Dark Cherry Gin
Where is the star that lit my skies?
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.
No artificial flavours, colours or sugar is added.
There is a degree of sweetness. But the sugar content is much lower than supermarket flavoured gins.
Dark sweet cherry: 50%
Morello cherry: 50%
Batches #17 and #20 contains twice the amount of cherry flavour as previous batches.
All stock on Amazon is batch #17 onwards from March 1st 2021.
