Durham Distillery unveils winter liqueur

Durham Distillery has launched a winter liqueur, Damson Blackberry and Ginger, adding to its range of gin, liqueurs and vodka.

Produced using Durham Gin, it has been infused with damson and blackberry, and ginger.

Jess Tomlinson, head distiller at Durham Distillery, explains: “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’s 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.”

Managing the entire distilling process in-house, the team of six hand produces just 300 bottles at a time.
