Muti-award winning Otterbeck Distillery has released two brand new, and very different, gins to mark this Saturday’s World Gin Day (June 12).
Strawberry and Pink Peppercorn Cotton Gin
The multi-award winning Distillery is the brainchild of husband-and-wife teams Nicola and Dougie Lampkin MBE and Alexa and Chris Ives, and is located within a converted 18th century cotton and silk mill on the banks of the Otterburn Beck near Skipton in Yorkshire. The name for their new Strawberry and Pink Peppercorn Cotton Gin was inspired by a ‘Cotton Ginny’, a machine used in cotton production at the mill.
The team at Otterbeck love to support and work with local shops, producers and hotels such as Keelham Farm Shop, the Michelin starred Angel at Hetton, Coniston Hotel and Tame & Wild – and firmly kicking off strawberry season in style, this delicious gin is a collaboration with strawberry producer Annabel’s Deliciously British – also based in Yorkshire.
Strawberry and Pink Peppercorn Cotton Gin is a fantastic al fresco alternative to the summery tipple, Pimm’s – light, fresh and fruity with an unusual pink peppercorn finish.
Lovingly crafted using the finest botanicals, this premium small-batch gin is distilled at Otterbeck Distillery from botanicals including Yorkshire Watercress, English Coriander, hand-foraged local spruce, rowan berries, nettle leaves and mint. These compliment the ripe strawberries from Annabel’s farm perfectly.
Strawberry and Pink Peppercorn Cotton Gin has an RRP of £37.95 and is available from Booths or at www.otterbeckdistillery.co.uk.
