Small-batch distillery makes strawberries and cream gin

Picnic-Gin-EMAIL-1-762x1024Independent, small-batch distillery Poetic License has transformed the classic strawberries and cream combination into a limited-edition gin.

The UK-based company has spent six months perfecting the seasonal recipe, which it said is believed to be the first of its kind on general sale. It combines traditional botanicals, including juniper and coriander, with a mix of real strawberries and cream that are both distilled and infused to ensure a stronger, fruitier taste.

Poetic License’s 37.5% ABV strawberries and cream picnic gin, best served with a premium elderflower tonic water or lemonade and mixed fruit, is being produced in a limited run and sold, subject to availability, from late May.

“Many flavoured gins are either distilled or infused but ours uses both processes to pack as big a punch as possible,” said distiller Luke Smith.

“After months of experimenting we have now found the perfect combination and hope Poetic License strawberries and cream picnic gin will soon find its way into picnic baskets across the UK.”
