Cuckoo's grapefruit gin wins double gold

Cuckoo Supernova Gin, created by Lancashire's Brindle Distillery, has picked up a double gold at the San Francisco Spirits Competition 2022.

The award is the highest available in the flavoured gin category, and follows on from it being named a Master Gin by the Spirits Business Awards in 2021, the year it was launched.

One of the gin's crowning achievements is that its grapefruit flavour is attained without the use of artificial flavouring or sugars.

Mark Long, master distiller, said: "Our dedication to our craft and commitment to only using natural ingredients in our spirits has allowed us to create a delicious gin with strong, natural flavour. It’s something we’re very proud of and we are delighted our hard work has been recognised at the highest level.”
