Durham Distillery releases a gin liqueur

Durham Distillery has added to its range of gin and vodka with the new Strawberry and Pink Pepper liqueur.

The small-batch craft distillery, based in the outskirts of Durham, has been distilling since 2013. Its Strawberry and Pink Pepper Liqueur has been produced using Durham Gin – its handmade gin, infused with extra pink pepper for added warmth and strawberry juice.

Originally producing solely Durham Gin, the company, founded and led by Jon Chadwick, branched into Durham Vodka and some seasonal products in 2014, and having experienced success with previous launches its newest liqueur will now be available all year round. Managing the distilling process in-house, the team of six produces just a couple of hundred bottles at a time.

Jon Chadwick, founder and owner of Durham Distillery, explains: “We produce gin and vodka with genuine integrity – hand-crafting small batches using traditional methods and excellent ingredients, by people who are truly passionate and knowledgeable about what they are doing.

“Our head distiller, Jess Tomlinson, oversees every step of the process from the start of the distilling through to the bottling of the final product. To say she really cares about what she does is an understatement – a comment you could probably make about all of us here.

“We’re a small operation, so don’t have to sell millions of litres annually to break even, our aim is offering a quality and delicious product to the discerning gin or vodka drinker. Those who may drink less but drink better.”
