Cuckoo Gin at Brindle Distillery

The independent distillery is situated on Holmes Farm, nestled in the beautiful undulating landscape of rural Lancashire in the north west of England, in the charming, historical village of Brindle. Housed in a renovated barn and traditional red brick farm buildings, the distillery is home to Maggie, the latest addition to the family. The delightful yet sophisticated hand-built copper column still works alongside her kinsfolk, distilling the very finest in small batch handcrafted spirits. 'Born ’n’ bred in Brindle? A Brindle Cuckoo tha’ be!' the amazing community inspired the name Cuckoo, which is the name given to all the spirits made at the distillery. An old farmers tale, the first call of the Cuckoo meant spring had arrived and it was time for the farmers to harvest and make money. In all their wisdom, they tried to keep the bird in the village hoping the good weather would stay all year long. Unfortunately, the wall they built was not big enough and the Cuckoo flew away leading to the wives calling the farmers ‘cuckoo’ for such a silly idea!  It was only fitting that anything born ‘n’ bred at Brindle Distillery was given the name Cuckoo.

The Range:

Signature Gin

Spiced Gin

Sunshine Gin

Solace Gin

Supernova Gin

Sundowner Rum

Cask Aged Gin

Spring Vodka

Scrumpy Vodka

Negroni Bottled Cocktail

Brindle Distillery is not just a place for production and distribution. It has become a popular destination for the local community and for people visiting Lancashire.  

Tours – two action packed hours of education on spirit making and some proper Lancashire laughs. You will be shown around the distillery, production area and see what happens daily inside a working Gin Distillery. Four gins included and a food break halfway through.

Workshops – similar to the tour with the show around and gin and food offerings only this time you become the distiller for the day. You will make your very own 70cl bottle of gin and take the lead all the way from recipe development to distillation.

The Nest – The Cuckoo's Nest is the name we give to the bar. There has been a bar in the distillery since 2017. After a brief hiatus in the summer of 2018, we reopened in 2019 and we have never looked back. An amazing selection of drinks are available (not just gin), local food outlets, great music, and a vibrant family-friendly atmosphere.
