Nestled in the peace and serenity of the Eden Valley, Black Cat distillery can be found at the magnificent partially restored 14th century fortified hall at Brougham Penrith. We are surrounded by the echoes of the past, within a stones throw of Neolithic sites, Roman forts and Norman Castles. The inspiration behind Black Cat Gin’s recipe development fuses traditional techniques and Southern Asiatic and European botanicals with hints of Africa to create modern and elegant flavours. We tie together these cosmopolitan influences with water that runs through the Lakeland fells which contains the very soul of the Lake District.

Distilling: The use of the finest ingredients in our contemporary distillery gives Black Cat Gin the cleanest flavours which bubble and combine in our shiny copper pot still. It is twice distilled in our thumper and then condensed to produce the sparkling flow of ginny ambrosia.

We had a lovely day yesterday with Michael and Tracy on our gin workshop. Tracy created a refreshing cucumber gin with delicate floral notes with a hint of raspberry  whilst Michael created a beautiful floral gin with a lovely twist  of orange and a delicate cubeb pepper finish.
Both truly gorgeous gins.
