Poetic License, which is based on the coastline at Roker, began distilling in autumn 2015 on their 500-litre pot still Gracie, which takes centre stage within a bar of the same name. The distillery was created with the express purpose of creating unusual spirits – those which do not conform to the norm.
Their strawberries and cream Picnic Gin is Poetic License’s first limited edition run and promises to be perfect for the summer.
It’s a sweet gin, with a creamy texture and taste and a strong fruity nose as well as more typical gin notes of juniper, coriander and orris root.
Their suggested serve is with elderflower tonic as the extra sweetness enhances the strawberry flavour. It’s essentially British summertime (the nice bits!) in a glass.
