Home gin cuckoo will pitch against ‘away’ gin Martin Millers
Every home game we welcome an ‘away’ gin, handpicked by our gin supplier to be a match for our resident ‘home’ gin, Cuckoo.
This Saturday sees The Millers make the trip to Ewood, so what better gin to serve than Martin Millers!
Martin was an avid traveller and on his quest for perfection, he insisted that all botanicals were selected on a quality first basis, not solely on regional provenance. This was a principle he applied to the sourcing of all his ingredients.
The result is a full citrus taste with juniper notes emerging. It has a clean soft finish with a hint of dryness, making it a gin that can be enjoyed neat too.
Our home gin, Cuckoo, is distilled just up the road in Brindle. It’s a complex gin with a smooth mouth feel to aid those who like to sip. After a slightly sweet, piney juniper start, the flavour develops into citrus from orange, grapefruit and lemon with a lingering taste of cinnamon spice and liquorice. It’s dry on the finish with a peppery kick from coriander seeds.
Both gins are available at all hospitality bars on Saturday.
