Wilkin & Sons Fruit Gin Liqueurs

The Wilkin family have been fruit farming at Tiptree since the 1800s and still grow a wide range of traditional English varieties. Fruit is hand-picked and includes strawberries, plums, apples and cherries. Now Tiptree fruits are combined with the county’s most prestigious gin distillers to imbue their beautifully rich fruit notes.

Tiptree partner the Hayman family, local gin-makers since 1863, who use a blend of natural botanicals to create their traditional London Dry Gin. Each small batch is crafted in their artisanal copper still, named Marjorie after Grandmother Hayman.

There are four different flavours: Little Scarlet Strawberry, English Raspberry, English Damson and English Rhubarb. Each can be enjoyed as a long drink with a mixer of choice and this event at Channels will give you the chance to sample them. Try the rhubarb mixed with ginger ale or the raspberry with a rose lemonade, adding a dash of Prosecco or Champagne to create a bubbly Royale. Or they can be sipped neat to savour the fruit notes.
