BRINDLE DISTILLERY PRESS RELEASE
CUCKOO GIN TO CELEBRATE THEIR ANNIVERSARY AND WORLD GIN DAY 2019 WITH LIMITED EDITION RELEASES
Brindle Distillery, the creators of international award-winning Cuckoo Gin, are excited to announce the launch of a Limited Edition range of gins to celebrate World Gin Day 2019.
World Gin Day takes place on Saturday 8th June, which also marks Cuckoo Gin’s 2nd Birthday; the date in which Brindle Distillery launched their product into the busy and now very diverse gin market here in the UK.
Diversification has always been at the heart of Brindle Distillery, which has grown from it’s humble farm roots and is now starting to be recognised as something very special within the gin market. In what you would call a diversification of sorts, Brindle Distillery has aged each of their Cuckoo Gins (Signature, Spiced and Sunshine) for 60 days in ex-bourbon barrels, to produce limited edition batches for Cuckoo followers and curious gin fans to enjoy. The gins, which are produced at Holmes Farm in Brindle, are distilled, aged, rested, labelled and bottled on site, continuing to instill pride and provenance in their products.
After sourcing the barrels, Cuckoo’s Master Distiller, Mark Long, was keen to experiment with them after admittedly trying some ‘cracking’ cask aged gins on the market.
“The delicate and brief ageing process adds such a lovely extra dimension to the gins we produce. Our Signature Gin has gained more enhanced smoothness, whilst our Spiced Gin’s flavour has deepened through the smoky back notes of the oak barrel. Sunshine gin is sweet to start with, given the addition of honey, and this really comes to life with hints of vanilla from the barrel.”
The ex-bourbon barrels are also being put to further good use as the distillery are currently ageing their very own rum, made with the finest Lancashire Molasses and resting comfortably, although temporarily, within these barrels.
The Limited-Edition Cask Aged Cuckoo Gin range will launch at Junipalooza, which takes place at Tobacco Dock, London to celebrate World Gin Day 2019 on the 8th and 9th June.
