The spirit of the countryside


What’s not to love about walking through the countryside and picking fresh blackberries from the hedgerow? Thorns and prickles aside, there are few things more satisfying than trundling home with a bounty of glistening berries in a basket, and master gin makers, Two Birds, have captured that joyous gratification in their delicious blackberry vodka.

Two Birds are award-winning gin producers who also make artisanal absinthe and vodkas which ‘express all the natural ingredients and botanics of the great outdoors’, using hedgerow fare to produce delectable, seasonal spirits. The blackberry vodka is best enjoyed poured over ice but can be used to make the ever-popular Bramble cocktail, fitting for the season. Two Birds Spirits are available from The Stamford Cheese Cellar, and having tried both the blackberry and after dinner mint varieties there at the weekend, I can tell you that they are superb!
