:


  • 30ml Reverend Hubert Winter Gin Liqueur
  • 30ml Sweet vermouth (e.g., Cocchi Vermouth di Torino or Cinzano 1757 Rosso)
  • 30ml Campari
  • Garnish: A twist of clementine zest


  • Add all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker
  • Add ice
  • Shake vigorously
  • Strain into a chilled glass over ice (a thin layer of foam will form like a winter’s frost on the surface)
  • Garnish with a slice of clementine zest, twisted to release the oil.
