Darkside Gin (an affectionate name for the Wirral Peninsula) is Tappers' signature spirit, inspired by their coastal foraging heritage and made with fresh, natural, seaside botanicals that include sea beet, chickweed and red clover.

Resinous juniper and wisps of smoke greet the nose. To taste the profile is savoury, leafy and herbaceous and finishes with long, dry piney flavours. Try it with Mediterranean tonic & a sprig of thyme and wedge of orange.

Key Flavours

""The name Darkside comes from a term given to the Wirral Peninsula, in the spirit of local good-natured rivalry, by day trippers from Liverpool who venture over to the ‘dark side’ of the River Mersey to visit quaint seaside towns and villages.""

About this product

One of the very few gins entirely made through compounding botanicals in neutral spirit - which is reflected in the all-natural amber hue, full-bodied mouthfeel and distinctively complex savoury taste of the sea.

Tappers are an independent family business who hand-craft their gin in small (tiny) batches from their seaside home and Distillery on the Wirral Peninsula, near to the historic cities of Chester and Liverpool.

The Wirral Peninsula is reflected in the coastal nature of Tappers' flavour profile and whilst they are moving from their original home to a new space nearby, expect this provenance to be imbued in every drop!

"The best gin in the Tappers range in my opinion. Pine needles and juniper berries are a match made in heaven, further lifed by meadowsweet. A spectacular release of forest-like flavours are captured in each drop."
