With the apples picked and potatoes almost harvested, we can’t help but get a little excited of the transition into the Autumn/Winter season here at the distillery. The leaves are changing colour, the nights are drawing in and the temperature is dropping leaving us reaching for our wellies and an extra layer.
There is nothing better than coming in from the cold to a comforting Autumn cocktail created with flavours and ingredients inspired by the season.
