Chestnut House, Pooley Bridge Cumberland Saucy Gin
Andrew Kaye owner of Chestnut House approached us at Solway Spirits to make a unique bespoke GIN exclusively for his shop in the beautifully picturesque village of Pooley Bridge.
Andrew wanted something that really represented the Cumbrian area. We got to work making numerous different infusions and distillations, but eventually hit on the wonderfully aromatic Cumberland Saucy Gin.
Inspired by the traditional recipe for Cumberland Sauce. This Gin is a fruity, spicy juniper forward gin. Redcurrants and orange peel dominate, whilst black peppercorns, mustard seeds and coriander give an underlying warm finish.
This Gin stands with a vast array of other spirits available from the wonderful drink and food emporium at Chestnut house, it is so popular we produce it in 70, 50, 20 and 5cl sizes bottles, only available at Chestnut House on on their website: wwwchestnuthouseonline.co.uk
The Tipsy Filly, “Giddy Up” and “Saddle Up“
Helen Askew is the original Tipsy Filly !! anyone who has had the good fortune to attend one of her demos or events will understand.
Helen along with her dad have converted her old horsebox into a beautifully floral, mobile gin & prosecco bar.
Helen is a born entertainer, with a wicked sense of humor, and a real flair for mixology..you dont like GIN…. you will when Helen’s listened to your tastes and mixed you one of her creations I
The Tipsy Filly was determined and excited about having her own GIN, something in keeping with her business, something to strengthen her brand.
After talking to Andrew at Solway Spirits they came up with two GINS that just box perfectly together
Saddle Up and Giddy up ..very appropriate
Saddle up : is the fruity number made with Cumbrian rhubarb, fresh limes and lemons,fennel seeds and lots of plump juniper berries, Helen likes to serve it with a lime wedge garnish with greek basil
Giddy Up: Is the floral offering made with local Cumbrian rose petal a hint of lemon and lime and those so important juniper berries, great served with a slice of orange and a sprig of rosemary Helen designed her own labels and we think they are fabulous !!
