Darkside is the signature gin in Tappers' range, inspired by the British seaside and maritime history of their Wirral home. Smooth, herbal and rich in texture, this is a must try for gin lovers!

Honey like Red Clover, peaty chickweed and fresh sea beet combine with juniper and four other botanicals to create a herbaceous, savoury gin. Serve with Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic with a sprig of thyme and wedge of orange to garnish.

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

Tapper's Darkside is made using traditional cold-compounding methods where botanicals are steeped in spirit, but not distilled. After careful infusion and filtration, the spirit is bottled and due to this method, has an amber hue.

A small team lead by Steve Tapril and his mother Sue - they independently produce their gins from start to finish where each bottle is individually filled, labelled, wax sealed and numbered by hand.

Tappers is located near the seaside on the Wirral Peninsula, in-between the historic cities of Chester and Liverpool. The botanical recipes they develop each have a story, inspired by their British heritage and the natural world.

"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."
