ZYMURGORIUM: MARMALADE MANCHESTER GIN
Zymurgorium Manchester Marmalade Gin Featuring Duerr’s Manchester Marmalade.
Our Heroic Citrus gin collaboration coming to kick down tonsils and spark some taste buds!
Like a ray of bright morning sun this gin has a true citrus twang that’ll wake the senses.
Firstly we macerate our original Manchester vodka with wild juniper and balancing botanicals, we then blend in the key ingredient; the finest Manchester Marmalade crafted by the Duerr’s, the UK’s oldest family owned preserves producer. Who have been making top quality preserves since 1881! With an array of Seville oranges & exotic tangerines, Manchester marmalade has the perfect mix of classical bittersweet & delicate fine aromas.
This is then traditionally distilled where the vapour is passed over sweet seville peel to finish the flavour also leaving it with its light golden orange hue.
Aromas of fresh marmalade, with creamy, bittersweet citrus taste…

flour, spices, baking powder, muscovado sugar and salt. Add the wet to the dry and stir well, until
thoroughly combined and there are no pockets of flour.
Spoon into the prepared tin and bake for 25 – 30 minutes until risen and golden, and a skewer comes
out clean. Leave to cool completely in the tin.
Meanwhile, mix 2 tbsp sugar syrup and add the Marmalade Gin. Poke a few holes in the top of each
cake and drizzle a small amount of syrup.
For the frosting, whisk the butter until light and fluffy, then whisk in the cream cheese, followed by
the icing sugar, clementine juice and Marmalade Gin. Continue whisking until smooth and creamy.
Once completely cool, cover each cake with frosting. Decorate with nuts, sugar carrots or grated
clementine zest, and enjoy with a large G&T!
