Locksley Morocello - 70cl - 27.1% ABV
Locksley Distilling, so named for Nottingham’s most famous export, Robin Hood, is one whose growth and evolution shows no real signs of slowing. Launched by the ever present, ever pleasant John Cherry back in 2014, the brand has gone from a one-gin-band to a whole sea of amazing gins, all made in-house and bottled in beautiful, gift-worthy custom glass.
This is one we’d name as a Gin Geeks pick. The bloggers and ginfluencers that we see on a regular basis are always raving about John and his band of merry gins. From the Elderflower-heavy flagship to the more juniper-centric spin offs, there is a great selection to choose from.
Locksley Morocello is the Nottingham team’s take on a Limoncello, with an intense Sicilian Moro Blood Orange infusion. This is sharp, loud and crisp at first, with that citrus twang landing heavy at first sip. The second is heavenly, though, setting a sweet, liqueur sweetness on the tongue that is offset by a lightly medicinal hint.
To serve: No bells and whistles required – just drink it fresh out of the fridge.
