THE CUCKOO LINE
RHUBARB & GINGER GIN LIQUEUR
A DIABOLICALLY DELECTABLE GIN FROM THE HOME OF THE GOOD ST. DUNSTAN, MAYFIELD E.SUSSEX
"DRAGGED BY ITS NOSTRILS TO ST. DUNSTAN'S COPPER POT"
Created by James Rackham, founder of artisanal spirits company Emporia Brands and Mayfield Distilling Co. liveryman of The Worshipful Group of Distillers and resident of Mayfield, E.Sussex. The label depicts the tale of The Cuckoo Line, an informal name for the now defunct railway service in East Sussex.
It’s time for a tale of some very fine gin liqueurs…
“Our story starts in the village of Mayfield, as the daffodils rouse their sleepy heads, an old woman comes down the Cuckoo Line, Choo Choo! Around her Sussex folk gather and Heathfield children chatter, awaiting fair Spring proclaimed anew. And lo, appearing from her bushel - a flock of feathered creatures that cry - Cuckoo Cuckoo!
Made with Mayfield Sussex Hop Gin with natural fresh rhubarb and spicy ginger. Natural and ethically sourced ingredients, suitable for Vegans.
NOSE: A wonderful crisp rhubarb on the nose.
PALATE: Spicy ginger coming through on the palate along with pine character of juniper berries and a spirity lift. The acidity of rhubarb and sharpness of ginger are foil for the sweetness of liqueur, while the gin base adds a lovely freshness to the lasting finish.
