Cuckoo Signature Gin
The Cuckoo range continues to be one of our most popular gin collections, created just next door in Brindle Distillery, Lancashire. Their base of Holmes Farm provides the secret to their success - fresh spring water from their artesian aquifer, many botanicals grown on the farm or locally sourced, and even a natural source of honey from their beehives, sustained to help the bee community thrive.
The original Cuckoo Signature Gin is a proper London dry gin that is citrus. floral. and very refreshing. A complex gin, it has a smooth mouth feel to aid those who like to sip. After a slightly sweet, piney juniper start, the flavour develops into citrus from orange, grapefruit and lemons. It finishes with lingering cinnamon spice and liquorice, plus a peppery kick from coriander seeds. Try with Mediterranean tonic, a slice of orange, optionally adding Cardamom Pods.
Brindle Distillery was the idea of Gerard and Cath Singleton to diversify Holmes Farm, which has been in the family since 1930. The meticulous quality of their gin and spirits production has meant the idea surpassing expectations, with the national reputation of the Cuckoo range leading to a plethora of awards and the establishment of their very own bar and events space on-site, The Cuckoo's Nest.
