10 weird ingredients that have been used in gin

The holy spirit…

While Cathedra Gin is distilled with the rather more typical juniper, orange, elderflower, almond and vanilla, it is also Britain’s “first ever” cathedral-brand gin.

Unveiled this month, the gin will be made by Lancashire’s Brindle Distillery – the home of Cuckoo Gin – on behalf of Blackburn Cathedral.

It is hoped that sales of the spirit will help the cathedral’s fundraising efforts for a £1 million redevelopment of the crypt into a community and conference centre.

Named in reference to the seat of the Bishop found in every English cathedral, the gin’s name was also chosen with the hope that other cathedrals may stock the product with profits going to them instead.
