It may be one of the smallest craft gin producers in the UK, but The Little Quaker Distillery is big and bold when it comes to flavours.

Owned by husband-and-wife team, Paul and Leanne Colman, the couple put nothing but passion into their product and their range features the original Quaker Gin, as well as playful flavoured gins and rum.

When it comes to the distillery’s signature gin, Quaker Gin, expect a cool refreshing drink with citrus from the lemon, orange and grapefruit. The flavours are followed by a smooth taste of sweet summer fruits that comes from the maceration of elderberries, with hints of cherry, blackcurrant and strawberry undertones.

Quaker Gin is a London dry gin with a northern twist. A bold tasting gin, it hits home at 43% abv and is best served with Merchant’s Heart Hibiscus tonic. Paul and Leanne also recommend using strawberries and raspberries to garnish, or if you prefer to pull out the citrus notes, try pink grapefruit.
