While many cocktails straddle the fine line between taste and aesthetics, most are a compromise. The Aviation is an exception. This drink manages a uniquely beautiful appearance thanks to the Crème de Violette, a liqueur made with actual violets, while still tasting (and smelling) absolutely delicious.

Our version combines a generous dose of gin (always a good start) lemon, maraschino liqueur and a splash of the all important Creme de Violette.

The Aviation Cocktail is available in the following pre selected edits:



• 100ml bottle
• 22% ABV
• 1.7 Standard Drinks
• Store between 4-7°C
• Once opened, keep refrigerated and consume within 3 days. (As if you needed encouragement!)

• Chill this bottle of violet hued joy, shake over ice and strain into a chilled Martini or Coupe Glass. Now, sit back, relax and enjoy the flight.

• Don’t have a cocktail shaker? No problem, use a mason or jam jar with a tight-fitting lid or simply pour into an ice filled glass and stir for 30 seconds before straining into your chilled glass of choice. The longer you shake or stir, the more diluted your cocktail will become.

• You can also pop it in the freezer for a half hour before pouring into a chilled glass.

• Feelin' Fancy? A couple of Luxardo or Maraschino Cherries or blueberries on a cocktail pick will elevate your cocktail to the next level. A lemon curl perched on the side of the glass would also be gorgeous. Follow our easy HOW TO guide on creating the perfect citrus curl on our blog HERE.

The Aviation cocktail is a fantastic classic cocktail created by American bartender Huge Enslinn and first appeared in his book “Recipes for Mixed Drinks” in 1916. This was the early age of aeronautics when air travel was a glamorous luxury that only the rich could afford and the cocktail is so named due to the Crème de Violette giving it a dusky, sky-blue colour.

This elegant cocktail experienced a long and rocky past due to the scarcity of Crème de Violette until around 2007 when Minneapolis importer Haus Alpenz began importing Crème de Violette from Austria right at the height of the craft cocktail renaissance. The liqueur’s newfound availability led to the Aviation reappearing on bar menus across the United States, and more recently in Australia as bartenders rediscovered this classic and somewhat nostalgic recipe.
