The inspiration for my cocktail was the River Teith; the powerful river which fuels Deanston’s distillery. The river is symbolic of Deanston’s ambition and community, as well as a symbol for the need to progress and move forward in our industry. Naming my cocktail “Just like a River” represents my dedication to bettering my community through my collaboration with Good Night Out and the medium of Deanston.
