Ten UK gin distilleries that grow the ingredients for their base spirit

Cuckoo Gin

Cuckoo Gin, founded in 2017, is distilled at The Brindle Distillery on Holme’s Farm in Lancashire. Home to the Singleton family since 1930, the grass land has been transformed into barley fields, marking the first time in over 40 years that the land has been used for arable purposes.

The barley is used to make the alcohol that then graces the distillery’s hand-made still called Maggie. Maggie is heated using renewable energy biomass boilers, and the byproducts of the distilling process are also used in the cattle and chicken feed. The straw from the farm’s home-grown barley is even used as packaging when transporting bottles of Cuckoo Gin.

The Brindle Distillery produces two gins: Cuckoo Original and Cuckoo spiced.
