Distilled and bottled in Norwich in Bullards own craft distillery, this gin is made using real strawberries, black pepper, lemon peel and cardamon to give a sweet and spicy combination.

It is also quite possibly the most delicious and unusual gin you will ever taste. Fresh and light with a taste of properly fresh strawberries (definitely not dried or artificial), it’s the one that we’ve got hidden at the back of the kitchen stash so that undeserving heathens do not waste it and the one that I go for when I’ve had a particularly shitty day and need a proper treat.

The distillery’s own serving notes say ‘best served in a tall glass with lots of ice, fresh strawberries, mint and a splash of tonic or lemonade for a deliciously tasty summer tipple’. I say serve it plain with ice and tonic in order to let its natural flavour come through, because it is DELICIOUS.

Drinkability: 10/10

Serve with: A smile on your face.
