Durham Distillery reveals new liqueur for winter
Durham Distillery has launched a new winter liqueur to add to its range of bespoke gin, liqueurs and vodka.
Durham Damson, Blackberry and Ginger Liqueur is made from Durham Gin infused with the winter fruits and ginger for additional hear and warmth.
Jess Tomlinson, head distiller, explained: “Due to the success of our strawberry and pink pepper liqueur earlier this year, we just knew we had to pull out all the stops for our winter edition – no pressure at all!
“I think it is key to get the balance of flavours just so, for example our gin balances spicy, sweet and savoury. Building on this foundation, we wanted the winter liqueur to hit the right notes.
"The combination of smooth damson berries, soft and light blackberry and the warming ginger finish tastes great – it feels right for a winter tipple. We love this liqueur served with a bitter lemonade and some stem ginger or as an addition to Prosecco – always a winner.”
The small-batch craft distillery, based in Durham, has been distilling since 2013 and is one of the UK’s most traditional distilleries, using only the highest quality ingredients and a 400 litre copper pot called Lily, after the owner’s daughter.
The in-house team of six produce just 300 bottles at a time to ensure maximum quality.
The new Damson, Blackberry and Ginger Liqueur priced at £23 for a 30% abv drink, in 70cl bottles.
