This is a proper full strength 40% gin. It is not a liqueur.

We start by distilling a dry gin created specifically for this spirit.

After distillation, we infuse the dry gin with real dark sweet and Morello cherries.

There is a degree of sweetness. But the sugar content is much lower than supermarket flavoured gins.

Fruit ratios
Dark sweet cherry: 50%
Morello cherry: 50%

This product was reformulated to have more cherry flavour from batch #17 onwards. This applies to all batches after #17, which includes #20, #28 and #34.
