A new cocktail line of craft RTD’s is coming out on Danish festivals and food markets this summer.
The microbrewery BRUS and cocktailbar Mikropolis is launching a new cocktail line in the name of Mikropolis Cocktails. Mikropolis Cocktails is brewing drinks on BRUS’s fermentation tanks in Copenhagen, where they are also kegged. Mikropolis Cocktails is all about everything from crushable longdrinks to sophisticated shaked cocktails. The common designation is, that the already mixed drinks are served from kegs on tap, like we all know it from draft beers, but now as ready to drink cocktails.
The team behind Mikropolis Cocktails has been working with cocktail development at Mikropolis Bar in Vendersgade and BRUS in Guldbergsgade for quite some time. For the last 4 years, we’ve been macerating, shaking and testing miscellaneous processes in search of the best cocktails available on draft. We’re brewing tonic water from scratch and developing different flavors including a hop-infused version and playing with everything from distillation to development of herb-flavored liquers and aperitifs. We developed a bitter based on a lot of herbs, spices and business secrets and no additives or dyes. With BRUS and To Øl as backbone, Mikropolis Cocktails has its origin in craft beer, and by moving into the world of cocktails, we exploit our great knowledge from beer production in order to secure the best cocktail quality. We have a small production, handled by skilled brewers, to ensure each batch is optimised and developed every time we’re brewing. In the craft beer world, we have a proud tradition of working across genres and breweries in brewing collabs. The cocktail production will also engage in different collaborations with miscellaneous people and partners from the world of beverages, where we’ll invite people in from coffee-, beer- and spirits to develop new cocktails.
