Reverend Hubert's heavenly award-winning Summer Cup and Winter Gin Liqueur are hand crafted in the Cotswolds using the most divine real fruit and spices: from Amalfi Lemons to English rhubarb and Sri Lankan spices. Originally made in 1904 by Reverend Hubert himself using prizewinning fruit from the vicarage garden for his congregation's Christmas party and summer village fete, these recipes have been elevated by his great-grandson Thomas.
