A True Taste of the Wild North Land

Unruly Lady Gin Cocktail

Harnessing the power of the freshest natural ingredients, this is a cocktail that will transport you all the way to the North Point Distillery in beautiful Caithness.

North Point Distillery in Caithness uses a mixture of 17 botanicals, including Scots Pine taken from a Christmas tree planted in one of the founder’s gardens. Sustainability is at the heart of North Point. From off-setting carbon footprints by sourcing raw ingredients by sourcing raw ingredients and using recycled materials for all its packaging (including its bottles), to using stills powered from renewable electricity, this is a proud and ambitious team that not only produces fantastic spirits; it really lives by its core values too. This gin marries perfectly with the citrus I’ve used as the grounding for my cocktail, but it’s equally as delicious served with a wedge of grapefruit, Cushiedoos tonic and ice.


Ingredients (makes one):

  • 50ml Crosskirk Bay gin
  • 1/2 squeezed grapefruit
  • 75ml cloudy apple juice
  • 25ml orange liqueur such as Cointreau
  • 15ml crème de cassis
  • 15ml grenadine
  • 1 tbsp egg white (optional)


Pour all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with lots of ice, shake vigorously, then pour through a fine mesh strainer and serve immediately into a martini glass or similar.

Garnish with a fresh raspberry or a swirl of grenadine.
