A distillery which was launched in the Lincolnshire Wolds two years ago is launching a festive limited edition gin.
Massingberd-Mundy Distillery has made just 150 bottles of the mulled winter berry gin.
Management say it comes at the end of what has been a “spectacular” year for the business which has picked up awards for its artisan gins, including accolades from the World Gin Awards, IWSC, The Gin Guide and Lincolnshire Life’s Taste of Excellence Food & Drink Awards.
Created by master distiller Tristan Jørgensen, each bottle of mulled winter berry gin is numbered by hand, making each one unique.
The spirit is distilled using locally-sourced ingredients and hand-bottled on the South Ormsby Estate.
The Christmas gin is infused with fresh figs, blackberries and locally grown elderberries as well as a perfect blend of mulling spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and dried orange, and is a festive twist on the distillery’s Marie-Jeanne’s Pink Gin, which has won five awards including gold in the 2021 World Gin Awards and best flavoured gin in The Gin Guide Awards.
Massingberd-Mundy Distillery head distiller Tristan Jørgensen said: “I love absolutely everything about Christmas and I’ve been working on this gin for months to capture the smells, tastes and the overall feeling of that perfect Christmas Day.
“On the nose, you are greeted with cinnamon, cloves and winter jam berries, and to the taste, your palette is hit with an intense burst of strewed fruits with warming cinnamon and cloves.
“The finish of this luxurious festive gin is fairly lengthy and intensely moreish, leaving you wanting your next sip.
“It’s brilliant with just tonic, or enjoyed neat, but I recommend serving it with a light tonic, garnished with fresh blackberries and either a cinnamon stick or a fresh fig to finish.
“My father was from Denmark and they have a word ‘hygge’ which describes the warm, cozy, and contented feeling you get from being snug, comfortable and happy on a winter’s day.
“For me, this mulled winter berry gin is hygge in a bottle and I hope it brings everyone who drinks it a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year.”
The gin is available from selected shops and from the South Ormsby Estate website while stocks last.
