Cuckoo Gin

Enjoy the perfect Lancashire G&T with a helping hand from Brindle Distillery.

Inspired by the ‘farm to bottle’ process and looking for an alternative to traditional farming, Gerard Singleton had an idea. He would grow barley on the family farm and use fresh water from the spring on his land to make his own alcohol.

With the family on board, Gerard and son-in-law Mark began renovating a farm building and thirteen months later, with the support from LEADER funding, bought Maggie – a hand built copper still named after their Great Auntie Margaret. “She was a proud Lancashire lass who enjoyed a good glass of gin, so it only seemed right that we named our still after her” said Gerard.

Not long after the duo set to work on creating a hand-crafted gin like no other. “We wanted to make something that we loved and could get excited about, but it also needed to stand up in the market” said Mark. And with that, inspired by the local legend of the Brindle Cuckoo and wonderful tale of old, the newly founded Brindle Distillery became home to Cuckoo Gin.

After a slightly sweet start, the flavour develops into citrus from orange, grapefruit and lemon with a lingering taste of cinnamon spice and liquorice. Dry on the finish with a peppery kick from coriander seeds.
