35cl * 23% ABV * Surrey Hills, England
With no additional sweeteners or artificial flavourings, Hurt Liqueur has been hand crafted to partner with all types of sparkling wine, particularly English sparkling wines. Local to Surrey, intensely flavoured Hurt berries are found abundantly in the beautiful Surrey Hills, and in particular the area surrounding the Hurtwood. Hurts are also found elsewhere in the UK, but with local names such as Whortleberry, Huckleberry, Hurtleberry and Trackleberry. The Hurtberry has been eaten by local tribes to enhance their diet since Iron Age days. The summit of Holmbury Hill itself is dominated by an Iron Age hill fort surrounded by wild Hurts.
It makes an excellent ice cream sundae for grown ups, poured over ice cream and enjoy as an after dinner treat. Straight up, with or without Ice, for an intensely fruity but drier drink. It also makes a mean pink gin!
In terms of dosage, try adding 5-10ml to a Sparkling Wine or Prosecco is the perfect blend. For a Pink Gin, we recommend adding 5-15ml to your favourite Gin & Tonic depending on how pink you want to go!
