Our Blackthorn Cocktail is a gin-based deliciously fruity drink, using both gin and sloe gin liqueur to give the Blackthorn Cocktail it's distinctive berry flavour. More often drunk in the winter; the vermouth and bitters can be added to suit the drinker. A wonderful cocktail box to get someone who's partial to a blackthorn!
The original blackthorn cocktail actually used whiskey back in the 19th century, in New Orleans; as whiskey was more widely available at the time. Since then the blackthorn cocktail has evolved to include gin instead, we think it's much better alternative!
