Darkside is Tappers’ signature gin and the first in the Tappers range. Darkside acquired the name from the affectionate term given to the Wirral Peninsula by nose baggers (an Edwardian term for day trippers) from Liverpool who venture over to the ‘dark side’ of the River Mersey to visit quaint seaside towns and villages. Darkside reflects local, good-natured, rivalry and doffs a hat to the region’s maritime history.

A delightfully pleasing mix of seaside botanicals, including red clover flowers and leaves, chickweed, and freshly foraged sea beet, is infused with five other valuable ingredients for an authentic taste of coastal Britain. Darkside has warming, herbal notes and is smooth and dry to finish.

Country Of Origin: England

Tappers Gin was established in May 2016 out of a passion and desire to independently produce gin that is genuinely and authentically made in the way that it is advertised: handcrafted in small batches from start to finish, in the seaside town of West Kirby, Wirral.

Less than 80 bottles of gin is produced per batch. Each bottle is individually filled, labelled and wax sealed by hand.

The name 'Tappers' comes from an old nickname given to the Master Compounder at Tappers Gin (which coincidentally is also slang for a tavern keeper who 'taps' kegs or casks!)

The gin is independently compounded which involves steeping (infusing) botanicals to a carefully designed recipe. Compounding is the same method used to make sloe gin and results in a flavoursome and complex drink. The resulting tipple has an amber-hue which comes from the infused juniper berries. All botanicals are natural and include freshly foraged ingredients such as sea beet.
