Where Men Can Become Better Gentlemen



Blackberry Gin


Addingham Fruit Liqueurs, Addingham, Ilkley, West Yorkshire, England, UK.


Addingham Fruit Liqueurs.


This small family run business was started by Fiona Mann at the beginning of 2011, after being introduced to Sloe Gin several years earlier by her now late Father-in-law. Making her own fruit liqueurs at home she was encouraged by friends and family to go commercial after they sampled her kitchen made creations. With a background in customer service and marketing she had been running her own business, Mann Made Events in the local area.

Today Fiona produces a variety of fruit liqueurs and supplies them to local retailers in and around the rural village of Addingham (on the edge of the picturesque Yorkshire Dales) where she lives. The business is slowly but surely developing and a new website was set up at the end of 2013 to support this growth.


All the fruit liqueurs produced by Addingham are infused using natural and locally sourced, picked or foraged ingredients.

The deep red colored Blackberry Gin is presented in a clear cylindrical bottle with rounded shoulders and a white twist cap. The small simple white label has a colored image of blackberries with black colored text stating “Blackberry Gin” and “Home Made in Addingham”.

Tasting Notes

We have yet to try this or any of the other fruit liqueurs made by Addingham, so are unable to provide any detailed tasting notes. However, we understand this is vivid and sweet blackberry with juniper from the Gin in the finish – we look forward to sampling this in the future.

Poem "Blackberry Picking" by Seamus Heaney to listen to while drinking this Gin:


Listen to anything by the Blackberries while drinking this Gin. Here they are performing "Kasbah."
