Calling all gin and cake lovers - Mrs Cuthbert’s is a new range of British Gin Liqueurs. The inspiration came from one of the founder’s late Aunt Dorothy, aka Mrs Cuthbert. Born and bred in Yorkshire, Dorothy was a frugal home-baker, typical of the 1940s and 1950s era. She was also partial to gin and liked to garnish her G&Ts with a cake or pudding ingredient, creating bespoke cocktails.
The first flavours in the range include: Mrs Cuthbert’s Parma Violet - Mrs Cuthbert’s Rhubarb & Custard Crumble - Mrs Cuthbert’s Lemon Drizzle - Mrs Cuthbert’s Cherry Bakewell. Serve with tonic or prosecco. Don't they all sound fantastic?
Mrs Cuthbert’s Gin Liqueurs are bottled at the Yarm Distillery in North Yorkshire. They come in 50cl bottles, have an ABV of 20% and RRSP of £13.99. Available from Amazon; B&M stores; thedrinkshop.com; local retailers, pubs & bars
