Having discussed how Abbie and Chris plan to get the distillery up and running in this part of the episode we discuss what plans they have for the future.
Having taken the plunge to start their own distillery in the glorious countryside of Yorkshire, Chris and Abbie explain how they are going about creating their “dream” into a reality.
We were really excited to visit a new venture just starting it’s construction, Cooper King Distillery in Yorkshire.
Chris and Abbie tell us how they started their journey to create a whiskey they hope will become known as one of the best in the world.

In this episode, we taste SteamPunk’s Florence Gin which is a Parma Violet flavoured Gin. This Gin definitely hits the spot, if you like Parma Violet you will love this gin!
In the second part of this episode, we taste a Rose flavoured gin from the SteamPunk distillery.
The taste of this gin immediately reminds one of Turkish Delight confectionery and makes either a great short or long drink.
In the first part of this episode, I bring back a sample of Steampunks Pirate Gin for John (M) to taste.
John loves the crispy lemon/citrus flavours in this gin and the new way to taste the gin prior to the main slurp!
In the last part of this episode, we taste Steampunk’s strongest offering their Pirate Gin.
This gin is made to the same recipe of the steampunk gin but is 45% in strength.
Having received feedback as to how smooth their Steampunk Gin was they felt a stronger version could be offered for drinking on it’s own as one would with a malt for example.
On tasting, I could not have agreed more!
We quickly introduce this episode where having tasted some of Steampunk’s excellent gin at the distillery, John L brings back some for John M to taste.
In part 2 of this episode, we taste some flavoured gins produced by Steampunk Gin. The first flavoured gin we taste is Steampunks Florence Gin which tastes predominately of parma violet.
We then go on to taste Steampunk’s Prudence brand which is a rose flavoured gin.
Both gins managed to achieve a sweet taste without being cloy in any way and in fact still managing to refresh the palate.
In the first part of this episode, we discuss how Charlie came about creating the recipe for his fantastic gin.
He also explains what goes into his gin and gives some suggestions of how to taste the gin.
Smooth is the word with fantastic citrus notes and a great long finish.
