THE STORY BEHIND THE COCKTAIL NAME
The local Postman. An often overlooked, under-appreciated slave to the mail whom we see every day with barely a word spoken between us. No longer. Mr. Postman is a walk along a mailman's route in suburban Australia, with Acacia (Wattle) sap being used as a nod to its traditional and modern day use as a gum Arabic for envelope seals. Raspberry guides the palate down the path where my neighbours let their raspberry bush dangle from the fence line, the rich fruit, tart at first becomes sweet. The Hero, second only to the mailman themselves, Laphroaig 10 delivers an earthy kick, a sweet smokey lick to carry any mailman up gruelling hills rain, hail or shine. Take off that high vis, park your postie and settle in, your package has been delivered.
