Toddy Tapper’s Punch is playfully served in a teacup as the colour resembles Ceylon tea. The ingredients marry together wonderfully to create a fabulous aroma and taste quite unlike any other punch you might have come across. A delightful difference from the norm, this punch is meant for those who desire and enjoy drinks made with care and attention to detail.

120ml Ceylon Arrack
40ml Mas Amiel sweet wine
60ml Claret wine
8 slices of fresh orange
8 dashes orange bitters
4 cinnamon sticks
20ml tea infused gomme syrup

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and leave overnight. Add ice and serve in a teacup. Garnish with a quarter slice of orange.



The Ruby Punch is based on an Arrack Punch from Jerry Thomas’s Bartender Guide first published in 1862 (also known as the Bon
Vivant’s Companion). The recipe has been adopted to suit the less sweet modern pallet. It is an excellent summer punch and comes to us at a time when drinking punch has just become trendy.


50ml Ceylon Arrack
20ml Taylors Ruby Port
20ml fresh lemon juice
15ml sugar syrup
75ml black tea (brewed & cooled)


Shake all ingredients with ice, strain over fresh ice.
