London bartender Tony Conigliaro has launched a bottled Negroni cocktail for the off-trade. 

Conigliaro, who founded bars 69 Colebrooke Row and Bar Termini, created the gin, vermouth and bitters blend at his Drinks Factory development lab. The drink is cooked sous-vide at a low temperature over several hours, stimulating the "breakdown of aromatic compounds in the liquid" and speeding up "the ageing process", creating a drink akin to a bottle-aged cocktail, Conigliaro said.

Conigliaro serves the Negroni cocktail and three other variations at Bar Termini. He hopes to offer all four Negronis -  Classico, Robusto, Rosato and Superiore - in bottled form "in the near future".
