1. Rhubarb gin 

Rhubarb cocktails and rhubarb gin in container
Whether you're using forced rhubarb or seasonal produce, our rhubarb gin is 100% irresistible. Use just three ingredients to make a batch of this beautiful booze, then have it ready to go in a gin and tonic garnished with a slice of fresh ginger. Use caster sugar rather than golden – the latter will spoil the colour as the juice is drawn out of the rhubarb. 

Try it topped up with soda water for a sensational thirst-quencher. 

2. Strawberry gin

Bottle up our raspberry gin to add a pretty pink hue to your favourite cocktails for months to come. Feel free to experiment with flavours, we love the combination of raspberry and lemon, raspberry and vanilla or raspberry and almond for a Bakewell twist. For an added bonus, use the leftover booze-soaked raspberries in a cocktail, trifle or turn them into a granita

5. Damson gin

Got a glut of damsons to use up? Make a batch of our decadent damson gin. Try our top tip of freezing your damsons before bashing them to release the juice, rather than pricking each one individually. This flavoured gin also makes an excellent addition to Christmas cakes and puddings. If you'd rather a 'cleaner' overall flavour, swap the gin for vodka.
