Cuckoo Spiced Gin

Cuckoo Spiced Gin

70cl | 42% ABV | England

Cuckoo Spiced Gin is an unusual proposition, with a creamy, soft base going toe to toe with a fiery spice cupboard selection. Cooling fennel prevents a full blaze from starting, but it certainly has a warming nip to it.

Cuckoo Spiced Gin flip flops between warm and warmer, bold and peppery with a thick thread of juniper running throughout. It works well in a G&T, but we love it with ginger ale and a squeeze of lime.

Key Flavours

"Warming, hearty flavour profile that understands the balance between spiced ingredients and fiery heat. This has a bit of both. Making it compelling to return to."

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 cloves, ginger, lemongrass and cinnamon – and distil.

Cuckoo Gin is made by Brindle Distillery up in Lancashire. It is a family affair, with Cath and Gerard Singleton cajoling their grown children into helping out. The family were inspired to make gin after visiting Cotswolds Distillery.

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.

"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."
