Here at Durham Distillery, we love a good excuse to raise a glass, and there are few better excuses than by celebrating World Gin Day! We marked this very special occasion by making one of our favourite Durham Gin cocktails.
Quintessential British summertime flavours of elderflower, apple and cucumber taste fresh and clean in the glass, but the complex spicy and savoury notes of our gin still keep it balanced. Best enjoyed strolling the grounds, in your own (country) garden. Cheers!
