Pale salmon pink in colour. The palate shows red berries (ripe raspberries and redcurrants) and strawberry shortcake with almost imperceptible juniper and subdued spice. Faintly sweet, black pepper spiced red berries – more reminiscent of a raspberry spiced vodka than a gin. Cracked black pepper dominates the raspberry cream soda finish.

It all came about after founder Stephen was told by doctors to stop drinking wine. Not quite ready to quit the sauce, he turned his attention to spirits and started experimenting at home, mashing assorted fruits with different spirit strengths. He wasn't intentionally creating a pink drink, it's just that after working his way through an entire fruit bowl, raspberry delivered the best flavour. G&J Distillers, one of the world’s oldest gin distilleries, was recruited to the cause. They produce the core spirit with five botanicals to our original recipe. We then macerate with a further three botanicals, including fresh raspberries grown locally to our rural base outside Cambridge. Judging by our growing band of admirers, it certainly seems that people are ready for something a little unusual to tickle their taste buds. Welcome to the natural gin with a mischievous grin.
