Yorkshire Dales Distillery 'Love Me Berry Sweet' Valentine's Day Cocktail

As Valentine’s day rolls around again, it’s guaranteed that couples will be thinking about just how to celebrate the big day with surprise gifts, trips, dining and oh so many more magical things to showcase their love for one another. Evidently, the list of sweet delights and endearing gestures of adoration is seemingly endless and alas, here I am adding one to that wonderful array. If you’re more the type to get cosy at home instead of show your love with flashy gestures, or if you love to head out for a sophisticated meal followed by a romantic night in, then I have just the thing you’re going to love. I have been shaking up a delightful cocktail using the Yorkshire Dales Distillery’s very own Purple Ram London Dry Gin to create for you this Love Me Berry Sweet cocktail. This fruity sensation is a treat for the eyes and the taste buds, as it has flavour notes ranging from fresh, aromatic strawberries (renowned for being an aphrodisiac, but I digress...) and zingy blueberries. Completed with lots of ice and fizzy tonic, it’s a total treat and oh so perfect on the big Valentine’s Day. So sit back and enjoy this post, and why not shake one up for your loved one as a surprise?!


What you’ll need:-

1 – 2 shots of ‘The Purple Ram London Dry Gin’ by Yorkshire Dales Distillery

1 x 250ml bottle of tonic water

3 fresh strawberries, cut in slices

A handful of fresh blueberries

2 x shots of cranberry juice

Sugar for the edge of the glass

Ice cubes

1 x Tumbler Glass (mine is an exclusive Yorkshire Dales Distillery one, shopable online here)

How To:-

1. Start by chilling the tonic. It’s vital for this cocktail to be at its very best. Pop the ice cubes in the freezer too and add the sugar to the edge of the glass.

2. Once the ice and tonic are chilled, cut the strawberries and add to the tumbler glass along with the ice cubes and the blueberries. To release the juice from them, you can crush some of the berries to add flavour.

3. Pour over the tonic water and then follow this by adding in the cranberry juice for both flavour and colour. 

4. Your cocktail is complete! Simply serve up and enjoy with your loved one!

The distillery is a family-run business set on the edge of the beautifully picturesque Yorkshire Dales just outside the historic market town of Richmond. They took inspiration from their stunning surroundings which has paved the way for the Yorkshire Dales Distillery to professionally hand craft exceptional spirits, which embody the essence of Yorkshire. Hand crafted and small batch distilled to provide a truly artisan product, they use ancient Swaledale mineral water and traditional Yorkshire ingredients to make their drinks one of a kind. This is in keeping with their ethos of sustainability.

Owners, Sarah and Tony Brotherton have ensured that their company ethos is beneficial to their local area. Located in Catterick Garrison, a military base, the distillery has strong ties with the Military Covenant and employs veterans, as well as actually being veteran owned. As a brand, the Yorkshire Dales Distillery is committed to helping the community and prioritises employing veterans, young people, ex-offender and long-term unemployed people for all job vacancies.

Exceptionally smooth, quadruple distilled and 100% vapour infused through select Yorkshire botanicals, including artisan local honey. A sweet nose of spicy orange, a smooth citrus palate and a balanced juniper finish. Mix with freedom
