Truly small batch, crafted in a 50litre still
Delicious over ice-cream
Crafted by spirits enthusiast, Andrew
With a really strong & sweet raspberry flavour we describe this as a hybrid – not quite a full strength gin, so can be sipped neat but at 28% the gin flavour is more prominent than with most liqueurs and works well with a mixer a longer drink.
From the Distiller
Big initial hits of raspberry and warmth of the quality Dry Gin, this then mellows with a hint of vanilla into a smooth creamy long-lasting taste sensation
Over ice on its own or with tonic/soda water, also great for desserts such as eton mess & cheesecake!
Andrew has always had a passion for spirits and was keen to begin distilling his own. When he found himself with a glut of apples gifted by friends and neighbours, he decided to trial a flavoured gin – apple caramel to be precise. He then began to experiment with other fresh produce, adding a unique twist on classic flavours such as rhubarb crumble gin and raspberry ripple liqueur. Solway Spirits was established in 2015 and Andrew now produces a range of spirits, flavoured gins and liqueurs in a 50 litre still in his garage – a true micro distillery!
