Carlisle cricket club has become well known for its annual gin festival at Edenside – and has now produced its own gin ahead of the Christmas festivities.

Secretary Mark Davidson said: “Everyone knows how many gins we stock at Edenside, so now we have had our own gin produced.

“It's not a copy of any other gin. These have been blended especially for Carlisle Cricket Club and we think will make a perfect Christmas present for those who like a nice drop of gin now and again.”

The Carlisle CC Gin is available at a cost of £32 per 70cl bottle and limited numbers are available.
