Named after Robin Hood, the heroic outlaw who picked the rich pockets of Nottingham in an unbidden and undoubtedly jail-worthy act of wealth distribution, Sir Robin of Locksley Gin is a Yorkshire spirit with a tale to tell.

John Cherry first got the urge to open his own distillery in September 2006. He was working in the US at the time, and the craft scene there was starting to stir to life as distilling laws relaxed. He was already fully ensconced in the booze industry, having worked as a buyer in the wine and spirits industry, so despite a distinct lack of distilling know how the idea wasn't straight out of left field.

The Raspberry & Cardamom gin is John’s answer to all the insipid pink “gins” that are out there at the moment, most of which are really badly produced, many with artificial flavourings & colourants. This is made with the regular Sir Robin, infused with around 30 raspberries per bottle, giving it a wonderful depth of flavour & colour. John adds a separate distillation of cardamom to give it more dimension & complexity.

It’s a full strength infused gin, but it gets some sweetness from the fruit. Because John uses real fruit with only a light filtration, there are some fine fruit particles that make it through into the bottle.
