Cast your minds back to September, when the bramble-tangled hedgerows were heaving with plump jewel-like berries. It seems rather a long way off, doesn’t it? Well, luckily for you, we’ve captured the taste of winter in our Bramble Gin Liqueur — the perfect Christmas gin liqueur to add to your festive drinks cabinet. Blackberries may well grow in the countryside, but the world-famous Bramble cocktail (the flavour inspiration behind our Bramble Gin Liqueur), was very much an urban invention, with legendary London bartender, Dick Bradsell first mixing-up the cocktail in his London bar, using London Dry Gin and Crème de Mûre – the rest is gin history. In the same spirit, we hand-crafted our new Bramble Gin Liqueur by resting fresh-pressed blackberries on our London Dry Gin before straining the fruit and sweetening with a little sugar. The finished blackberry gin liqueur has a fruity nose of crisp green apples and jam, a smooth, berry-rich palate and warm notes of seasonal mulled spice to end.
The perfect festive gin liqueur
Our delightful Bramble Gin Liqueur was such a hit with our Sipping Society members that we just had to bottle it and add it to our Christmas gin range (if you haven’t come across our new Sugar Plum Liqueur or our Smoked Chestnut Gin yet, you are in for a seasonal surprise). The Bramble Gin Liqueur is a must-have over the festive period – perfect for seasonal sipping, or even some brilliantly brambly Christmas cocktails.
