Bourbon & Mulberry

Boodles Proper Gin introduced Boodles Mulberry as the first first-ever mulberry gin in America and we just had to try it. We decided that for our first cocktail we would use it to make a Bourbon & Mulberry.

Jasvir found the recipe in a Food& article, Mulberry Gin Is Just the Thing For Your Almost-Springtime Drinking, and while the other 2 Mulberry Gin cocktails in the article sounded quite nice, this was billed as a “perfect nightcap” and that was the clincher.

It turned out to be a slightly sweet, berry favored cocktail with that Manhattan feel but turned dessert. I think we will have to try the Mulberry Sour Next.


  • 2 ounces of bourbon
  • 1/2 ounce of sweet vermouth
  • 1/2 ounce of mulberry gin.


In a mixing glass with ice, combine all ingredients. Stir together until well-chilled, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Garnish with a big twist of lime peel and a brandied cherry.

Boodles Proper British Gin introduces Boodles Mulberry, the first-ever mulberry gin in America. Boodles Mulberry pays homage to the humble mulberry tree which has been a familiar sight in the English countryside for centuries. Inspired by the traditional sloe gin liqueur, Boodles Mulberry is a fresh interpretation of a British classic.

Traditional sloe gin – a product long steeped in British tradition – serves as the primary inspiration behind Boodles Mulberry. Made with mulberries, Boodles Gin and a blend of natural ingredients, Boodles Mulberry is a liqueur that is perfect for sipping both warm and cold over the holiday season.

The taste combines delicate mulberries with notes of raspberry and currant to create a sweet and subtle medley. Boodles Mulberry adds the perfect complement to Boodles British Gin’s unique botanicals of rosemary, nutmeg and sage, creating the proper balance and complexity of flavour.
