The growing trend for at-home cocktail making has prompted Antica Sambuca to fit a spout to its bottles.

The eight-strong range of flavoured sambucas (rsp: £15.99) will feature the new Pro-Pour spout in Asda stores from later this month. The spout is built into the neck, enabling drinkers to pour quickly and accurately without any mess, said a spokesman for brand owner Hi Spirits.

"Increasingly, consumers enjoy mixing drinks at home, and Pro-Pour helps them recreate cocktail recipes they enjoy when they're out," he added.
