Discarded Cascara Vermouth

My first major project as digital editor of Caffeine Mag: an investigation into Discarded Cascara Vermouth. This two-part video series delves into the mystery and magic that is Discarded Spirits’ new product: a cascara based vermouth. For those of you not in the EU/UK cascara has pretty much been banned for use due to strict commercial consumer consumption laws… until now! It’s been a while since I’ve been this excited about a new spirit, and I can vouch that it’s DELICIOUS.

Thank you to the team at Grind for participating in the video and showing us how to make some delicious Discarded cocktails - they have a whole Discarded menu available and London & Shoreditch Grind right now.

A big thank you to Joe Petch, Discarded is pretty much his baby and his enthusiasm and passion was inspiring. And all the baristas/coffee folk who trusted us with our blind tasting in the second video.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a video without my editors, Scott & Tim who helped out with most of the filming and were the faces of the video.
