Cuckoo Signature Gin

70cl | 43% ABV | England

Cuckoo Gin is a wonderful countryside affair with a soft creaminess and a constant juniper presence. It has won many blind tastings, so even when you put aside that gorgeous bottle, it’s a spirit well worth its place on your Gin shelf.

Oats add a soft, sweet creaminess to Cuckoo Gin that really complements the homemade base. The juniper itself evolves constantly, from bright and fruity to peppery and punchy. Delightful! Serve with Tonic and a slice of orange.

"The combination of oats and the distillery's own cereally base spirit into the mix helps add a characterful tone to the gin, but it's the juniper and waxy citrus that does all the talking here. Delicious in a G&T."

About this product

The Cuckoo Gin team sow the seeds and harvest the wheat and barley that goes into their base spirit. They mix this with a bought in base, then add their botanicals – including oats and juniper – and distil.

Cuckoo Gin is made by Brindle Distillery on Holmes Farm up in Lancashire. It is a family affair, with Cath and Gerard Singleton cajoling their grown children into helping out.

Brindle Distillery is still a working farm, although the cow shed now rather resembles a mad scientists lair. The team have a sizable collection of gins to their name and a philanthropic ethos.
