In keeping with the crustation celebration, mixologists at the pub and restaurant have whipped up a cocktail that complements and champions the seafood delicacy, using real Whitstable Rock Oyster, which have Protected Geographical Indicator (PGI) status.

Silvery patron tequila is mixed with fresh lime, triple sec and a dash of tabasco. The drink can only be finished with a real PGI Whitstable Rock Oyster to perfectly balance the explosion of citrus flavours.

The cocktail is one of a number launched at the pub for the summer season.

There’s also the Whitstable Sunrise, with orange juice, pineapple juice and grenadine. The fruit infusion has simple ingredients, but promises to be as exciting as its boozy counterpart.
