“Hello, Sunshine”, that unmistakably enduring Lancashire term used to great a loved one helped inspire our third Cuckoo Gin expression. Working alongside the Bee Centre in Samlesbury, Lancashire, Cuckoo Sunshine Gin is made with natural honey produced on our farm by Lancashire Honeybees. Honey as a substitute to sugar helps create a smooth and sweet gin and a burst of fruit from raspberries that have been infused provide an instant taste of sunshine!
Inspired by local legend, Cuckoo Gin has been lovingly handcrafted at Brindle Distillery and made with ingredients that are locally sourced and grown in the fields that surround the distillery building.
Their natural artesian aquifer, located in a nearby field, delivers fresh, natural spring water to the distillery. This water is used in the distillation of Cuckoo spirits and also in cooling the still.
