MAYFIELD ‘THE CUCKOO LINE’ RHUBARB & GINGER GIN LIQUEUR
MADE WITH MAYFIELD SUSSEX HOP GIN
The two latest tales from Mayfield Distilling Co. come in the form of two natural and vegan friendly gin liqueurs; The Cuckoo Line ‘Rhubarb & Ginger’ and The Lucky Horseshoe ‘Elderflower & Peach’ gin liqueurs. Mayfield ‘The Cuckoo Line’ Rhubarb & Ginger gin liqueurs label depicts another folklore tale from Mayfield Village in East Sussex, a tale of the old railway line nick named ‘The Cuckoo Line’…
The tale…Our story starts in the village of Mayfield, as the daffodils rouse their sleepy heads, an old woman comes down the Cuckoo Line, Choo Choo. Around her Sussex folk gather & Heathfield children chatter, awaiting fair Spring proclaimed anew. And lo, appearing from her bushel - a flock of feathered creatures that cry, Cuckoo Cuckoo!
Made using Mayfield Sussex Hop Gin as the gin base with natural and ethically sourced fresh, crisp rhubarb and spicy ginger, this wonderful 50cl gin liqueur is perfectly balanced, vegan friendly and now available to order from Emporia Brands.
Clear, pale pink colour (think Provence Rosé). There is a crisp rhubarb on the nose with ginger coming through on the palate along with the pine character of juniper and a spirity lift. The acidity of rhubarb and sharpness of ginger are a brilliant foil for the sweetness of liqueur, while the gin base adds a lovely freshness to the lasting finish.
