Celebrating Negroni Week

Celebrating Negroni Week

We’re celebrating Negroni Week.

As we welcome September and the beginning of autumnal cocktails, we start with the celebration of a week long sipping festival.  Better known as Negroni Week, celebrated and enjoyed around the world by many bartenders and gin connoisseurs . As part of Negroni week we wanted to shine a light on our limited edition cask finish gin.

Our founder and distiller David, worked in collaboration with our local wine merchant in Crossgar. JNWINE.   Together they selected casks from Chateau Cantemerle, Grand Cru Classe France.

They were then shipped to our distillery where each one was slowly filled  and  rested  for a period of time, before decanting and bottling.

This final Shortcross edition has a light ruby hue, a herbaceous floral bouquet on the nose, with dark fruits lead to bright juniper, followed by a balance of spice and botanical oils giving a lush rich finish.
