Poetic License Picnic Gin, local – Sunderland
Limited Edition Strawberries and Cream Gin. To be enjoyed with friends while the sun is shining. We recommend it with premium elderflower tonic water over ice with a fresh strawberry, or as a summer fruit cup with lemonade and mixed fruit.
Poetic License Northern Dry, local – Sunderland
Main flavours are Juniper, Cardamom, Pepper, Citrus. Expect a big punch of juniper that is finely balanced with green cardamom for a warm and spicy flavour. With undertones of lemon and eucalyptus, the inclusion of Persian lime intensifies the citrus feel while adding perfume.
Malfy Con Limone, Italy
Big, clear fresh citrus, fruity and floral. Complex and vibrant. An artisan gin with citrus and floral notes distilled in Cumbria and using water from the river Derwent and local Lake District botanicals sourced from the ancient hills and dales.
Whitley Neill Rhubarb and Ginger, England
While the original Whitley Neill Gin is inspired by the exotic flavours of Africa, this has its roots firmly in the UK. Subtly tart with clear rhubarb influence. A twist of orange sweetness and herbaceous coriander brings balance to the hints of ginger on the palate.
To make Brockmans, exquisite botanicals are sourced from all over the world. These include some typical ingredients such as angelica from Saxony, Bulgarian coriander and juniper berries from Tuscany. The more traditional notes of gin are combined with a refreshing influence of citrus and aromatic wild berry.
